Shows stats for the
That's all it does.
I was just learning how to make a react app is all.
yarn install npm run start-all
v0.2.0 you can ping any host with an environment variable.
export PINGDOMAIN=google.com npm run start-all
If you want to be able to run this from anywhere, then for now add this in your
alias pingstats='npm run start-all -prefix /path/to/ping-stats'; # And then from any directory... pingstats
ngrok start --all --config ./ngrok-conf.yml # Then in a browser, visit # http://<port3000-url>?ws=<port8888-url> # Don't add the protocol for the port 8888 url. # Example (using image below): # http://70219c1b.ngrok.io?ws=12115b68.ngrok.io
Why does this exist?
Well, being a frequent online gamer, knowing how my internet connection is performing is important to me. And normally me or my friends just ping a public IP to see how our internet connection is doing. We keep it running for a while, all day sometimes, just so we know how it's been upto the time we decide to log in.
Let me give you an example.
We want to play a game at 6:30pm. I know my internet connection suffers some ping losses around 6pm and continues for an hour. If I have my program running and decide to check it at 6:30pm, then I can see if today I'm facing the same issues since the last half an hour, or if it's all good and I can bring in the clan to go guns blazing and what not.
All gamers use some form of ping testing tool every now and then, this is something I made for that purpose.
Also I wanted to learn React, so, that works.
