Add-On Type(s)

Extension, Module


Proxy is an EE2.0 Module used to substitue template tags with placeholder data, in order to more efficiently and effectively test your templates. Before Proxy, I was creating a plethora of test entires to test various types of content that could be used in a Channel Field. The process of creating all these dummy entries was time consuming, confusing, and led to me not testing as rigarously as I should have been. Proxy was created to speed up the testing of templates, by allowing the developer to quicky swap in placeholder tag data when the template renders.

This add-on is not being developed any longer and I would discourage its use.


* EE 2.0
* jQuery


1. Add-ons -> Modules -> Proxy -> Install
2. Install both the Module and the Extension
3. Turn on the module by toggling the Substitution Enabled setting.

Hooks Used

If the add-on is an extension, and ties into ExpressionEngine's core files, it will use ExpressionEngine hooks. We are listing any hooks the add-on uses for developers to have an easier time locating other add-ons that they can reference for their own work.
