It would be great if there were a REST api which would allow for other apps (javascript, php, asp.net) to access the Geo IP data.

A great example is this project:
http://freegeoip.net/
which has a very simple REST api.

Also,
Would love to have a step by step tutorial on how to deploy the application on something like Heroku. As an ASP developer, Node.js is still something I have not played with. I am sure that other developers not familiar with Node.js could greatly benefit from such a step by step guide on getting this installed on something like Herorku for free, and then use an api from the languages they already know.

THANKS IN ADVANCE

Yeah, it might be good idea to add rest api. I'll do some research in this area @villanus.

@villanus

thanks

I'd vote to close this with a "nah, not worth bothering." For casual users, they can use freegeoip.net for free, and if they need more than 10,000 queries per hour, they can deploy their own copy of the source.

It's not hard whip out an Express based API that adds a few API endpoints and serves the GeoIP data via AJAX. But shouldn't such a thing be it's own project that depends on this one?

Yeah, same opinion probably. Closing.
