I’m trying to understand the server replay feature a little better. What I want to do is pretty straight-forward:
The first time a server makes a request to a url, serve the response and then cache it locally. Every subsequent request should be served immediately from cache.
I don’t want to “replay” the response exactly the same way it was originally served because it’s slow on the first request (i.e. it takes 15s to respond on the first time, I want it to basically be instantaneous after that).
Is this the right tool for the job? I know I could probably use Squid or some other proxy, but I want to use mitmproxy for other things (rewriting responses etc.) and so it would be great if I could use a single tool, and it seems possible. Maybe I need to write my own addon though?
Any help better understanding the server replay feature would be greatly appreciated!
