UNIX domain path proxy for Chromium's remote debugging tools

Project description

remote_debugging_path_chromium is a wrapper script for chromium that allows you to connect to the chromium debugger over a UNIX domain socket. This is useful if you don’t want to expose your debugger socket over localhost (which might be a security concern). For additional security it also provides whitelist functionality to only allow certain debugger methods.


Easiest way is to install from PyPI via pip3:

$ pip3 install remote_debugging_path_chromium


Use it the same way you would use chromium except it provides two extra options:

  • –remote-debugging-path=PATH This specifies the path on which you want the chromium remote debugger to listen.
  • –remote-debugging-allow=METHOD This turns on whitelist functionality, limiting which methods are allowed to be invoked through this interface. You can specify this multiple times.

Assuming your pip install location is on your PATH, you can invoke it like you would invoke chromium.

$ remote_debugging_path_chromium
