Django HTTP Proxy

Simple HTTP proxy service as a Django app.

Author: Mjumbe Wawatu Ukweli, Follow me on Twitter.

Installation

Install with

$ pip install django-proxy

Overview

Forward as close to an exact copy of the request as possible along to a given url. Respond with as close to an exact copy of the resulting response as possible.

Includes a view function that can be used directly from a URL spec:

from proxy.views import proxy_view

urlpatterns = patterns(
	...
	url('proxy/(?P<url>.*)', proxy_view),
	...
)

Or from another view function:

from django.views.decorators.csrf import csrf_exempt
from proxy.views import proxy_view

@csrf_exempt
def myview(request, path):
	extra_requests_args = {...}
	remoteurl = 'http://<host_name>/' + path
	return proxy_view(request, remoteurl, extra_requests_args)
	
urlpatterns = patterns(
	...
	url('proxy/(?P<path>.*)', myview),
	...
)
