nodejs-proxy

Simple HTTP proxy for node.js

Nodejs-proxy is a simple HTTP reverse proxy server written in node.js. It currently allows some mid-complexity to handle the reverse proxy magic take place.

Nodejs-proxy was written by Peteris Krumins (peter@catonmat.net). His blog is at http://www.catonmat.net -- good coders code, great reuse.


You'll need node.js to run it. Get it at www.nodejs.org, then compile and install it:

$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install

Next, run proxy.js through node program:

$ node proxy.js

And that's it!

I have also added ip-based access control. As long as no ip is explicitly denied, all will be allowed. If you need a specic access list just echo it to 'allow_ip_list' file:

$ echo '1.2.3.4' >> config/allow_ip_list

And you don't need to restart the server, it will see the changes and update itself.

You can also block hosts based on a regex pattern, to do that, echo the hosts you don't wish the proxy to serve to 'black_list' file:

$ echo 'facebook.com' >> config/black_list

More features coming later!


Happy proxying!
