ToggleProxy is a PyObjC-based application for Mac OS X to quickly enable and disable the different types of proxy (HTTP, HTTPS, SOCKS) for the currently active networking interface.
Clicking the icon (an upward arrow, shown in the Mac OS X menu bar) presents a menu where the state of each type of proxy can be toggled.
NB: this is not a proxy manager, you have to configure proxies from Mac OS X Network preferences first before this app makes any sense.
You can download a pre-built version from the Releases page.
Build the application from Terminal like so:
python setup.py py2app
This builds the application as
dist/ToggleProxy.app. You can run it from
there, or move it to somewhere more appropriate first.
If you run into problems, first try to find out what the reason is. Run
this from the same directory as
This should output any errors to stdout, so you might get a clue as to why it’s not working. If it warrants an issue report, you’re welcome!
