Proxy modes - X, P, live¶
X-proxy (testing, JS bugs, JS fix domains , CORS)¶
The X-proxy is great for testing. You can spot content that does not get picked up by default, and make your configurations to your project, and check for success.
There are a couple of situations, when the X-proxy comes in handy:
- Testing regular expressions, for example on e-commerce sites.
- Just browsing through a site, for evaluation purposes.
An example X-proxy URL:
The X-proxy can be accessed from the pages list under Content (or Discovery) by clicking on the Preview button in the hover toolbar, while holding down the Ctrl/Cmd button, or you can just replace the -p for a -x in the normal preview’s URL for the same effect.
P - Preview¶
The standard proxy mode to view the translated website before publishing. However, the preview can be used for a couple of other things:
- Cookie header extraction to get behind logins
- Visiting pages manually, to ingest content
An example Preview-proxy URL:
C - Channel¶
Live serving mode¶
After publishing the website, the proxy serves content on the chosen domain.
