Proxy connector for aiohttp

Project description


Build Status Coverage Status PyPI version Downloads

The aiohttp-socks package provides a proxy connector for aiohttp. Supports SOCKS4(a), SOCKS5, HTTP (tunneling) as well as Proxy chains. It uses python-socks for core proxy functionality.


  • Python >= 3.6
  • aiohttp >= 2.3.2
  • python-socks[asyncio] >= 1.0.1


pip install aiohttp_socks


aiohttp usage:

import aiohttp
from aiohttp_socks import ProxyType, ProxyConnector, ChainProxyConnector

async def fetch(url):
    connector = ProxyConnector.from_url('socks5://user:password@')

    ### or use ProxyConnector constructor
    # connector = ProxyConnector(
    #     proxy_type=ProxyType.SOCKS5,
    #     host='',
    #     port=1080,
    #     username='user',
    #     password='password',
    #     rdns=True
    # )

    ### proxy chaining (since ver 0.3.3)
    # connector = ChainProxyConnector.from_urls([
    #     'socks5://user:password@',
    #     'socks4://',
    #     'http://user:password@',
    # ])
    async with aiohttp.ClientSession(connector=connector) as session:
        async with session.get(url) as response:
            return await response.text()

aiohttp-socks also provides open_connection and create_connection functions:

from aiohttp_socks import open_connection

async def fetch():
    reader, writer = await open_connection(
    request = (b"GET /ip HTTP/1.1\r\n"
               b"Connection: close\r\n\r\n")

    return await

Why yet another SOCKS connector for aiohttp

Unlike aiosocksy, aiohttp_socks has only single point of integration with aiohttp. This makes it easier to maintain compatibility with new aiohttp versions.
