Asyncio Websockets with Proxy

Hello! I am trying to connect to a websocket server via a http proxy using asyncio but running into some issues. The code works fine when I remove the proxy flag in the WebsocketClientFactory. However, with the proxy flag, the client seems to ignore the proxy url altogether and hit the server directly via a HTTP Connect request. Are there any examples of how to use asyncio + websockets with a proxy I can take a look at?

Also is connecting via WSS through a HTTP proxy supported when using asyncio?

Below is the code, any help would be appreciated.

from autobahn.asyncio.websocket import WebSocketClientProtocol, \

class MyClientProtocol(WebSocketClientProtocol):

def onConnect(self, response):
    print("Server connected: {0}".format(response.peer))

def onOpen(self):
    print("WebSocket connection open.")

    def hello():
        self.sendMessage("Hello, world!".encode('utf8'))
        self.sendMessage(b"\x00\x01\x03\x04", isBinary=True)
        self.factory.loop.call_later(1, hello)

    # start sending messages every second ..

def onMessage(self, payload, isBinary):
    if isBinary:
        print("Binary message received: {0} bytes".format(len(payload)))
        print("Text message received: {0}".format(payload.decode('utf8')))

def onClose(self, wasClean, code, reason):
    print("WebSocket connection closed: {0}".format(reason))

async def onPing(self, payload):
    When receiving ping message from spacebridge
    print("Received ping")

async def onPong(self, payload):
    """ When receiving pong message from spacebridge

    print("Received Pong")

if __name__ == '__main__':

    proxy = {'host': '', 'port': 8080}

    factory = WebSocketClientFactory("ws://", proxy=proxy)
    factory.protocol = MyClientProtocol

    loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
    coro = loop.create_connection(factory, '', 9000)
