A HTTP Proxy in Python for Google AppEngine

Labnol’s AppEngine Proxy is useful for viewing other pages requested via Google AppEngine, however, it does change the HTML, and doesn’t handle POST data. This is a code example in Google AppEngine Python showing how to implement a HTTP proxy in a similar way to Labnol.

from google.appengine.ext import webapp
from google.appengine.ext.webapp import util

import urllib2
import urllib
import re
import array
import urllib2

class MainHandler(webapp.RequestHandler):
	def get(self):	
		#self.response.out.write('[GET] The URL Requested was ' + self.request.query_string)
		response = urllib2.open(self.request.query_string)
		html = response.read()

	def post(self):	
		#self.response.out.write('[POST] The URL Requested was ' + self.request.query_string + "
") args = self.request.arguments() strPostdata = "" for arg in args: strPostdata = strPostdata + arg + "=" + self.request.get(arg) + "&" #self.response.out.write("[POST] The data was:" + strPostdata) request = urllib2.Request(self.request.query_string) request.add_data(str(strPostdata)) response = urllib2.urlopen(request) html = response.read() self.response.out.write(unicode(html,"latin1")) def main(): application = webapp.WSGIApplication([('/', MainHandler)], debug=True) util.run_wsgi_app(application) if __name__ == '__main__': main()
