How to get the ip address of your localhost on a mac

If you need to use the ip address of your mac instead of using localhost, here is an easy way to find the ip address of your mac via the command line.

Just run the following command in your terminal

ifconfig | grep broadcast

In the output that follows, the place that I have marked as [ip address] is your local ip address


inet [ip address] netmask 0xfffff000 broadcast
