Quick HTTPS forward/reverse proxy for your HTTP web service - httpsproxy2http

When your site is running with HTTPS-enabled, and tried to embed an URL or perform an API call towards external URL which is HTTP (not HTTPS), you will see the error in below:

Mixed Content: The page at 'https://your-frontend.com/' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure resource 'http://your-webservice-api.com/v2/some/endpoint?param=1'.

This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.

It's mean that your API call or request is somehow blocked by the browser due to https://your-frontend.com/ was loaded using HTTPS-enabled but http://your-webservice-api.com is not. Trying to perform a call to a HTTP website from a webpage loaded via HTTPS is not allowed by browser, because it is insecure.


This simple service will help you to resolve that error. Simply change your URL from:

http://your-webservice-api.com/v2/some/endpoint?param=1

To:

https://httpsproxy2http.novalagung.com/your-webservice-api.com/v2/some/endpoint?param=1


In summary, use the https://httpsproxy2http.novalagung.com as the host of your destination URL, and put your actual URL as path next to it.

All resources like request headers, request body, query strings, cookies, etc; all of them will also be proxified. So it's safe to use httpsproxy2http on RESTful operations.
