You can see the live demo of application on my website here

 

 

 

Get Started

 

 

 

Now to get started we need to building a new node.js app by executing the below command

 

npm init -y

 

This will create the empty package.json file for your node.js project

 

And now you need to install the below libraries by using the below command

 

npm i express

 

npm i ipware

 

npm i offline-geo-from-ip

 

After executing all these commands you just need to make an index.js file and copy paste the following code

 

index.js

 

 

var get_ip = require('ipware')().get_ip;
 app.use(function(req, res, next) {
     var ip_info = get_ip(req);
     console.log(ip_info);
     // { clientIp: '127.0.0.1', clientIpRoutable: false }
     next();
 });

So first of all we are importing the ipware library for getting the ip address of user and then we are passing this middleware function to every request which is coming to the website and in this we are getting the public ip address of the user and storing it inside the ip_info variable

 

Now we will make use of offline-geo-from-ip library to get further details about the ip address

 

var geoIP = require('offline-geo-from-ip');
 
console.log(geoIP.allData('199.188.195.120'));

 

 

 

 

 

Now as you can see if you execute this it gets further information of the ip address such as country,continent,state and city and also the location such as latitude,longitude and time_zone
