For some development purposes I need to use a proxy server with authentication to test applications. I use Squid but sometimes I just need a simple configurable proxy where I need to provide hostname/ip address, username, password and port and run tests.

Is there any lightweight proxy server for development purposes?

There are many proxy servers. I'm not aware of any designed specifically for "development purposes", but I've used Tinyproxy for many things, including a few development/test deployments. If squid is overkill, then Tinyproxy is probably right for you.
