bash – How to get the primary IP address of the local machine on Linux and OS X? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/02/05

[WayBack] bash – How to get the primary IP address of the local machine on Linux and OS X? – Stack Overflow (thanks [WayBackCollin Anderson!):

I tried on OS X 10.13.6 (macOS High Sierra) and these two work fine:

ip route get 1 | awk '{print $NF;exit}'

and

ip route get 8.8.8.8 | head -1 | cut -d' ' -f8

The first one needs the $ back-slash escaped as bash alias; the second does not need that.
