Runtime Configuration


For major re-configurations or variations from the default behavior of DIDKit, modifying the code and compiling your own binaries is required.

For a short but growing list of minor options, however, runtime configuration of DIDKit behavior and security policies is possible. Feel free to open issues on DIDKit's GitHub repo if you are experimenting with DIDKit and have pain points that would be served by additional runtime configuration options.

Network configuration

For all outbound HTTP requests, DIDKit relies on the upstream reqwest library. reqwest checks the environmental variables in DIDKit's environment for the variables HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY to route http and https traffic, respectively. If you have set up such a proxy, including a reverse proxy or SOCKS service, you can set the appropriate environmental variable(s) and assume reqwest will route appropriately.

This proxying is unavailable in the npm package didkit-wasm to date.

For more information about how reqwest handles proxies, see the proxies section of the reqwest docs on, the Rust ecosystem documentation repository.
