Document for plugin writers the usefullness of mitmproxy
The mitmproxy are extremely useful for debugging how services work which normally talk using TLS. Say you want to debug a CLI talking to it's server so that you can reverse engineer how Pulp needs to behave as either the client or server. For example debugging between the ansible-galaxy CLI and galaxy.ansible.com (the server side). You could use mitmproxy in the middle like:
ansible-galaxy CLI <--> mitmproxy <--> ansible.galaxy.com.
You can enable this easily if the CLI has any sort of "proxy config".
Setup mitmproxy and run it¶
pip install mitmproxy mitmweb -v -v -v --listen-port 8088 --web-port 8089 -k
Configure the CLI to talk "through" mitmproxy and to ignore that it doesn't have a trusted cert¶
export ANSIBLE_GALAXY_IGNORE=true export ANSIBLE_CONFIG=/home/vagrant/devel/automation_hub.cfg export HTTPS_PROXY=localhost:8088
Make CLI requests and read all requests and responses from the mitmproxy UI.
