How to use credentials in a proxychains configuration?

The proxychains configuration file allows specifying a username and password in the format documented here.

It looks like there’s no way to use this functionality from Nix, though. The proxychains module doesn’t have any logic in place to add credentials.

Is there another way to add credentials that I’m missing?

You can bypass the module and provide the config file:

environment.etc.“proxychains.conf”.text = “config here”;
