(A better) What's My IP Address web application. Determines both your IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, issues WHOIS and reverse DNS lookups, and shows all your HTTP headers.
This project was quite literally hacked out in one weekend, and was my first App Engine project.
AppEngine Go SDK
$ gcloud components install app-engine-go
Make (which comes on Linux or Mac)
As designed, this Go application will run on the Standard Google App Engine. It requires two to three host names. One that is IPv4 only, and one that is IPv6 only. In my configuration I have ip.bramp.net that has both A and AAAA records, ip4.bramp.net that has only A records, and ip6.bramp.net that only has AAAA records. These all point to the same App Engine instance.
$ dig ip.bramp.net ip.bramp.net. 300 IN A 22.214.171.124 ip.bramp.net. 300 IN AAAA 2001:4860:4802:32::15 $ dig ip4.bramp.net ip4.bramp.net. 300 IN A 126.96.36.199 $ dig AAAA ip6.bramp.net ip6.bramp.net. 300 IN AAAA 2001:4860:4802:32::15
All three domain names should be configured in main.go (find the prodConfig var).
make deploy # to prod make stage # to stage
To start up a local instance, just execute:
To keep libraries up to date run:
make veryclean make test
- Add rate limiting of requests
- Add caching of DNS and WHOIS records (including the iana IP ranges)
- Add configuration file, so can be hosted on different domains
- Add a favicon.ico
- Add Make test (which checks with different build tags, e.g macos,appengine linux,appengine)
- Implement a App Engine Flex, and other PaaS environments
- Minify all css and js and combine into one file
- Do better at determining the root cause errors. e.g If both IPv4/IPv6 fail, then perhaps problem with the site. If IPv6 fails after 30 seconds, perhaps problem with IPv6 connectivity.
- Refactor the app. We don't need to seperate appengine and not appengine anymore. The code is almost identical.
