Thanks @snowleopardw.

Before running the script, please make sure you have installed the pip.

Hi @Femtometer

As I mentioned in the description, I only tested on OS X.

Anyone can modify this code based on their needs.

when I run your script ./update_gfwlist.sh, I get:

Updated.

Is that because I am using python version 3.x ?

Hi, sorry for the delay, because Gist comments and mentions don't trigger notifications.

Yes, gfwlist2pac needs python 2.7.

For OS X users, if crontab does't running your script, please consider specify PATH variable in the Crontab.

thanks for the code, but it would be better if could check the version of python.
I install gfwlist2pac by hand, but when i run the code, it download the gfwlist2pac again using pip3
I changed pip to pip2 and it works

Your bash is fine.
But l'm wired of one thing. Here it is when l update latest gfwlist l found couldn't access google whether Autoproxy or Globalproxy. Something like latest gfwlist have some problem. l don't know any people encounter this problem?

@tony-haibo-zhu Just close your ShadowsockX and restart it.

The script returns:

Downloading gfwlist.
abort due to error occurred.

Is this because of an error with the gfwlist2pac install? The gfwlist2pac install returns:
The directory '/Users/xxx/Library/Caches/pip/http' or its parent directory is not owned by the current user and the cache has been disabled. Please check the permissions and owner of that directory. If executing pip with sudo, you may want sudo's -H flag.

Does this mean the installation was unsuccessful?

@fuurose you should run it like sudo -H update_gfwlist.sh

@Femtometer you can change line 48 as cd /Users/[YOUR_USER_NAME]/.ShadowsocksX || exit 1 to solve the problem

我运行脚本./update_gfwlist.sh以后显示

You can use --format=(legacy|columns)
 (or define a format=(legacy|columns)
 in your pip.conf under the [list] section) to disable this warning.\

这个脚本已经不需要了,也不维护了,请自行去下载 ShadowsocksX-NG
