Installing mitmproxy26 Aug 2013
I spend the last hour trying to install mitmproxy. This is supposed to be a commandline proxy to intercept, read, edit and replay HTTP(S) requests. I say "supposed" because I haven't had the chance to try it so far as I was blocked on a compilation error.
According to the official
documentation, installing mitmproxy
should be as easy as
pip install mitmproxy. Being new to using
first had to install it (
sudo apt-get install python-pip) and figure out
that one need to install stuff with
sudo pip install mitmproxy resulted in charming compilation errors in my
case. Something along the lines of :
src/lxml/lxml.etree.c:16:20: fatal error: Python.h: No such file or directory
After a bit of googling, I understood that the issue was some missing headers
on my part. After running
sudo apt-get install python-dev I was good to run
sudo pip install mitmproxy again.
Next step will be to configure the beast and learn how to use it.
