NAME

Plack::Middleware::Proxy::Requests - Forward proxy server

SYNOPSIS

# In app.psgi
use Plack::Builder;
use Plack::App::Proxy;

builder {
    enable "Proxy::Connect";
    enable "Proxy::AddVia";
    enable "Proxy::Requests";
    Plack::App::Proxy->new->to_app;
};

# From shell
plackup -s Twiggy -E Proxy -e 'enable q{AccessLog}' app.psgi

# or
twiggy -MPlack::App::Proxy \
       -e 'enable q{AccessLog}; enable q{Proxy::Connect}; \
           enable q{Proxy::AddVia}; enable q{Proxy::Requests}; \
           Plack::App::Proxy->new->to_app'

DESCRIPTION

This module handles HTTP requests as a forward proxy server.

Its job is to set a plack.proxy.url environment variable based on REQUEST_URI variable.

The HTTP responses from the Internet might be invalid. In that case it is required to run the server without Plack::Middleware::Lint module. This module is started by default and disabled if -E or --no-default-middleware option is used when starting plackup script. Note that this disable also Plack::Middleware::AccessLog so it have to be enabled explicitly if needed.

The default server Plack::Server::PSGI alias Standalone can hang up on stalled connection. It is better to run proxy server with Starlet, Starman or Twiggy.
