Module: utils.localinterfaces

Simple utility for building a list of local IPs using the socket module. This module defines two constants:

LOCALHOST : The loopback interface, or the first interface that points to this
machine. It will almost always be ‘127.0.0.1’
LOCAL_IPS : A list of IP addresses, loopback first, that point to this machine.
This will include LOCALHOST, PUBLIC_IPS, and aliases for all hosts, such as ‘0.0.0.0’.
PUBLIC_IPS : A list of public IP addresses that point to this machine.
Use these to tell remote clients where to find you.
