Registering a custom IP checker

pif ships with a number of pre-defined public IP checkers. But you may extend it by defining your own ones as follows.

from pif.base import BaseIPChecker, registry

class MyPublicIPChecker(BaseIPChecker):

    uid = 'mypublicipchecker' # UID of the checker

    def get_public_ip(self):
        # TODO: Implement your logic


# Register the checker
registry.register(MyPublicIPChecker)

# Get public IP using the preferred checker
get_public_ip('mypublicipchecker')

It's possible to get your public IP address from command line using the pif.commands.get_public_ip module.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
