 */
proxyServer.proxy([
    // common config
    {
        // origin host + port
        from: 'localhost:9000',
        // forward host + port
        to: '192.168.1.1:8088',
        // match forward action rule
        // `"/"` means forward match all actions, 
        // `!/public` means match local static forward match `/public.*`
        route: ['/', '!/public']
    }
]);

Set Headers

proxyServer.proxy([
    {
        from: 'localhost:9000',
        to: 'www.google.com',
        https: true,
        headers: {
            req: {origin: 'www.google.com', referer: 'www.google.com'},
            res: {'access-control-allow-origin': 'https://www.google.com', 'access-control-allow-credentials': true}
        }
    }
]);

proxyServer.proxy([
    {
        from: 'localhost:9000',
        to: 'www.google.com',
        https: true
    }
]);
// or
proxyServer.proxy([
    {
        from: 'localhost:9000',
        to: 'https://www.google.com'
    }
]);

Forward to various host on matching the path action

proxyServer.proxy([
    {
        from: 'localhost:9000',
        to: 'www.google.com',
        route: [
            {
                action: '/switer',
                forward: 'https://github.com',
                headers: {
                    req: {origin: 'https://github.com'}
                }
            },
            {
                action: '/imper',
                forward: 'https://switer.github.io',
                headers: {
                    req: {origin: 'https://github.io'}
                }
            },
            '!/public'
