Need socks5/Http proxy support for Finch

Reported by: bhavyanshu Owned by: sadrul
Milestone: Component: finch (gnt/ncurses)
Version: 2.10.6 Keywords: proxy finch socks5


I am having trouble setting up finch to work over socks5 proxy. This should be added as a feature. No, i don't want to configure my system to use system wide proxy as it would affect certain applications. I just want to connect to IRC servers that support TOR. For TOR, I need socks5 proxy support on the client side. I also have tried the TorChat? plugin but it does not work in Finch TUI. Every chat client has support for proxy then why not finch? Finch being the best terminal based chat client, I don't wish to switch to GUI based chat clients. So as a request from a user of finch, please consider implementing this.
