Debugging LWP with mitmproxy

Are you using an LWP app, and trying to debug it? My personal preferences is using mitmproxy.

To get LWP to use mitmproxy, set the following ENV variables:

PERL_LWP_ENV_PROXY=1 HTTPS_PROXY='http://localhost:8080/' ./script/myapp

Note, this also works for apps using Mojo::UserAgent, except you don't need the first ENV variable.
