GeoIPs

Ruby library to interact with the GeoIPS.com IP geo-location API.

Note

I have no association with the company running this service. All support questions not related to the library itself should be forwarded to them.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'geo_ips'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install geo_ips

Usage

require 'geo_ips'
require 'yajl' # The library uses multi_json, so this is recommended, but not required.

@geoips = GeoIPs.new("your-api-key-here")
@geoips.lookup("66.147.244.214")

#=> { "status" : "Success", 
#     "ip" : "66.147.244.214", 
#     "hostname" : "box714.bluehost.com", 
#     "owner" : "BLUEHOST INC.", 
#     "continent_name" : "NORTH AMERICA", 
#     "continent_code" : "NA", 
#     "country_name" : "UNITED STATES", 
#     "country_code" : "US", 
#     "region_name" : "UTAH", 
#     "region_code" : "UT", 
#     "county_name" : "UTAH", 
#     "city_name" : "PROVO", 
#     "latitude" : "40.3402", 
#     "longitude" : "-111.6073" }

Testing

To test the library, you'll need to signup for an API key and place the key in a file called .api_key in the root directory of the library.
