How do you proxy your services for frontend development?

I’m looking to find a solution for proxying services during development to avoid CORS issues in the browser. Would appreciate any insights folks could provide or tools anyone could suggest.

If you are using Webpack, check out dev server proxy. Note the changeOrigin property. You can create a minimal webpack project with just the dev server config and run it from terminal.

For CORS issues though, we don't do this. We use CORS in production (static assets on different subdomain from API), so it made sense to make it a config parameter and use it in dev too.
