Next Generation of ShadowsocksX

Why a new implementation?

It's hard to maintain the original implementation as there is too much unused code in it. It also embeds the ss-local source code. It's crazy to maintain dependencies of ss-local. So it's hard to update the ss-local version.

Now I just copied the ss-local from Homebrew. Run ss-local executable as a Launch Agent in the background. So there is only some source code related to GUI left. Then I have rewrited the GUI code in Swift.



macOS 10.12+


  • Xcode 12.5.1+
  • CocoaPods 1.10.1+


From here


  • ss-local from shadowsocks-libev 3.2.5.
  • Support SIP003 plugins. Embed kcptun, simple-obfs and v2ray-plugin.
  • Could update PAC by download GFW List from GitHub.
  • Share your server profiles by qrcode or url.
  • Import server profile urls from pasteboard.
  • Import server profile by scan QRCode on screen.
  • Custom rules for PAC.
  • Support for AEAD Ciphers
  • HTTP Proxy by privoxy

Difference from original ShadowsocksX

ss-local is run as a background service through launchd, not as an in-app process. So after you quit the app, the ss-local might be still running.

Added a manual mode which won't configure the system proxy settings, so that you could configure your apps to use the SOCKS5 proxy manually.
