Hello World, This is our second PH launch 🚀The community is so helpful, that it motivates us in creating new products. Here is https://eyep.dev, the coolest way to get your IP. 😎Minimal Design 🙅No Ads 👩‍💻Developer Friendly 1️⃣Single Purpose
@lakshmantgld Hey, kudos for your second launch on PH. Could you share the dev docs?
@themohitmadan Thank you Mohit! We get the IP's location data from https://ipstack.com
Love it! Can you share a little bit on how did you make it happen? :)
@tsehori Glad, you liked it. So, here is the tech stack: 🌐IP and its location by https://ipstack.com/ 🗺️Map by Google Map & styled by https://snazzymaps.com/ 💻Frontend - Vanilla JS & Backend - AWS Lambda
@tsehori @lakshmantgld What are you doing in the AWS back end? Couldn't this be fully static?
@tsehori @transmissions_0001 Most of the IP Geolocation API's do not expose in `https` in their free plan. So had to come up with AWS Lambda which will invoke the http API and serve the response to the static website in `https`. Hopefully, when people love it and we get more hits everyday, then we will upgrade to the paid plan and eventually remove the AWS Lambda.
@tsehori @lakshmantgld Ah, I've done the same with many of my projects lmao! Here's an upvote for the clever solution ;)
@lakshmantgld https://ipgeolocation.io provides https endpoints for free users. It provides 30K/month requests in its free plan. It has relatively better accuracy than IPStack and its paid plans are more economical than IPStack.
Cool product. Only that it identified my location wrongly - in a totally different state. Heading to IPstack got the state right but the location wrong still. IP address is still correct though.
@clarencewee Ah! I am working on it. So Ipstack gives region & city. Have to concatenate both. Thanks for the heads up!
@lakshmantgld @sureshmurali29 Mass keetiteenga! Nice to see namma oor makkal topping on PH!
Great work! Sometimes even if it's a repeat of what already exists even a little bit of lipstick does wonders for me. I would love to see a proper Favorites icon and Touch Bar Icon (both Mac) so it can look pretty in my Favorites.
Thank you @onelargetea for checking it out. What you said was exactly running in our minds, when we started working on eyep.dev. We will work on a sleek favorite & touch bar icon :)
@onelargetea As you wished, we updated fav & touch bar icon. Hope you like it 😀
