With pip:

$ pip install wsgi_proxy

Install optionnal backends:

$ pip install requests restkit urllib3


Create a proxy:

>>> from wsgi_proxy import HostProxy
>>> proxy = HostProxy(application_url)

Then use it. Here is an example with WebOb but you can use it like a classic WSGI application:

>>> from webob import Request
>>> req = Request.blank('/form.html')
>>> resp = req.get_response(proxy)
>>> print(resp.text)

The Proxy application accept some keyword arguments. Those arguments are passed to requests during the process. By default allow_redirects and verify are set to False but you can change the behavior:

>>> proxy = HostProxy(application_url, verify=True, allow_redirects=True,
...                   max_redirects=10)
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
