Using Google Clound Platform SDK installer behind a proxy


In the latest version of Google App Engine SDK, the SDK comes as a part of the Google Cloud Platform SDK. (There's an option to select between that or the legacy SDK). But since new is always better, I tried out the new SDK installer.

Here's the python 2.7 installer for 64bit systems link :

Then I simply followed the instructions, which is to extract the files to *anywhere* and then simply run the script. This script basically adds aliases to the bashrc and downloads some components from the google servers. The issue is that I was behind a proxy and there was no instruction available on how to configure the installer script to use the proxy. So here's how.

Run the following commands replacing the proxy settings as necessary
