Tor::Proxy

The simple way to HTTP GET over Tor with ruby. See http://github.com/huned/tor_proxy

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'tor_proxy'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install tor_proxy

Usage

By default, assumes a Tor proxy server is running at localhost:9050. Tor::Proxy instances delegates to Net::HTTP::SOCKSProxy instances, so use it exactly the same way.

# returns the body of the http request
Tor::Proxy.new.get(URI.parse('https://www.torproject.org'))

Optionally, set your Tor proxy server's host and port.

host, port = 'localhost', 9050
Tor::Proxy.new(host, port).get(URI.parse('https://www.torproject.org'))

Development

Running tests

bundle install

then

bundle exec rspec spec
