ToggleProxy

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.

Download

You can download a pre-built version from the Releases page.

Prerequisites

  • PyObjC: this should be already installed on your Mac, possible after installing XCode first;
  • py2app

Build

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.

Troubleshooting

If you run into problems, first try to find out what the reason is. Run this from the same directory as setup.py:

./dist/ToggleProxy.app/Contents/MacOS/ToggleProxy

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!
