@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 ;)
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!
