Colorize output from command: ip address
The output from the command
ip address provides voluminous information about your Ethernet interfaces. This is great but most of the time you just want to know the IP address and if the interface is up or down. The following version of the command gives you just that:
ip -brief -color address.
I appended the following alias command to my
~/.bash_aliases file so I can just type
alias ipaddr="ip -brief -color address"
