Installation

npm

> npm i peer-info

Node.JS, Browserify, Webpack

const PeerInfo = require('peer-info')

Browser: <script> Tag

Loading this module through a script tag will make the PeerInfo obj available in the global namespace.

<script src="https://unpkg.com/peer-info/dist/index.min.js"></script>
<!-- OR -->
<script src="https://unpkg.com/peer-info/dist/index.js"></script>

Usage

const PeerInfo = require('peer-info')
const peer = new PeerInfo()

// TCP port 5001
peer.multiaddrs.add('/ip4/1.2.3.4/tcp/5001')

// UDP port 8001
peer.multiaddrs.add('/ip4/1.2.3.4/udp/8001')

// mic/speaker soundwaves using frequencies 697 and 1209
peer.multiaddrs.add('/sonic/bfsk/697/1209')

API

const PeerInfo = require('peer-info')

PeerInfo.create([id])

Creates a new PeerInfo instance and if no id is passed it generates a new underlying PeerID for it.

Returns Promise<PeerInfo>.

new PeerInfo(id)

  • id: PeerId - instance of PeerId (optional)

Creates a new PeerInfo instance from an existing PeerId.

.id

The PeerId of the peer this info relates to.

protocols

A list of protocols that peer supports.

.protocols.add(protocol)

Adds a protocol that peer can support. protocol is a string.

.protocols.delete(protocol)

Removes a protocol that peer no longer supports. protocol is a string.

.multiaddrs

A list of multiaddresses instances that peer can be reached at.

.multiaddrs.add(addr)

  • addr: Multiaddr

Adds a new multiaddress that peer can be reached at. addr is an instance of a multiaddr.

.multiaddrs.addSafe(addr)

  • addr: Multiaddr

The addSafe call, in comparison to add, will only add the multiaddr to multiaddrs if the same multiaddr tries to be added twice.

This is a simple mechanism to prevent multiaddrs from becoming bloated with unusable addresses, which happens when we exchange observed multiaddrs with peers which will not provide a useful multiaddr to be shared to the rest of the network (e.g. a multiaddr referring to a peer inside a LAN being shared to the outside world).

.multiaddrs.delete(addr)

  • addr: Multiaddr

Removes a multiaddress instance addr from peer.

.multiaddrs.replace(existing, fresh)

  • existing: Multiaddr
  • fresh: Multiaddr

Removes the array of multiaddresses existing from peer, and adds the array of multiaddresses fresh.

.connect(ma)

Records the given multiaddr, ma as the active multiaddr of the peer.

  • ma: Multiaddr

.disconnect()

Removes the existing connected Multiaddr from tracking.

.isConnected()

Returns true if a connected Multiaddr exists, otherwise returns false.
