cordova-plugin-nslookup

NPM version

This plugin implements the nslookup software utility.

Installation

cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-nslookup

or

cordova plugin add https://github.com/t1st3/cordova-plugin-nslookup.git

Usage

This plugin defines a global NsLookup object. Although the object is in the global scope, it is not available until after the deviceready event.

query a domain

By default, querying a domain will return the domains associated IPv4 address. Here is an example of a query for the domain wikipedia.org:

document.addEventListener('deviceready', onDeviceReady, false);
function onDeviceReady() {
  var n, success, err, query;
  query = ['wikipedia.org'];
  success = function (results) {
    console.log(results);
  };
  err = function (e) {
    console.log('Error: ' + e);
  };
  n = new NsLookup();
  n.nslookup(query, success, err);
}

query a domain's specific record (here, A records)

You can specify which type of DNS record will be queried. Here is an example of a query on an A record of the domain wikipedia.org:

document.addEventListener('deviceready', onDeviceReady, false);
function onDeviceReady() {
  var n, success, err, query;
  query = [{query: 'wikipedia.org', type: 'A'}];
  success = function (results) {
    console.log(results);
  };
  err = function (e) {
    console.log('Error: ' + e);
  };
  n = new NsLookup();
  n.nslookup(query, success, err);
}

NOTE: The following records are currently supported:

  • A
  • AAAA
  • CNAME
  • MX
  • NS
  • PTR
  • SOA
  • SRV
  • TXT

Multiple queries

You can also mix queries. Here is an example of multiple queries (for each supported record) mixed together:

document.addEventListener('deviceready', onDeviceReady, false);
function onDeviceReady() {
  var n, success, err, query;
  query = [
    'wikipedia.org',
    {query: 'google.com', type: 'A'},
    {query: 'google.com', type: 'AAAA'},
    {query: 'www.tiste.org', type: 'CNAME'},
    {query: 'google.com', type: 'MX'},
    {query: 'google.com', type: 'NS'},
    {query: '192.174.198.91.in-addr.arpa', type: 'PTR'},
    {query: 'google.com', type: 'SOA'},
    {query: '_xmpp-server._tcp.gmail.com', type: 'SRV'},
    {query: 'google.com', type: 'TXT'}
  ];
  success = function (results) {
    console.log(results);
  };
  err = function (e) {
    console.log('Error: ' + e);
  };
  n = new NsLookup();
  n.nslookup(query, success, err);
}

Methods

  • NsLookup.nslookup

NsLookup.nslookup

This method takes the following arguments:

  • queries: an array of queries
  • success: a callback function that handles success
  • err: a callback function that handles error

The callback function for success takes one argument, which is a JSON array of results. Here a comprehensive sample of results for each type of supported record, matching the multiple queries described above:

    "type": "",
