An interactive SSL-capable intercepting HTTP proxy for penetration testers and software developers

mitmproxy ^^^^^^^^^

This repository contains the mitmproxy and pathod projects, as well as their shared networking library, netlib.

mitmproxy is an interactive, SSL-capable intercepting proxy with a console interface.

mitmdump is the command-line version of mitmproxy. Think tcpdump for HTTP.

pathoc and pathod are perverse HTTP client and server applications designed to let you craft almost any conceivable HTTP request, including ones that creatively violate the standards.

Documentation & Help

Documentation, tutorials and precompiled binaries can be found on the mitmproxy and pathod websites.

The latest documentation for mitmproxy is also available on ReadTheDocs.

To get started hacking on mitmproxy, make sure you have Python_ 2.7.x. with virtualenv_ installed (you can find installation instructions for virtualenv here_). Then do the following:

.. code-block:: text

git clone
cd mitmproxy

The dev script will create a virtualenv environment in a directory called “venv”, and install all mandatory and optional dependencies into it. The primary mitmproxy components - mitmproxy, netlib and pathod - are installed as “editable”, so any changes to the source in the repository will be reflected live in the virtualenv.

To confirm that you’re up and running, activate the virtualenv, and run the mitmproxy test suite:

.. code-block:: text

. venv/bin/activate # venv\Scripts\activate.bat on Windows

Note that the main executables for the project - mitmdump, mitmproxy, mitmweb, pathod, and pathoc - are all created within the virtualenv. After activating the virtualenv, they will be on your $PATH, and you can run them like any other command:

.. code-block:: text

mitmdump --version

For convenience, the project includes an autoenv_ file (.env_) that auto-activates the virtualenv when you cd into the mitmproxy directory.


If you’ve followed the procedure above, you already have all the development requirements installed, and you can simply run the test suite:

.. code-block:: text


Please ensure that all patches are accompanied by matching changes in the test suite. The project tries to maintain 100% test coverage.


The mitmproxy documentation is build using Sphinx_, which is installed automatically if you set up a development environment as described above. After installation, you can render the documentation like this:

.. code-block:: text

cd docs
make clean
make html
make livehtml

The last command invokes sphinx-autobuild_, which watches the Sphinx directory and rebuilds the documentation when a change is detected.
