Tutorial :Connect to Tor network with ruby

I had to use this Gem http://socksify.rubyforge.org/ then I was able to do something like this

TCPSocket::socks_server = ""  TCPSocket::socks_port = 9050  reply = Net::HTTP.get URI.parse("www.google.com")  

Obviously with the Tor proxy running.


Created a Gem, maybe can help others: https://github.com/brunogh/tor_requests
