Decoder Plugin

The DecoderPlugin decodes the body of the response with filters coming from the Transfer-Encoding or Content-Encoding headers:

use Http\Discovery\HttpClientDiscovery;
use Http\Client\Common\PluginClient;
use Http\Client\Common\Plugin\DecoderPlugin;

$decoderPlugin = new DecoderPlugin();

$pluginClient = new PluginClient(

The plugin can handle the following encodings:

  • chunked: Decode a stream with a chunked encoding (no size in the Content-Length header of the response)
  • compress: Decode a stream encoded with the compress encoding according to RFC 1950
  • deflate: Decode a stream encoded with the inflate encoding according to RFC 1951
  • gzip: Decode a stream encoded with the gzip encoding according to RFC 1952

You can also use the decoder plugin to decode only the Transfer-Encoding header and not the Content-Encoding one by setting the use_content_encoding configuration option to false:

$decoderPlugin = new DecoderPlugin(['use_content_encoding' => false]);

Not decoding content is useful when you don't want to get the encoded response body, or acting as a proxy but sill be able to decode message from the Transfer-Encoding header value.
