    port: 9050,
})

let ip = response.data;
console.log(ip);

or

const tor_axios = require('tor-axios');
const axios = require('axios');

const tor = tor_axios.torSetup({
    ip: 'localhost',
    port: 9050,
})

const inst = axios.create({
    httpAgent: tor.httpAgent(),
    httpsagent: tor.httpsAgent(),
});

let response = await inst.get('http://api.ipify.org');
let ip = response.data;
console.log(ip);

Requirements

On Debian you can install and run a relatively up to date Tor with.

apt-get install tor # should auto run as daemon after install

On OSX you can install with homebrew

brew install tor
tor & # run as background process

Enable Tor ControlPort

You need to enable the Tor ControlPort if you want to programmatically refresh the Tor session (i.e., get a new proxy IP address) without restarting your Tor client.

tor --hash-password giraffe

The last line of the output contains the hash password that you copy paste into torrc
