    Build status js-standard-style

    Installation

    This software is written in Node.js and can be installed using the npm package manager. Ensure that you've downloaded and installed Node.js before continueing.

    Install the bonjour program globally:

    npm install bonjour-browser -g
    

    Usage

    bonjour [Service Name]
    

    Run the bonjour command without any arguments to get a list of available services no matter their Service Name.

    $ bonjour
    Intranet._http._tcp.local
    HP LaserJet 4600._ipp._tcp.local
    HP LaserJet 4600._http._tcp.local
    Brother 5070N._ipp._tcp.local
    Canon W2200._ipp._tcp.local
    

    Add a Service Name as the 1st argument to limit your search to only instanes of the given Servie Name:

    $ bonjour ipp
    Brother 5070N._ipp._tcp.local
    Canon W2200._ipp._tcp.local
    HP LaserJet 4600._ipp._tcp.local
    

    Gotcha

    Due to the way the DNS-SD standard is defined, services run by clients that do not respond to _services._dns-sd._udp.<Domain> queries will not be discovered if you do not provide their Service Name as the 1st argument.
