    Local CORS Proxy

    Simple proxy to bypass CORS issues. This was built as a local dev only solution to enable prototyping against existing APIs without having to worry about CORS.

    This module was built to solve the issue of getting this error:

    No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://localhost:3000' is therefore not allowed access. If an opaque response serves your needs, set the request's mode to 'no-cors' to fetch the resource with CORS disable
    

    Getting Started

    npm install -g local-cors-proxy
    

    Simple Example

    API endpoint that we want to request that has CORS issues:

    https://www.yourdomain.ie/movies/list
    

    Start Proxy:

    lcp --proxyUrl https://www.yourdomain.ie
    

    Then in your client code, new API endpoint:

    http://localhost:8010/proxy/movies/list
    

    End result will be a request to https://www.yourdomain.ie/movies/list without the CORS issues!

    Alternatively you can install the package locally and add a script to your project:

     "scripts"{
       "proxy": "lcp --proxyUrl https://www.yourdomain.ie"
     }

    Options

    Option Example Default
    --proxyUrl https://www.google.ie
    --proxyPartial foo proxy
    --port 8010 8010
    --credentials (no value needed) false
    --origin http://localhost:4200 *

    Install

    npm i local-cors-proxy
