gopher-proxy allows to proxy gopher over HTTP, which is mainly useful for HTTP-ifying a specific gopher space.

A simple invocation looks like this:

gopher-proxy --host example.org --http-port 8080

In this particular example gopher-proxy does the following things:

Readme for gopher-proxy

Readme for gopher-proxy-0.1.1.1

gopher-proxy

gopher-proxy is a tiny wai application running on top of warp. It acts as a gopher-over-http proxy for a specific server, e. g. to http-ify a gopher space.

Usage

Example usage:

gopher-proxy --host foo.org --http-port 8080

In this particular example, gopher-proxy would proxy the foo.org gopher server and bind its http service on 127.0.0.1:8080 (to be proxied to by another web server like nginx).

These are all optional flags which allow to change default behavior:

  • --port: The port of the gopher server, defaults to 70
  • --css-url: Use some specific css file instead of the default one.
  • --css-url: The http path of the css file, defaults to /gopher-proxy.css (should be changed, if your gopher server has a file with the same name
  • --base-url: The path of the directory which will appear as root directory of gopher-proxy to the user, defaults to /. Should be changed if you configured your proxying web server to expose gopher-proxy as, say /gopher-space/.
  • --listen-public: If this flag is set, gopher-proxy will accept connections on its public IP address(es).
  • --default-mime-type: Mime type to use if spacecookie can't guess it, defaults to "application/octet-stream"
  • --timeout: connection timeout in milliseconds, defaults to 10 seconds.
  • --server-name: The server name of the server to proxy, defaults to the host name. This value is used to detect wether a menu item is pointing to another gopher server than the proxied one. This is particularly useful, if you use e. g. 127.0.0.1 instead of the public host name.
  • --title: Sets the first part of the HTML title-tag, defaults to gopher-proxy.

Things to keep in mind

  • Your gopher server must send UTF-8-encoded gopher responses
  • gopher-proxy might misinterpret certain content, because of the context-sensitive nature of gopher
  • gopher-proxy does not support Gopher+
