We have done the hard work for you….
Shadowsocks is often difficult to set up because it originated as a for-coders, by-coders tool. The software first reached the public in 2012 via Github, when a developer using the pseudonym âClowwindyâ uploaded it to the code repository. Word-of-mouth spread among other Chinese developers, as well as on Twitter, which has long been a hub for anti-firewall Chinese programmers. A community formed around Shadowsocks. Employees at some of the worldâs largest tech companiesâboth Chinese and internationalâwork together in their free time to maintain the softwareâs code. Developers have built third-party apps to run it, each touting various custom features.
