Reverse proxy your local web-server
ProxyReverse acts as a reverse proxy, with a simple command-line interface so you can run it anywhere without having to worry about configuration files.
It can be used, for instance, to reverse proxy a local VM to the host computer automatically rewriting Host, Location and Set-Cookie headers, and rewrite html assets to appear served from the host computer.
ProxyReverse is a tool that runs on the command line.
On any system with nodejs and [npm] installed, open your terminal and type:
$ npm install -g proxyreverse
Create a SSL server key and certificate, for example a self-signed one:
$ openssl req -nodes -new -x509 -keyout server-key.pem -out server-cert.pem -days 360
Assuming that you are running your local web-server on a VM with a host-only interface with local access via http://my.dev/
$ proxyreverse 8080,8443 my.dev http://my.dev is now available via: http://localhost:8080 https://my.dev is now available via: https://localhost:8443
Now you can open this link in your favorite browser and request will be proxied to your my.dev serer.
If your domain uses sub-domains for assets, proxyreverse can be told to rewrite them as well, using:
$ proxyreverse -s 8080,8443 my.dev
If your domain's SSL certificate is invalid, connections to it will fail, invalid certificates can be ignored using the --insecure (or -k) option on the command line:
$ proxyreverse -sk 8080,8443 my.dev
- Transitioning from http to https (or vice versa) via http redirects fails.
