IP Address Workflow

Recommended Posts

First workflow, and first upload.


There are no external requirements. Simple script is included.  This should print (in Large type window) your current IP addresses on "normal" interfaces, or it will say 'down' or 'invalid'.


Improvements certainly welcome!


Launch by typing "ipstat" into Alfred.


I created this so I could quickly see my IP addresses from anywhere in OS X without using the mouse.

Thanks for this workflow I modified it a bit:


1.  One of my ethernet addresses did not start with a number so your grep was removing it.

2.  I added the name of the device next to the 

3.  Removed displaying interfaces that do not have an ip address

4.  Added displaying the public facing ip address

INTERFACES=$(networksetup -listallhardwareports | grep -B 2 "Ethernet Address: [a-f]*" | grep -v -E '(Ethernet|\-\-)' | cut -d":" -f2 | paste -s -d" " -)

# Parse through interfaces
for interface in $INTERFACES
	CMD_OUT=$(ifconfig $interface inet 2>&1 | grep -v -E '(option|flags)' | cut -d" " -f2)
	if [ -z $CMD_OUT ]; then
		if [ $CMD_OUT = "interface" ]; then
			echo "$(networksetup -listallhardwareports | grep -B 1 "Device: $interface" | grep "Hardware Port" | cut -d":" -f2) ($interface) $CMD_OUT"
echo " Public Facing $(dig +short myip.opendns.com @resolver1.opendns.com)"
