Suggestion: Python urllib3 SOCKS proxy support

Post by biolizard89 » Fri Aug 07, 2015 1:32 am

I'm leaning toward putting $100 of FSM funds toward a bounty for SOCKS proxy support in Python's urllib3. This would be useful for NMControl. See some discussion at https://github.com/namecoin/nmcontrol/pull/58 . Any objections?

Yeah, that would be useful and I think this issue well deserves the bounty. But it may easily take two years or more to get it in and established. In the meantime we could use this stable, clean to integrate and well maintained module: https://github.com/Anorov/PySocks

As in this NMControl version I have been playing with: https://github.com/phelixnmc/nmcontrol/tree/tor (Only really makes sense with API server support so I did not push it previously; not sure the port auto detection in torgate.py works on all systems; needs pip install pysocks)

Looks like they implement it via Anorov's PySocks... https://github.com/shazow/urllib3/issues/690

Yep. Hopefully the bounty will incentivize them to get the tests working so it can be merged.
