Not sure why I haven’t got around to writing any shell commands / scripts in the past… here’s my first Bash :p
Here’s an alias to check which country my VPN is connected to in 3 steps:
- ifconfig.me call to set IP address to a variable
- shows the IP address
- checks the IP variable on whois
- truncates the output to the ‘address’ output to see location
alias whoami='todays_ip=$(curl ifconfig.me) && echo $todays_ip && whois $todays_ip | grep "address:"'
