Top 5 JavaScript Tor Projects

  • ZeroNet

    ZeroNet - Decentralized websites using Bitcoin crypto and BitTorrent network

    Project mention: zeronet-conservancy v0.7.9 and status update | /r/zeronet | 2023-07-01

    our views on the project are incompatible. i consider it harmful to the community to: - advertise fork as official continuation (the worst parts of this were eventually removed, but the project's website still completely mimics official and there's no indication it's a fork anywhere - ship binaries presumably made out of builds made by disappeared nofish - copypaste changes without attribution

  • youtube-local

    browser-based client for watching Youtube anonymously and with greater page performance

    Project mention: Hosting yt-local. | /r/SelfHosting | 2023-08-17

    I am planning to host youtube-local ( on my old laptop that's running Ubuntu Server. I don't plan on accessing the instance outside the local network.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The open-source backend cloud platform. The open-source backend cloud platform for developing Web, Mobile, and Flutter applications. You can set up your backend faster with real-time APIs for authentication, databases, file storage, cloud functions, and much more!

  • LocateJS

    Check if your location is actually hidden

  • accumulator

    :rocket: Send a load of requests with nodejs using cluster and with/without Tor for anonymisation :see_no_evil:

  • Kraker-Local-Proxy-Server

    A local proxy server based on Node.js for use with desktop web browsers. Primarily intended for website hacking. Includes HTTP, HTTPS and Socks5 ports with integrated DNS and DNS-over-HTTPS.

    Project mention: Ask HN: What Are You Working On? (August 2023) | | 2023-08-01

    A tool for scraping websites. Not intended for parasitic web scraping but could probably be used that way. My interest is in stealing video links from sites that try to hide them. I like playing movies and other content on a video player that is external to the web browser. Getting video links is not always easy (Rumble, for example, doesn't try to hide it) but it can be deviously hard to grab from pirate web sites which use many tactics to block access (obfuscation, encryption, special headers, etc.). Sometimes this requires mocking the website (to get past the bot challenge, for example) and possibly inserting code into the site JS to pass information across a websocket to my app.

    It's an ongoing project that started with a simple browser-based video player and has expanded to a full-featured proxy server which works with the browser to bypass cross-origin restrictions and other techniques to prevent unauthorized access to a website.

    Planning to release the new updates soon (which I have not done for several months).
