How can I use an http proxy with node js http Client

0 votes
I want to make an outgoing HTTP call from node.js, using the standard http.Client. But I cannot reach the remote server directly from my network and need to go through a proxy.

How do I tell node.js to use the proxy?

Hello @kartik,

You can use request, I just found it's unbelievably easy to use proxy on node.js, just with one external "proxy" parameter, even more it supports HTTPS through a http proxy.

var request = require('request');

request({
  'url':'https://anysite.you.want/sub/sub',
  'method': "GET",
  'proxy':'http://yourproxy:8087'
},function (error, response, body) {
  if (!error && response.statusCode == 200) {
    console.log(body);
  }
})

Hope it helps!!
