Easy to use, general purpose CuRL wrapper

Basic usage

You'll need to include cacher.inc.php from here before including curly.inc.php.

// Just grab a new instance, the boolean parameter controls caching:
$curly = Curly::newInstance(false)
    ->setMethod('get')
    ->setURL('http://api.icndb.com/jokes/random')
    ->setParams([ 'limitTo' => 'nerdy' ])
    ->execute();
// Then just get the response, you may even specify the format ('plain' or 'json')
$res = $curly->getResponse('json');
// And just use the returned data
if ($res && $res->type == 'success') {
    # Error checking may vary, here the API sets a } `type` member
    echo $res->value->joke;
} else {
    echo 'API error: ' . $curly->getError();
}

For HTTPS just grab a copy of cacert.pem from here and drop it on the same folder where the curly.inc.php file is located.
