Geolocation -- hostip.info code for rails


#1

Hi there,

I’ve put code together for using the hostip.info data under Rails.
Hostip.info is a community-based project to geolocate IP addresses,
making the database freely available. This database allows to translate
IP addresses to city/country/longitude and latitude. It can be
downloaded from the hostip.info website. They have PHP code so far to
make any use of it.

My code can be found under

http://sugarmotor.net:8080

To test directly go to http://sugarmotor.net:8080/places/ip

It’s a simple start. If I get suggestions for changes I’ll apply them
before sending the code over to hostip.info. I don’t know how to get rid
of the %20, %2C etc. for some city names; these come with the database.

Please let me know.

See you

Stephan

I’v got an application error on your testing URL though.

Thanks for all the test visits from all continents.

As a result I fixed a silly bug and updated the code at

http://sugarmotor.net:8080

Hopefully it’s ok now.
