Middleware for gzip

Many services use JSON for messaging due to its human-readable data and smaller size compared to XML. But it also has its own problems, one of which is the file size compared to binary formats. On a small amount of data, the transfer and decryption speed will be almost invisible in almost any format, but with an increase in the volume, the load on the network can greatly increase.

Of course, if the service data is consumed directly by web browsers, this amount will be difficult to achieve. But when transferring data between servers, for more optimization, you can use compression, for example, gzip.

JSON Compress

In order for application responses to be compressed, it is enough to put GzipCompress as the middleware:

use Sajya\Server\Middleware\GzipCompress;

Route::rpc('/v1/endpoint', [TennisProcedure::class])

After that, we can easily check this with curl:

curl '' --data-binary '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"tennis@ping","id":1}' -H "Accept-Encoding: gzip" --output -

An approximate result would be:

Accept-Encoding: gzip"  --output -

Don't worry if you are confused by such symbols. It's okay, so the compression is working.

Note. If the request does not contain a header about data acceptance in the gzip format Accept-Encoding: gzip, an uncompressed response will be returned.
