Command line tool for DDNS IP address updating.

Project description

noipy: DDNS update tool Snap Status Code Health Maintainability

Command line tool to update DDNS hosts IP address via update API. Initially the tool was designed to update IP address only on No-IP DDNS provider. But now noipy has support for the following DDNS providers:


Install with pip:

$ pip install noipy

Or with Snappy on supported distros:

$ sudo snap install noipy

Note: noipy will also install the Requests HTTP library.


Basic usage of noipy command line tool:

$ noipy -u <your username> -p <your password> -n <your hostname on DDNS provider>
        --provider {generic|noip|dyn|duck}

For DuckDNS provider, the command line would look like this:

$ noipy -u <your token> -n <your DuckDNS domain> --provider duck

Or you can just use --hostname (-n) and --provider arguments if you have previously stored your auth information with --store option.

$ noipy --hostname <your hostname on DDNS provider> --provider {generic|noip|dyn| duck}

You can also specify a custom DDNS URL (thanks to @jayennis22):

$ noipy --hostname <your hostname on DDNS provider> [--provider  generic]
        --url <custom DDNS URL>

It is also possible to inform an IP address other than the machine’s current:

$ noipy --hostname <your hostname on DDNS provider>

If --provider option is not informed, generic will be used as provider.

For details:

$ noipy --help

Storing auth information

With --store option it is possible to store login information. The information is sotred in $HOME/.noipy/ directory:

$ noipy --store --username <your username> --password <your password> \
    --provider {generic|noip|dyn| duck}

Or simply:

$ noipy --store --provider {generic|noip|dyn| duck}

And type username and password when required.

Note: password is stored simply encoded with Base64 method and is not actually encrypted!

Running tests

Install tests dependencies (tox and flake8):

$ pip install -r requirements_dev.txt

Test the code against all supported Python versions and check it against PEP8 with tox:

$ tox

Check PEP8 only:

$ tox -e pep8
