⚙️ Usage

To use Request-Details in your Express application, you can import the RequestDetail class from the package and create an instance of it with the Express request object. Here's an example:

const RequestDetails = require('request-details').default;
// CommonJS:
import RequestDetails from 'request-details';

import express from "express";

const app = express();

app.get("/", (req, res) => {
  const requestDetail = new RequestDetail(req);
  // Get IP info
  requestDetail.getIpInfo()
    .then(ipInfo => {
      console.log(ipInfo);
      // { ip: '127.0.0.1', country: 'US', city: 'New York', ... }
    })
    .catch(err => {
      console.error(err);
    });

  // Get OS info
  const os = requestDetail.getOs();
  console.log(os); // { name: 'Windows', version: '10' }

  // Get browser info
  const browser = requestDetail.getBrowser();
  console.log(browser); // { name: 'Chrome', version: '58.0.3029.110' }

  // Get device info
  const device = requestDetail.getDevice();
  console.log(device); // { type: 'desktop', vendor: 'Unknown', model: 'Unknown' }

  // Get CPU info
  const cpu = requestDetail.getCPU();
  console.log(cpu); // { architecture: 'amd64' }

  res.send("Hello world!");
});

app.use(RequestDetails.middleware); // It will add the details to the request object (optional)
app.get('/middleware', async (req, res, next) => {
    const ipDetails = await req.info.getIpInfo()
    res.json(ipDetails)
})

app.listen(3000, () => {
  console.log("Server is running on port 3000");
});
