A super simple reverse proxy with TLS support

How to run

In order to listen for proxy requests on all local interfaces on port 8080 and proxy them to a service running at example.com, do:

proxyboi -l http://example.com

You can also feed your TLS certificates into it:

proxyboi -l --cert mycert.pem --key mykey.key http://example.com

You can see a detailed (and pretty!) verbose log using -v:

proxyboi -l http://example.com -v

Pretty log

This is mostly a note for me on how to release this thing:

  • Make sure CHANGELOG.md is up to date.
  • cargo release --dry-run <version>
  • cargo release <version>
  • Releases will automatically be deployed by Github Actions.
  • Docker images will automatically be built by Docker Hub.
  • Update AUR package.
