Poxy is a web application that captures HTTP requests to let you do fun stuff with them.
Fun things like proxying, forwarding, emailing and some sort of processing (soon!).
In order to use it first you'll need to create an account into the site.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
$ gem install poxy_client
API Blueprint and Documentation
There are a few different ways to use the client.
The distribution includes an executable file that you can use. It requires a .config file.
Or, you can implement your own client suited to your particular needs. Take a look at the executable file, or check the code documentation.
In the /lib folder of the distribution, there's a file named poxyd.rb which you can run from the commandline.
It requires a mandatory config file (included in the distribution you'll find a sample one, here poxy.conf.
You can use that as a start (it points to a test endpoint in the poxy api).
Optionally, you can pass a -d parameter, and the executable will run as a daemon.
$ ruby poxyd.rb -c poxy.conf -d
Being poxy.conf a config file with your own API key.
The code for PoxyClient it's pretty straightforward.
The PoxyClient#perform method encapsulates the 3 operations the client performs in order to retrieve, process and repeat a request.
