NGINX Passthrough Container

Purpose

Used to access remote APIs from a local container. This is helpful for fixing CORS errors when doing development, among other things.

Instructions

This container requires a $PASSTHROUGH_HOST environment variable when starting the container.

This example uses the useful service JSONPlaceholder as its sample passthrough API.

Example:

$ docker run -d --rm \
    --name nginx_passthrough \
    -p 3000:80 \
    -e PASSTHROUGH_HOST=https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com \
    -e ALLOWED_ORIGIN=\$http_origin \
