Fetch plugin for Craft CMS 3.x

Utilise the Guzzle HTTP client from within your Craft templates.


This plugin requires Craft CMS 3.0.0 or later.


To install the plugin, follow these instructions.

  1. Open your terminal and go to your Craft project:

     cd /path/to/project
  2. Then tell Composer to load the plugin:

     composer require lukeyouell/craft-fetch
  3. In the Control Panel, go to Settings → Plugins and click the “Install” button for Fetch.

Using Fetch

This plugin is built to work with the standard Guzzle request options


Parameter Example value
client { base_uri : 'https://gtmetrix.com', timeout : 10 }
method 'POST'
destination 'api/0.1/test'
options { auth : ['username', 'password'] }

Example Usage


{% set client = {
    base_uri : 'https://gtmetrix.com',
    timeout : 10
} %}

{% set options = {
    auth : ['username', 'password'],
    form_params : {
      url : 'https://www.google.co.uk'
} %}

{% set request = fetch(client, 'POST', 'api/0.1/test', options) %}

Response (successful)

You can fetch the string response by adding an additional parameter of false like so:

{% set request = fetch(client, 'POST', 'api/0.1/test', options, false) %}

Response (error)
