    electron-proxy-agent

    A proxy http.Agent implementation for HTTP and HTTPS,

    rewritten to work seamlessly with Electron API

    This module provides an http.Agent implementation that uses the session.resolveProxy API of Electron to resolve which HTTP, HTTPS, or SOCKS proxy, or if a direct connection should be used to connect to the HTTP(S) endpoint.

    It is designed to be be used with the built-in http and https modules

    Installation

    Install with npm:

    $ npm install electron-proxy-agent --save

    Examples

    • Single request
    var url = require('url');
    var http = require('http');
    var ElectronProxyAgent = require('electron-proxy-agent');
    var session = require('session').defaultSession;
    
    // HTTP endpoint for the proxy to connect to
    var endpoint = 'http://nodejs.org/api/';
    console.log('attempting to GET %j', endpoint);
    var opts = url.parse(endpoint);
    
    // create an instance of the `ElectronProxyAgent` class with the default electron session
    var agent = new ElectronProxyAgent(session);
    opts.agent = agent;
    
    http.get(opts, function (res) {
      console.log('"response" event!', res.headers);
      res.pipe(process.stdout);
    });
    • Global agent
    var http = require('http');
    var https = require('http');
    var ElectronProxyAgent = require('electron-proxy-agent');
    var session = require('session').defaultSession;
    
    // use ElectronProxyAgent as http and https globalAgents
    http.globalAgent = https.globalAgent = new ElectronProxyAgent(session);

    Notes

    • Passing no or invalid parameter to the constructor would result in trying to use default session.
    new ElectronProxyAgent() // try to use default session
    
    • Could be used or mocked out of Electron by passing an object that implements resolveProxy
    new ElectronProxyAgent({
      resolveProxy : function(url, callback) {
        callback("PROXY 127.0.0.1:8888; DIRECT"); // return a valid pac syntax
      }
    })
