ForgeBox Module of the Week

hyper

Type: ColdBox Module
Hyper exists to provide a fluent builder experience for HTTP requests and responses. It also provides a powerful way to create clients, Bulider objects with pre-configured defaults like a base URL or certain headers.
Hyper was built after coding several API SDK's for various platforms — S3SDK, cbstripe, and cbgithub, to name a few. I noticed that I spent a lot of time setting up the plumbing for the requests and a wrapper around cfhttp. Each implementation was mostly the same but slightly different. It was additionally frustrating because I really only needed to tweak a few values, usually just the Authorization header. It would be nice to create an HTTP client pre-configured for each of these SDK's. It seemed the perfect fit for a module.
