It's a handy feature if you have a bunch of error log that you've already captured from Charles and would like to investigate or migrate to the Proxyman app.
Fortunately, Charles has a built-in command that allows us to convert the CHLS file to the HAR format that Proxyman can understand. Thus, please make sure that you have this app on your machine.
FYI: We can manually convert by executing this command on Terminal
./Applications/Charles.app/Contents/MacOS/Charles convert ~/Desktop/input.chls ~/Desktop/output.har
\1. Export Charles Session: We can export the current session in two ways:
- Right-click on the selected requests -> Export Session -> Select *.chls format -> Save
- or File menu -> Export Session as... -> Select *.chls format -> Save
\2. Drag and Drop to Proxyman app
You can drag and drop the file to Proxyman app
\3. At the first time you've used this feature, Proxyman would prompt the warning to make sure you're aware that Proxyman will use Charles to convert automatically.
If Charles app doesn't install on your Mac, Proxyman would prompt the alert.
\4. All done
At this step, Proxyman will find the default Charles app path and trigger the command to convert the file.
From here, we can:
- Repeat & Edit the request for testing
- Set rule for Map Local & Breakpoint
