Module to check whether you are online or not
A stupid simple python module to check whether you are online or not
waitfornet is a stupid simple script, all it does is check whether you are online or not, and optionally wait until you go online.
On production servers, you don't need such a script because you are always online. But on home PCs or laptops, we plebeians aren't always online! We sometimes have to fiddle with our WiFi connections, we may have a wireless router but we forget to switch them on sometimes. What if I have a scheduled cron job to run at that moment such as this:
$> task1 && task2 && task3
The above won't work properly if the tasks are dependent on an internet connection. With
waitfornet, you can do something like this:
$> waitfornet -w && task1 && task2 && task3
The first command will wait until you go online and once you do, it will exit and then your other crons can run!
pip install waitfornet
-h, --help show this help message and exit -w, --wait Wait until online, keep trying
