ss-local: Use a plugin to run the proxy client.
$ ss-local --plugin ${plugin_name} --plugin-opts ${plugin_options}
try on your machine

The command "ss-local" is a command-line tool used in Shadowsocks, a secure proxy protocol, to establish a local proxy server. The specific behavior of the command is determined by certain parameters and options provided.

The "--plugin" option is used to specify the name of a plugin that should be used with ss-local. A plugin extends the functionality of Shadowsocks by adding additional features or encryption methods. In this command, "${plugin_name}" should be replaced with the actual name of the plugin.

The "--plugin-opts" option is used to provide options or settings specific to the chosen plugin. "${plugin_options}" should be replaced with the actual options relevant to the plugin being used.

By executing this command, ss-local will launch and initialize a local Shadowsocks proxy server with the specified plugin and its corresponding options, enabling the secure transmission of network traffic through the established proxy.
