This utility starts a Plack based proxy server that forwards requests to one URL. It can create a throw-away SSL certificate and run over https, which makes it easy to provide encrypted endpoints for local development if your frontend has to run on https.


The following options are available:


Generate a new temporary SSL certificate and run over https instead of http. Does not change the default port.

--port PORT

Start the HTTP server on a specific PORT. Default is 3080.


Print information about the script usage and its options.


Print the entire man page for the command.
