Use Google Web Designer with a proxy server

Google Web Designer's shell application supports the same custom proxy settings that the Chrome browser does. Learn more about Chrome and Chromium settings.

If you have already changed your Chrome settings to allow it to work with your proxy server, the changes to Google Web Designer should already be familiar.

Google Web Designer does not support reading or changing proxy settings from the command line, so you will need to make changes in the application's preferences, which are stored in the registry on Windows, the application plist on Mac, and in the [Settings] section of the Google Web Designer configuration file on Linux. The locations are shown below:

Windows HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Web Designer\Settings
Mac ~/Library/Preferences/com.google.WebDesigner.plist
Linux ~/.local/share/google-web-designer/preferences/settings.conf

Note: If the [Settings] section doesn't exist in this file, you'll need to create it first.

Google Web Designer uses the following proxy settings:

Name Value Note
no-proxy-server Boolean On Windows, Boolean types are 32-bit DWORD values where non-zero values indicate true and zero indicates false.
proxy-auto-detect Boolean
  • On Windows, Boolean types are 32-bit DWORD values where non-zero values indicates true and zero indicates false.
  • This flag is ignored if proxy-server is provided.
proxy-server string Google Web Designer does not currently support any proxies that require authentication.

proxy-pac-url string
