angel_proxy 2.1.2

proxy #

Pub build status

Angel middleware to forward requests to another server (i.e. webdev serve). Also supports WebSockets.

import 'package:angel_proxy/angel_proxy.dart';
import 'package:http/http.dart' as http;

main() async {
  // ...
  var client = http.Client();
  // Forward requests instead of serving statically
  var proxy1 = Proxy(client, Uri.parse('http://localhost:3000'));
  // handle all methods (GET, POST, ...)

You can also restrict the proxy to serving only from a specific root:

Proxy(client, baseUrl, publicPath: '/remote');

Also, you can map requests to a root path on the remote server:

Proxy(client, baseUrl.replace(path: '/path'));

Request bodies will be forwarded as well, if they are not empty. This allows things like POST requests to function.

For a request body to be forwarded, the body must not have already been parsed.

2.1.2 #

  • Apply lints.

2.1.1 #

  • Update for framework@2.0.0-alpha.15

2.1.0 #

  • Use Uri instead of archaic host, port, and mapTo. Also cleaner + safer + easier.
  • Enable WebSocket proxying.

2.0.0 #

  • Updates for Angel 2. Big thanks to @denkuy!
  • Use package:path for better path resolution.

1.1.1 #

  • Removed reference to io; now works with HTTP/2. Thanks to @daniel-v!
