cordova-plugin-whois

NPM version

This plugin implements the client side of the Internet Whois Protocol defined in RFC 954.

Installation

cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-whois

or

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

Usage

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

Usage with default whois server

The whois server whois.internic.net will be used if no whois server is specified. Here is an example query to the default server for information regarding the domain wikipedia.com:

document.addEventListener('deviceready', onDeviceReady, false);
function onDeviceReady() {
  var w, success, err, queries;
  queries = ['wikipedia.com'];
  success = function (results) {
    console.log(results);
  };
  err = function (e) {
    console.log('Error: ' + e);
  };
  w = new Whois();
  p.whois(queries, success, err);
}

Usage with a specific server

You can query a specific whois server. Here is an example query to the whois server whois.pir.org for information regarding the domain apache.org:

document.addEventListener('deviceready', onDeviceReady, false);
function onDeviceReady() {
  var w, success, err, queries;
  queries = ['apache.org@whois.pir.org'];
  success = function (results) {
    console.log(results);
  };
  err = function (e) {
    console.log('Error: ' + e);
  };
  w = new Whois();
  p.whois(queries, success, err);
}

NOTE: You can get an exhaustive list of whois servers at IANA's Root Zone Database.

Usage with multiple queries

You can perform multiple queries (here, a query to the whois server whois.pir.org for information regarding the domain apache.org, and another query to the whois server whois.nic.fr for information regarding the domain ovh.fr):

document.addEventListener('deviceready', onDeviceReady, false);
function onDeviceReady() {
  var w, success, err, queries;
  queries = ['ovh.fr@whois.nic.fr', 'apache.org@whois.pir.org'];
  success = function (results) {
    console.log(results);
  };
  err = function (e) {
    console.log('Error: ' + e);
  };
  w = new Whois();
  p.whois(queries, success, err);
}
