[RELEASE] PolipoStatusBar NEO for MAC OSX
Polipo is a small and very efficient proxy cache for personal use. It is mainly intended to accelerate browsing by caching everything possible.
Please check the site for an in depth explanation of what Polipo is.
I, as you, searched the internet to find a “no frills” Polipo client for OSX and finally found (the sadly quite outdated) PolipoStatusBar from here.
The software was from 2008 and Polipo binary was very outdated, so I downloaded the sources, adapted them to the latest version of OSX (10.9), downloaded the latest Polipo sources from Github (1.1.1/08-2014 at the time of writing), compiled for speed & efficiency and released it here at PreCog.me
I have it running in my MBP 13″ OSX 10.9.4 without any forseable issues (after I corrected a couple of glitches).
You should have it up and running in less than 2 minutes as it is a simple app; unzip, drop it in your apps folder & double click.
One thing you will have to do is go to your network properties and add the HTTP proxy “127.0.0.1” and port “8123” and that’s it! 🙂
