how to send request to an external api

Posted 7 months ago by michaelnguyen547

At the lowest level, I can use curl to an external API server.

For some reasons, I can not do the same with Illuminate\Http\Request.

Here is my example


use Illuminate\Http\Request;

        $request = Request::create(
            'https://google.ca/search=laravel',
            'GET'
        );

$response = app()->handle($request);

The request is sent to myserver/search=laravel , not to google.ca/search=laravel.

I don't know why? Does Request not work for external API?

Here is the dump of Request object
