connect-http-please

Build status

Follows HTTPS redirects for you, seamlessly.

Idea

Don't want to enter HTTPS while in development?
Don't want to fiddle around self-signed certificates for your HTTPS proxy?

Add connect-http-please to your middleware chain and it will follow HTTPS redirects for you.

Usage

httplease = require 'connect-http-please'

(...)

middlewares = [
    httplease()
    myproxy( { to: 'somesite.com' } )
  ]
  
(...)

server.listen(80)

Now, imagine your browser issues a request to localhost/secure.
This gets proxied to somesite.com/secure.
However, somesite.com/secure won't accept HTTP: instead, it sends a

301 - location: https://somesite.com/secure

Then, connect-http-please detects that this is

  • a redirect (301/302) to
  • to the exact same URI
  • changing to HTTPS protocol

So, it saves your browser the trouble, fetches the content via HTTPS and returns your original request.
Your browser never knew he had to spoke HTTPS.

DISCLAIMER

This middleware is meant as a facilitator for DEVELOPMENT PURPOSES.
Do not use it in production or in critical environments.
Even though this middleware makes the requests via https, there's no guarantee of safety between your browser and this proxy.

You have been warned.
