Proxy support for Tinder

April 18, 2008 code 1 min read

I got to feel the pain of being stuck behind an HTTP proxy this week while working at Xerox’s office in El Segundo, CA. It sucked. You don’t realize how much you use the internet until you can’t get to half of the sites that you use every day.

So, in an effort to sympathize with other poor souls that are stuck behind a proxy during the work day, I added proxy support to Tinder:

  c ='subdomain', :proxy => '')

I don’t actually have access to testing this, so I’d appreciate if someone behind a proxy could check out the code from git and confirm that it works, and then I will put out a new release.

Speaking of git, I’m now only pushing changes to git. The subversion repository will stay around but will not be kept up to date.
