myip - a simple tool for displaying the current IP

After 30 years of TCP/IP, it's about time to have a tool that simply displays an IP. The current popular tools (ifconfig, ip addr show) provide complex output and argument set, while usually we run them in order to simply get an answer to the question "which IP(s) are configured on this host?".

myip is intended to be used by both scripts and humans.

API may be added later.


sudo pip install myip

Uninstall using pip uninstall myip


myip - prints the primary IP.

myip --all - prints all IPs configured on the system

myip <iface name> - prints the IP of given interface, e.g. eth0.
