Project (by zoninoz):
ZigzagProxy (zproxy) is a CLI bash script, with which you can connect programs from bash using proxy (transparent, anonymous or elite/highly-anonymous, selected according to the type required by the user).
Zproxy extracts proxies from http://ip-adress.com/proxy_list/, analyzes them and checks whether they work, selecting those that allow a download speed higher than a default value
- Download the installation script from:
- Give users the right to execute the script:
chmod a+x install_zproxy.sh
- Start the automatic installation:
Usage (the order of the arguments is not important):
[source |.] zproxy [options] [commands | programs]
You can activate/deactivate a proxy for all programs/commands started from the same terminal: 'source' (abbreviated with a dot, must always be inserted BEFORE the command) 'globalizes' the variable 'http_proxy', making it active for all commands/programs started from the terminal after ZigzagProxy.

--ip Current IP address
-u --update Update ZigzagProxy
-d --disable Disable the proxy
-t --transparent Select the type of automatic
-a --anonymous proxy to activate:
-e --elite Transparent, Anonymous, Elite
-p PROXY, -pPROXY [-p|--proxy=] allows to activate

zproxy -ta chromium
- testing with Chromium:

- activate a proxy Transparent, Anonymous or Elite for all commands, scripts and programs started from the same terminal, after zproxy:
source zproxy -tae
- disable proxy and update zproxy:
