@patik /.bashrc
Last active Nov 28, 2018

What would you like to do?
Bash configure proxy for corporate network
# configure proxy for git while on corporate network
# From
function proxy_on(){
# are existing Windows system-level environment variables
# are existing Windows current user-level environment variables (your user)
# environment variables are UPPERCASE even in git bash
export NO_PROXY="localhost,,$USERDNSDOMAIN"
# Update git and npm to use the proxy
git config --global http.proxy $HTTP_PROXY
git config --system http.sslcainfo /bin/curl-ca-bundle.crt
git config --global http.sslcainfo /bin/curl-ca-bundle.crt
# npm config set proxy $HTTP_PROXY
# npm config set https-proxy $HTTP_PROXY
# npm config set strict-ssl false
# npm config set registry ""
# optional for debugging
# optional Self Signed SSL certs and
# internal CA certificate in an corporate environment
env | grep -e _PROXY -e GIT_ | sort
# echo -e "\nProxy-related environment variables set."
# clear
# Enable proxy settings immediately
# Disable proxy settings
function proxy_off(){
variables=( \
for i in "${variables[@]}"
unset $i
env | grep -e _PROXY -e GIT_ | sort
echo -e "\nProxy-related environment variables removed."

This will automatically set the proxy variables when you launch a bash shell. At any time you can type proxy_off to disable them.

You may need to hardcode your password, proxy server, and proxy port on line 11. Just replace each $VAR_NAME with the actual value.

Put this file in your home directory. Make sure the file is called .bashrc with nothing before the dot — if you're on Windows, try saving it from a decent text editor like Sublime Text or Notepad++ as Explorer will not let you name a file in this way.

Where does /bin/curl-ca-bundle.crt come from? I didn't find it in my Mac, Can someone give me a point? Thanks!

But .bashrc will not be called by default for login shells of macos rite, so how can this be enforced to load when each time the shell is loaded?

It seems the curl uses the http_proxy with lower case environment variable, maybe that should be included.
