I would like to do this request :

curl -i -X OPTIONS my/url/path

in Magento 2.

This code works :

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt_array($ch, array(
    CURLOPT_URL => 'my/url/path',
    CURLOPT_HEADER => true,
    CURLOPT_NOBODY => true,
    CURLOPT_VERBOSE => true,
$r = curl_exec($ch);

But it's ugly code. I would like use dependency injection to clean my code.

Something like :

 * @var \Magento\Framework\HTTP\Client\Curl
protected $_curl;

 * @param Context                             $context
 * @param \Magento\Framework\HTTP\Client\Curl $curl
public function __construct(
    Context $context,
    \Magento\Framework\HTTP\Client\Curl $curl
) {
    $this->_curl = $curl;

public function execute()
    //if the method is get
    //if the method is post
    $this->_curl->post($url, $params);
    //response will contain the output in form of JSON string
    $response = $this->_curl->getBody();

But there is no OPTIONS method. So do you have any idea how to do?

Disclaimer: I've not actually tried this, so I'm mainly going based off an initial look over the code.

I guess you have 2 options, extend or workaround:

You could extend the Curl client class and use your own class from it. Then you'd be able to make your own options method that does something like $this->makeRequest("OPTIONS", $uri); to call the parent's makeRequest method. Instead of bringing in the Magento Curl client via DI, you'd just bring in your own.

Second option: Magento allows you to set _curlUserOptions values with a public method setOption($name, $value) on the curl client object. In the makeRequest($method, $uri, $params = []) method, these are set after the GET/POST options. I guess it could be possible that you can unset the CURLOPT_HTTPGET option for a get request and set your own CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST there. Have a read through the file at vendor/magento/framework/HTTP/Client/Curl.php and look for the method makeRequest to see what it's doing properly.

Personally I'd make my own class extending the client but that's just me.

    I use your first solution : $this->makeRequest("OPTIONS", $uri); It's work well ! :)
