Using a proxy

You can use the itch app behind an HTTP(S) proxy.

The app will attempt to detect your system settings (Windows, Linux, macOS, etc.), but if it gets them wrong, you can set the environment variable HTTP_PROXY to the correct setting. (The app will also read http_proxy).

For example, if your HTTP(S) proxy is running locally, on port 8081, you would set the value of HTTP_PROXY to localhost:8081.

Here's a guide to to setting an environment variable on Windows

The preferences tab will show if any proxy settings are active, and where it got them from (system or environment). When setting an environment variable, you need to restart the app (Ctrl+Q, Command+Q on macOS, then relaunch) for it to take effect.
