Logo of the company that offer geoip database
Let say you want to check 10000 IP to find a location, states, timezones, etc. So you can use command whois and automate and it would take some minutes. But what if you want to do faster, less then 1 second?
Build one CLI tool to check all IP but using the Maxmind geoip database.
First, we need to install:
virtualenv -p python3 .
pip3 install python-geoip-python3
pip3 install python-geoip-geolite2
Then we could use ip.txt file with content:
And finally - the code that would help us to run this adventure:
from geoip import geolite2
if len(sys.argv) < 2:
print("missing file with ip")
filepath = sys.argv
with open(filepath) as fp:
line = "something"
line = fp.readline().strip()
if not line:
match = geolite2.lookup(line)
print(line + " " + match.country + " " + match.continent + " " + match.timezone + " " + str(match.location) + " " + str(match.location))
Output would be something like this:
python3 checkip.py ip.txt
126.96.36.199 US NA America/Los_Angeles 37.386 -122.0838
188.8.131.52 CN AS None 35.0 105.0
One golden advice run update after some time for the geoip Maxmind database.
