The easiest way to extend functionality of Angry IP Scanner is to write a plugin.
In order to get the source code, the following command must be run (make sure you have git installed):
git clone git://github.com/angryziber/ipscan.git
This command will fetch the current source code of the program with full history into local directory named ‘ipscan’. Or just browse the code repository on Github.
If the source of particular release is required, then you can later switch to particular tag using:
git checkout tag-name
where tag-name is the released version number (eg 3.0-beta4), for full list of available tags use:
In order to build the binaries, you need only to run ‘ant’ in the ‘ipscan’ directory. Ant will use the standard build.xml script there and compile, test, and package the program for all platforms. Note: some packaging features were tested only on Linux.
The source code tree also includes the preconfigured Intellij IDEA project for convenience. After opening the project in IDEA, make sure you add to the build path the appropriate directory from src-platform according to the OS you are currently using as well as the correct swt jar file from ext/swt. Then, it can be run using the net.azib.ipscan.Main class.
If you know some language other than English well, then please help translating Angry IP Scanner into that language.
For that, you need to take the latest resources/messages.properties file, copy it with the ISO 2-letter language suffix (eg messages_et.properties), translate all the messages and send to me by email (or make a pull request).
To test your translations, run Angry IP Scanner from the command-line (assuming that the translated file is in the same directory as the original jar or exe):
java -cp .:ipscan-xxx.jar net.azib.ipscan.Main
- src - the main subdirectory of the project tree, which contains the Java package structure of the source (net.azib.ipscan and its sub packages). All the source code, needed for running the program is stored there.
- src-platform - platform-specific source code. Use the appropriate subdirectory for your OS (linux, linux64, mac or win32) when compiling/running.
- test - contains exactly the same Java package structure as src does, but is intended for unit tests and other classes, which are not needed for running Angry IP Scanner itself. Each test case Java class should have the same name as the original class under test, but with the Test suffix, for example, Feeder and FeederTest.
- ext - for external libraries. The contents of each library’s directory will depend on the original structure of that library, however, not all the original files may be included.
- resources - textual and graphical resources to be packaged with the program.
Angry IP Scanner source code is in the net.azib.ipscan Java package.
- net.azib.ipscan.config - classes, related to configuration
- net.azib.ipscan.core - core scanner classes
- net.azib.ipscan.core.state - scanner’s state machine implementation
- net.azib.ipscan.feeders - all feeder implementations
- net.azib.ipscan.fetchers - all fetcher implementations
- net.azib.ipscan.exporters - all exporter implementations
- net.azib.ipscan.gui - for GUI packages and classes (which are separate from the core functionality)
- net.azib.ipscan.gui.actions - most GUI listeners, such as menu item and button handlers
javax.inject annotations, thus all classes that can be injected must have an @Inject-annotated constructor.
Dependent objects that are required to be provided by the injection are then either annotated as fields or constructor parameters.
Dagger then resolves these dependencies automatically, so that the classes themselves don’t have to worry where their dependencies come from. This eases both development and unit testing of the code.
Components are registered in the ComponentRegistry class.
