Hostsfile

Go hostsfile /etc/hosts parsing and resolver

The /etc/hosts parsing and resolver library for golang

Hostsfile is a go (golang) package for parsing hosts files and performing reverse IP -> hostname lookups which are file-based (e.g. via /etc/hosts).

This can be helpful to determine if there is a prettier (or known) hostname available for an IP address.

These lookups are "extremely inexpensive" compared to normal IP reverse DNS lookups because no network communication is required, as these lookups are all file-based! Naturally, the (obvious) tradeoff/downside is that this only works in cases where the IP mapping exists in the hostsfile.

Get it

go get -u https://github.com/jaytaylor/go-hostsfile 

Usage

package main  import (     "fmt"      "github.com/jaytaylor/go-hostsfile" )  func main() {     res, err := hostsfile.ReverseLookup("127.0.0.1")     if err != nil {         panic(err)     }     fmt.Printf("%v maps 127.0.0.1 to the following names: %v", hostsfile.HostsPath, res) }

Output:

/etc/hosts maps 127.0.0.1 to the following names: [localhost] 

Supported Operating Systems

Tested and verified working on:

  • Linux
  • Mac OS X
  • Windows

It should also support Plan9, though admittedly I don’t have a plan9 installation available to verify that one 😉

Unit-tests

Running the unit-tests is straightforward and standard:

go test
