Quick node.js HTTP proxy on Heroku

Spin up a quick proxy on Heroku. Make sure you have heroku and git on your computer:

  1. Download these files into a directory
  2. Change '' to your target domain index.js
  3. $ git init
  4. $ git add .
  5. $ git commit -m "And away we go..."
  6. $ heroku create
  7. $ git push heroku master
  8. $ heroku ps:scale web=1
  9. $ heroku open

If you have trouble with Heroku, consult their node.js getting started guide.

var httpProxy = require('http-proxy');
httpProxy.createServer(80, '').listen(process.env.PORT || 8000);
