One thought on “Bash function for getting local IP on OSX”

  1. The function, as written, failed to return the IP address of my MBP running OS X 10.9.1. After poking around a bit, I was able to modify the function to work. Also, rather than inserting the snippet into .profile, I added it to .bash_profile. This is working for me:

    function ip {
    ifconfig en0
    }
