Re: Cloudflare workers - here's how to set it up:

CloudFront have released an 'official' CORS proxy here

Raw code here

You just need to copy and paste that into a new worker.

Note that by default this restricts the origin to be coming from the CloudFront worker itself - see here

If you change line 13 to be:

 response.headers.set('Access-Control-Allow-Origin', '*')

It then works from a different origin e.g. an observablehq notebook or your personal website.

A specific working example (with url of worker changed) could be :

f=  fetch("https://red-wave-c10f.myworkerpath.workers.dev/corsproxy/?apiurl=https://api.worldbank.org/countries/all/indicators/TX.VAL.MRCH.CD.WT?date=2014%3A2014%26format=json%26per_page=1000"").then(function(d) {return d.json()})

Thanks

@RobinL , Just wanted to ask, do I need to change something else in the code, to get this working, because it's giving "CORS header ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ missing" even after changin to ('Access-Control-Allow-Origin', '*') thing.
I just want to setup an open cors proxy

Update:
ok, I get it, line no 3 , was causing the problem for me:

const apiurl = url.searchParams.get('apiurl')

Lets say I use
https://www.google.com/search?&q=marine
it will be stripped to https://www.google.com/search and that was causing the problem.

I will see how to fix this

Update2:
I changed line no 3 to const apiurl = unescape(unescape(url.search.substr(8))); and that seems to work fine
I referred : https://github.com/Zibri/cloudflare-cors-anywhere/blob/2f5bae4c00bac89018e2ae7edc860ecba2a2223b/index.js#L48

Thanks, that's great. I had been using the workaround of manual unescaping. Your solution is much better

Today i have experiment with raw tcp + websocket as a proxy

The problem with cors, browsers and proxies are that they put too much restriction on you and you can't do everything you want to do

here is what i have done so far: https://codesandbox.io/s/late-moon-5mck1

it's basically a reimplementation of fetch with custom redirect mode can send and read all response forbidden headers and support any http method you want

Would be happy to develop this further if someone else knows how someone can reimplement http2, QUIC, TLS 1.3 in the browser using web crypto - that is just beyond my knowledge.

cloudflare has request limit of 100,000, per day, we can increase that to 5 million per day, by fetching multiple requests at the same time.
You can refer the code here:

@fawazahmed0 Thank you for sharing a special code. Works for all pages except Google: is there a solution?
var arr = ["https://www.google.com/search?q=test"] fetch('https://Test-Name.username.workers.dev',{ method: 'POST', body: JSON.stringify(arr) }) .then(response => response.text()) .then(data => console.log(data))

Can you develop the code to do that.
and avoid Same-origin policy problems. Like : https://allorigins.win/

For sites like Google, you can use cors-anywhere by Rob Wu, here is the link to my fork: Fork

You just have to click on Deploy to Heroku Button

@softmarshmallow Will do!

Do you know if they allow sending/reading headers in some other form other than directly onto the request headers?
Browsers blocks some request headers from being sent & read

Another issue that one of my private CORS proxy is solving is the ability to set/remove certain headers on the request/response

new Headers({
   // send a cookie that is forbidden otherwise
  'x-cors-set-request-headers': 'cookie: value',

  // pretend that i'm making a request from another origin
  'x-cors-set-request-headers': 'origin: example.com',

  // Remove restriction that don't allow page to work in a iframe
  'x-cors-delete-response-headers': 'csp', 
  'x-cors-delete-response-headers': 'X-Frame-Options',

  // override text/plain so it can render properly
  'x-cors-set-response-headers': "content-type: text/html"
})

i know that some REST Apis with CORS enabled already exist but they really limit it to there own domain by checking if
http://example.com is allowed to make request to http://api.example.com by looking at the origin header so there is no way to fake that I'm making a request from http://example.com if i'm not allowed to set a forbidden header origin

and most of the shared repo here for cloudflare workers are not working anymore but glad I found all origins, it saved me a lot of time. Cloudflare-cors-anywhere doens't work with cloudflare workers that returns a json body due to 403 forbidden headers (when I do the fetch inside the worker panel it works fine) but it works on graphql queries though from my use case

Can you add https://corsproxy.io? It's made by my company and many other companies use it to develop javascript applications. It's made in Germany, 100% gdpr compliant and runs on a global CDN. We currently serve 2.5 Mio requests per day :)

Looks promising, it would be really nice if it has query options to modify the proxy request like adding or removing headers. Great work!

@vsn530 Assuming Marius was being 100% honest (I don't doubt he was), the claim is thei're GDPR compliant and have no logs. (which if they're based in Germany, violating is a hefty fine!), but anyway you shouldn't be sending highly confidential data/credentials through a free proxy you don't own.

To avoid that you should just setup your own server. The corsproxy.io just for things that don't contain important data and not worth to create a server for them.

By the way I'm still waiting for their request headers modify feature ;D
