Proxy checker in Python

Project description

Proxy Checker (Python)


A proxy checker in Python using PycURL, a Python interface to libcurl.


The proxy checker takes a proxy as input and uses it to send a request to a proxy judge (a website that outputs the information that was sent to it). If the request succeeds, the proxy checker will use the information it receives from the proxy judge to determine the proxy's:

  • Country
  • Protocol
  • Anonymity
  • Speed


pip install proxy-checker


from proxy_checker import ProxyChecker

checker = ProxyChecker()
  "country": "United States",
  "country_code": "US",
  "protocols": ["socks4", "socks5"],
  "anonymity": "Elite",
  "timeout": 1649


Name Type Default Description
proxy str The proxy to test
check_country bool True If true, the proxy's country will be looked up
check_address bool False If true, the proxy's remote address will looked up
user str None The proxy's username
password str None The proxy's password
