You can use a configuration file instead of command line arguments.

Create a config file /etc/shadowsocks.json. Example:

{
    "server":"my_server_ip",
    "server_port":8388,
    "local_address": "127.0.0.1",
    "local_port":1080,
    "password":"mypassword",
    "timeout":300,
    "method":"aes-256-cfb",
    "fast_open": false
}

Explanation of the fields:

Name Explanation

local_port local port
password password used for encryption
timeout in seconds
method default: "aes-256-cfb", see Encryption
