Advanced usage

Disabling HTTPS

You may pass the --disable-https flag to use unencrypted HTTP instead of HTTPS for a given instance. This is inherently insecure and should be used only when connecting to local development instances.

toot login --disable-https --instance localhost:8080

Using proxies

You can configure proxies by setting the HTTPS_PROXY or HTTP_PROXY environment variables. This will cause all http(s) requests to be proxied through the specified server.

For example:

export HTTPS_PROXY=""
toot login --instance

NB: This feature is provided by requests and setting the environment variable will affect other programs using this library.

This environment can be set for a single call to toot by prefixing the command with the environment variable:

HTTPS_PROXY="" toot login --instance
