Introduction

Use this package if you want to make use of freely available HTTP proxy servers online.

Installation

npm install --save proxies

Usage

var proxies = require('proxies');
var request = require('request');

proxies(function(aRandomProxyUrl) {
  request.get({url: "http://www.google.com", proxy: aRandomProxyUrl}, function(error, response, body) {
    // ...
  });
});

Notes

The list of proxies is obtained from www.proxy-list.org. All proxies are validated before being made available for use. When the function is first called it will load the list of proxies, and delay calling back with a proxy until at least 30 proxies are validated. I proxy is deemed invalid if no response is received within 8 seconds. Each time the function is called a random proxy is returned.
