Simple API proxy that uses Flask/requests/gunicorn.

Project description

Simple API proxy that uses Flask/requests/gunicorn.

Use cases

  • Centralize API requests - Sometimes only a specific IP can access APIs. Run Proxapy on that machine and access the API from everywhere.
  • Implement custom pre/post operation on API request/response - Fork the project, add routes and implement your changes. Common changes include content filtering, add authentication key header not known by the end user.

Usage

  1. Make sure you have virtualenv
  2. make run
  3. Visit http://<proxyhost>:<proxyport>/<API> to access http://<API>

By default <proxyhost> is bound to 0.0.0.0 and <proxyport> to 5000, so for example you could run Proxapy and then visit: http://localhost:5000/api.left-pad.io/?str=proxied&len=20
