Version History

Major Changes - Version 4

New Functions

  • chassis() chassis information
  • vboxInfo() detailed virtualBox VM information
  • wifiNetworks() detailed information about available wifi networks

Breaking Changes

  • networkStats(): will provide an **array** of stats for all given interfaces. In previous versions only one interface was provided as a parameter. Pass '*' for all interfaces
  • networkStats(): rx and tx changed to rx_bytes and tx_bytes
  • dockerContainerStats() will provide an **array** of stats for all given docker containers. In previous versions only one interface was provided as a parameter. Pass '*' for all docker containers

Other Changes

  • system(): optimized system detection (e.g. new Raspberry Pi models, ...)
  • system(), bios(), baseboard(): information also as non-root (linux)
  • graphics(): added pip, pip3, virtualBox,
  • versions(): better controller and display detection, fixes
  • networkInterfaces(): optimization, fixes
  • networkStats() added operstate, type, duplex, mtu, speed, carrierChanges
  • added TypeScript definitions

Be aware**, that the new version 4.x is **NOT fully backward compatible** to version 3.x ...

Major (breaking) Changes - Version 3

  • works only with node.js v4.0.0 and above (using now internal ES6 promise function, arrow functions, ...)
  • Promises. As you can see in the documentation, you can now also use it in a promise oriented way. But callbacks are still supported.
  • Async/Await. Due to the promises support, systeminformation also works perfectly with the `async/await` pattern (available in node.js v7.6.0 and above). See example in the docs.
