Error: Invalid protocol: null

See original GitHub issue

Hi @chill117 ,

I try to fetch some proxy but it seems it return Error: Invalid protocol: null error for many of proxy sources. Is it a bug or I use package in wrong way?

You must comment out these lines. Then it will work. You could move them to within the 'end' event callback function and it will work as well.

What is happening there:

  • You are setting the HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY environment variables to your proxy, but then you are setting them equal to null later in the same code block. Since everything within ProxyLists is asynchronous, your code that sets the HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY variables to null runs before any code within ProxyLists.
