    non-private-ip

    Picks the first reasonable looking IP address from network interfaces. This should just work when running on a VPS, but also provides private APIs so that when running in LAN you get the first reasonable looking LAN IP address.

    More info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_network

    Your laptop probably does not have a non-local IP address, but your VPS server probably does. This just returns the first address, which will probably be IPv4.

    This module is based on the "ip" module.

    API

    The main export is a function nonPrivateIP(interfaces, filter, details) where:

    • interfaces is either null or a mock of os.networkInterfaces(), typically this should be null
    • filter is a function of the shape (address, details) => boolean where address is the IP address as a string, and details is the whole object with additional fields, e.g. address, netmask, family, mac, cidr, etc
    • details is a boolean that controls whether you want the return of the function to be just the IP address as a string (false, this is the default) or the whole object with additional fields (true)
    // On a VPS:
    const nonPrivateIP = require('non-private-ip')
    nonPrivateIP() // 80.78.25.153
    // In a LAN:
    const nonPrivateIP = require('non-private-ip')
    nonPrivateIP.private() // 192.168.0.101
