Tor logo

Tor is free software and an open network that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security when navigating on the Internet. You can easily install it (works on Mac, Windows, Linux/UNIX and Android) and then start navigating anonymously. To learn more about how Tor works, please check https://www.torproject.org/about/overview.html

I have created a gem with Jeweler to allow Ruby code to make HTTP requests using Tor networking. The gem is called tor_request.

Basically you need to run Tor, configure the port and the call:

1
res = Tor::HTTP.get("google.com")

Happy hacking!
