Proxy supportΒΆ

sttp library by default checks for your System proxy properties (docs):

Following settings are checked:

  1. socksProxyHost and socksProxyPort (default: 1080)
  2. http.proxyHost and http.proxyPort (default: 80)

Settings are loaded in given order and the first existing value is being used.

Otherwise, proxy values can be specified manually when creating a backend:

import com.softwaremill.sttp._

implicit val backend = HttpURLConnectionBackend(
  options = SttpBackendOptions.httpProxy("", 8080))

  .send() // uses the proxy
