  • Virtualenv (pip3 install virtualenv)
  1. Clone the git repo: git clone https://github.com/chapinb/chickadee.git
  2. Create your virtual environment virtualenv -p python3 venv3 and activate it (source venv3/bin/activate)
  3. Install dependencies: pip install .
  4. Run chickadee --help to get started.

Windows

Requirements:

  • Python 3+, installed on your path
  • Virtualenv (pip.exe install virtualenv)
  1. Clone the git repo: git clone https://github.com/chapinb/chickadee.git
  2. Create your virtual environment virtualenv -p python3 venv3 and activate it (source venv3/Scripts/activate.bat)
  3. Install dependencies: pip install .
  4. Run chickadee --help to get started.

Usage

The below shows the help information for using Chickadee. It can accept any of the below formats:

  • Loose IP addresses (either a single IP or a comma separated list)
  • IPv4 or IPv6
  • A path to a plaintext file containing IP addresses (even if they are among other data)
  • A path to a gzip'd plaintext file (not an archive of multiple plaintext files)
  • A path to a folder containing plaintext or gzip'd plaintext data
$ chickadee --help
usage: chickadee [-h] [-f FIELDS] [-t {json,jsonl,csv}] [-w FILENAME.JSON]
                 [-s] [--lang {en,de,es,pt-BR,fr,ja,zh-CN,ru}] [-p] [-v] [-V]
                 [-l LOG]
                 [data [data ...]]

Yet another GeoIP resolution tool.

Will use the free rate limited ip-api.com service for resolution.
Please set an environment variable named CHICKADEE_API_KEY with the
value of your API key to enabled unlimited requests with the
commercial API

positional arguments:
  data                  Either an IP address, comma delimited list of IP
                        addresses, or path to a file or folder containing files
                        to check for IP address values. Currently supported file
                        types: plain text (ie logs, csv, json), gzipped plain
                        text, xlsx (must be xlsx extension). Can accept plain
                        text data as stdin. (default: <_io.TextIOWrapper
                        name='<stdin>' mode='r' encoding='UTF-8'>)

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -f FIELDS, --fields FIELDS
                        Comma separated fields to query (default:
                        query,count,as,org,isp,continent,country,regionName,
                        city,district,zip,mobile,proxy,reverse,lat,lon,
                        timezone,status,message)
  -t {json,jsonl,csv}, --output-format {json,jsonl,csv}
                        Output format (default: jsonl)
  -w FILENAME.JSON, --output-file FILENAME.JSON
                        Path to file to write output (default:
                        <_io.TextIOWrapper name='<stdout>' mode='w'
                        encoding='UTF-8'>)
  -n, --no-resolve      Only extract IP addresses, don't resolve. (default: True)
  -s, --single          Use the significantly slower single item API. Adds
                        reverse DNS. (default: False)
  --lang {en,de,es,pt-BR,fr,ja,zh-CN,ru}

Example

To resolve 8.8.8.8 and 1.1.1.1. The jq tool isn't a requirement, but is a great utility for formatting and querying any JSON data.

$ chickadee 8.8.8.8,1.1.1.1 | jq '.'
{
  "country": "United States",
  "regionName": "Virginia",
  "city": "Ashburn",
  "district": "",
  "zip": "20149",
  "lat": 39.0438,
  "lon": -77.4874,
  "org": "Google LLC",
  "as": "AS15169 Google LLC",
  "mobile": false,
  "proxy": false,
  "query": "8.8.8.8",
  "count": 1,
  "isp": null,
  "continent": null,
  "reverse": null,
  "timezone": null,
  "status": null,
  "message": null
}
{
  "country": "Australia",
  "regionName": "New South Wales",
  "city": "Sydney",
  "district": "",
  "zip": "1001",
  "lat": -33.8688,
  "lon": 151.209,
  "org": "",
  "as": "AS13335 Cloudflare, Inc.",
  "mobile": false,
  "proxy": false,
  "query": "1.1.1.1",
  "count": 1,
  "isp": null,
  "continent": null,
  "reverse": null,
  "timezone": null,
  "status": null,
  "message": null
}

Example of using the custom fields. Available field names are at: http://ip-api.com/docs/api:json

$ chickadee 8.8.8.8,1.1.1.1 -t jsonl -f as,proxy
{"as": "AS15169 Google LLC", "proxy": false}
{"as": "AS13335 Cloudflare, Inc.", "proxy": false}

Known bugs

Below are a list of known bugs. Please report any new bugs identified or submit a PR to patch any of the below or ones you found on your own. No one is perfect :)

  • IPv6 addresses expressed in expanded form in the source document are not properly deduplicated against discovered IPv6 addresses in compressed form.
  • While you can provide multiple input files in the same instance, the IPs will only be distinct to a single input item. For example, if you provide a file and folder as two inputs to the same invocation all IPs within a single file will be deduped, then separately all IPs within the files in the directory will be deduped. This means you may have duplicate resolutions in the same output in this case.
  • JSON and CSV output will show column/field names even if a value is not present. Please enter an issue if this does not support your usecase.
