Solo Requests

While Saloon's typical setup of a connector and requests is great, sometimes all you need is to make a single request to a service. For scenarios like these, you may create a "SoloRequest" instead of making a connector and a single request. This saves you from having to create additional classes.

Setup

Create a class, but instead of extending Saloon\Http\Request, you should extend Saloon\Http\SoloRequest. Next, just define everything else like you would a normal request. Make sure to include the full URL of the service you are integrating with.
<?php
​
use Saloon\Http\SoloRequest;
use Saloon\Enums\Method;
​
class GetAllPokemonRequest extends SoloRequest
{
protected Method $method = Method::GET;
protected function resolveEndpoint(): string
{
return 'https://pokeapi.co/api/v2/pokemon';
}
}

Defaults

Saloon Requests allow you to define all your default headers, config, query parameters and define request body just like you would traditionally with a connector.

Sending Solo Requests

As you don't have a connector for this request, you can use the send or sendAsync methods directly on the request instance. This method works exactly the same as it would on the connector.
<?php
​
$request = new GetAllPokemonRequest;
$response = $request->send();
