Source

on-net-listen

Observe when something in your node app starts listening on a TCP port.

npm install on-net-listen

build status

Uses async_hooks behind the scenes and requires Node >=9

Usage

var onnetlisten = require('on-net-listen')

onnetlisten(function (addr) {
  // addr is the same object as server.address()
  // for the port do addr.port
  console.log('Someone started listening:', addr)
})

var http = require('http')

var server = http.createServer(function () {
  // ...
})

server.listen(0) // will trigger the above listener

API

var emitter = onnetlisten(onlistening)

Start listening for when TCP servers start listening.

The returned event emitter emits listening when that happens with the address object for the tcp server that started listening.

To stop the listener do emitter.destroy()
