Debugging Mobile Apps with mitmproxy

Ever wonder exactly what network connections your favorite mobile app is making? In this small walkthrough, we’ll use mitmproxy to gain insight into how some of our favorite mobile apps work.

Before getting started though, it’s worth mentioning that there are plenty of other tools that allow use to do the same; such as: Fiddler and Charles Proxy. I prefer mitmproxy for it’s simplicity. Fiddler is a close second as it provides far more rich network details (and Websocket frame inspection 👍)
