If your proxy requires authentication, you will need to put your username and password into the url like this: ""

Guide for Plugins (environment variables)

Avocode Sketch & Photoshop plugins respect proxy server configuration set by HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY environment variables. To use your proxy, you will need to set both of these variables to your proxy server address.

In the howto below, replace "" with the address to your proxy server. Note that values of both HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY must be the same.

If your proxy requires authentication, you will need to your username and password into both HTTP(S)_PROXY variables before the domain like this: ""


  1. On Windows 8 press windows key and type "environment", select Edit environment variables for your account:

    On Windows 7 yous can find this in Control panel, see this document

  2. Create New user variable HTTP_PROXY, value will be your proxy url.

  3. Create a second variable HTTPS_PROXY - the value should be the same 

  4. Confirm your changes by pressing OK

These changes will work permanently until you delete these variables.


You will need to run these commands in Terminal to set both env variables:

launchctl setenv HTTP_PROXY
launchctl setenv HTTPS_PROXY

To make the change work permanently (even after reboot), add both lines to /etc/launchd.conf - this doesn't work on Yosemite though, you would need to create a custom apple script


You can run this command before launching Avocode in terminal:


To make the change permanent, you will need to change your ~/.profile (for bash) or other files depending on your terminal. See this stack exchange answer for more info.
