getmac1.4.6 • Public • Published
Get the mac address of the current machine you are on
Will run anywhere that the underlying commands are present:
On Windows, getmac is used
Other environments are not supported as they provide no way of fetching the mac address.
If you are building a server app, or a desktop app, and wanting to get the mac address of where the node.js process is run, then this will work as expected.
If you are building a server app, this will only get the mac address of the server. There is no way to get a web browser user's mac address without installing software on their computer.
If you are building an electron app, you can run this on the server-side then communicate it to the client side.
This library will not run in web browsers / on the client-side / in webpack / in browserify / in angular / in react / in jQuery / in HTML. It will only run on node.js environments, which the web browser is not.
