Turn any Gunicorn application into a Tor Onion Service
Turn any Gunicorn server into a Tor Onion Service
It's available on PyPI! Just use pip to install
$ pip install gunicorn-torify
You must have Tor installed to use gunicorn-torify. This might look like
$ pacman -S tor # Arch $ apt install tor # Debian/Ubuntu $ apk add tor # Alpine
Just add these imports to your Gunicorn config file (or create some python file such as
./gunicorn-conf.py with the line):
from gunicorn_torify import on_starting, on_exit
When starting Gunicorn, be sure to include the
--config ./gunicorn-conf.py flag.
By default, the Onion Service will store its secret keys in
To override this you can set the
TOR_SERVICE_DIR environment variable before running for the first time.
According to the tor docs this directory contains private keys and should be treated carefully.
If deploying in Docker, it's important to persist this directory (otherwise your onion address could change) either with a named volume or a mapped directory. An example deployment could be done with
$ docker volume create my-onion-service $ docker run -v my-onion-service:/app/secrets/tor afiorillo/gunicorn-torify:flask
$ pyenv virtualenv 3.8.1 gunicorn-torify-3.8 $ pyenv activate gunicorn-torify-3.8 $ pip install -r requirements_dev.txt
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
