Test if string is an IP address in Node.js
- 12 Nov 2017: Post was created (diff)
I just found some new (since v0.3.0) functions in the Node.js
net module. These functions enables you to check if you have a valid IP address regardless of family, or if it is specifically an IPv4 or IPv6 address.
const net = require('net') const assert = require('assert') assert.strictEqual(net.isIP('127.0.0.1'), 4); assert.strictEqual(net.isIP('x127.0.0.1'), 0); assert.strictEqual(net.isIP('example.com'), 0); assert.strictEqual(net.isIP('0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000'), 6); assert.strictEqual(net.isIPv4('127.0.0.1'), true); assert.strictEqual(net.isIPv4('example.com'), false); assert.strictEqual(net.isIPv6('127.0.0.1'), false); assert.strictEqual(net.isIPv6('2001:252:0:1::2008:6'), true);
The above tests are taken from the upstream repository.
