Proxie: HTTP debugging proxy App Reviews

13 add

Works great, does what it says!

The only thing I really wish it did was enable proxying in network settings when the app launches (or when proxying is enabled inside the app), and then put the proxy settings back to their original values when the app closes (or proxying is disabled inside the app).

Recomended

Works well. I was able to view SSL requests.

Fantastic

Cheap, good UI and simple. I love it

Beautiful. Needs better JSON support

The UI is beautiful, modern, and clean. It needs pretty printing of JSON requests. Trying to decipher a big blob of minified text is painful. The other app I used does that, and while being a far worse app, this one feature made it worthwhile.

Didn’t fulfill my expectation

I bought this one since CharlesProxy costs $50 and this $7. But it sweats on HTTPS connection and not consistent!

Very good app!

I first got a bit nervous till I found the “Trust Cellis CA on this Mac” option under Help menu. You should make this somehow a bit more obvious and explain somewhere (on web site, for example) how to grab this certificate and install it onto iOS Simulator, for example… Far not everybody knows how to do it. I loved app’s simplisity and slick design. I tried various apps (Charles, Burp) - those are pretty hard to use for majority of cases, while Cellist does everything that most developers will ever need: filtering and request/response visualization in various formats (JSON, Web, Imagery). What I found extremely useful was ability to drag’n’drop response as a file! I would yet ask for XML visualization - it would be pretty handy either. A few small feature requests - * JSON “Expand/Collapse all” button * ability to sort in a way that most recent requests stay on top (vs being added into the end of the list) * request timestamps would be usefull to see somewhere. * when your app posts ton of requests - additional highlighting mechanism would be a really cool feature, that would allow to mark similar requests (by full URL, for example) with some color. * ability to change background color for image viewer Thanks for the great app!

The best http debugging proxy for mac

tl;dr... Simply the best I have found. The developer of this application has refined and refined and refined until he has literally produced the essential http debugging app for OSX. Easily on par with fiddler2 for windows, this is my goto application when I need to inspect and debug http traffic. I had a couple of feature suggestions and the developer, Chi Wang, took them and ran with them. I am thrilled that the app does everything that I need and does it extremely well.

This app does not work. Use Wireshark instead.

I bought this app to sniff http/https traffic on my development machine. I choose this because I thought it would be easy to set up and I will get result in 5 min. The product does not perform as I expected. I followed the instruction to set up the proxy setting, this was easy. However it could not capture traffic from my tomcat server which is running on my localhost. When my code running on the tomcat server make http traffic, it did NOT capture any traffic here. Cellist manages to capture trafic from my browser when I go to sites like goolge and yahoo, but I am not interested in this traffic. However when I generate traffic to my localhost tomcat server like https://localhost:8443/myapp it could NOT capture this traffic. The documentation is very lacking and does not have any troubleshooting tips or guide to help with this regard what so ever. I would give NEGATIVE star if I can because: 1. It does not perform as advertise 2. Lacking in documentation and support.

Works great

Works like a charm, I was up and running, inspecting HTTP and HTTPS traffic on both OS X and from my iPad within ten minutes. Well worth the money compared to the alternatives.

Great App - Please add XML Filter

This app works great, people who don’t undestand how to setup a proxy on thier iOS device just post dumb reviews. As for WireShark it does not allow capture of iOS data if your router does not support frame capture (most new ac routers on non a/b/g bands). With a proxy solution this is not a issue. So this app takes a bit of setup if you use DHCP for your mac (so set it to static ip for your Mac to help). Only drawback is it does not show XML nicley in the results data, please add that. Very helpful if doing SOAP based calls. Thanks for the great app.

There is no app support

The app doesnt work and there’s no app support available. I want my money back! Block the seller please.

Great app

Can’t beat it for the price.

Works well. Basic interface.

This is a bit primitive but it does what it says on the tin. Easy to setup proxy.

Best debugging proxy on Mac so far

On Windows I was using Fiddler and was pretty happy about it. Having moved to Mac I started to look for a native replacement, but was surprised not to find one. Then I tried Charles, and it is okay-is, but as Java-based app it takes a lot of space for such an app and my god it’s slow (and expensive). But then I discovered Proxie (actually by name Cellist) and that’s the one I was looking for. Native, small, fast, very nice looking, and for a fair price, doing its job well (including HTTPS packets inspection).

Could be great...

But I’ve had problems with it crashing pretty frequently causing debugging sessions to be cumbersome. Would love to see this become more stable.

Crashing lately

Getting lots of crashes when sniffing proxy

Doesn't work in Sierra

This app used to be great, now it's competely useless.

HTTP works, HTTPS Too, But Crash City

Cellist takes a tad bit of work to get going. It works so just keep plugging at your settings. If you have any issues with your Keychain files, you can have a problem with HTTPS with Cellist. Use Keychain First Aid to potentially fix. After some repair to my system, Cellist is now working nicely, sniffing both HTTP and HTTPS. I set up a special “Location” under “Network” in the Settings app called “Cellist” and set the proxy settings there. When I need Cellist to capture data, I switch to that setting, launch Cellist, and capture. Then I switch back while Cellist is up so I can analize what I have captured and craft code based upon the info in Cellist. If you are relegated to screen scraping / web scraping to develop an API for a system on the web that offers no API, this tool is invaluable, although not perfect. It would be nice if the tool could export beyond copy/paste. It would be good if the column where the Request Body shows “Name” and “Value” could be resized directly instead of indirectly by changing the window size and sizes of other non-related columns in the display to force the “Name” larger so you can see the variable name from forms. From A UI perspective, Cellist should not show HTTPS in the “Protocols” display if it is not selected in the preferences. Just best practice. It should also give some indication capture or failure to capture… some kind of an activity meter would be nice. Keep in mind that Cellist can and does capture any password being used across HTTPS for any bank account, paypal account, history updates in Safari. Cellist needs to be thoroughly checked out at the traffic level to ensure that no sensitive information is being surreptitiously exfiltrated from your system… You are really putting your trust in Chi Wang by running Cellist… Cellist can only be run for a little while before it crashes. Get used to taking screen snapshots of what Cellist displays before it crashes...
