Simple IP information webapp

Project Description
ip\_info
=======

Really simple flask app that provides you info about where you're connecting
from. Similar to sites like whatismyip.com, but without all the clutter and
crap.

Dependencies
------------
You need the python libraries flask, whelk, publicsuffix and GeoIP. These can
be installed with your OS' package manager or with pip. You also need a working
`whois` program on your `$PATH`.

Ubuntu users can install these packages with:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dennis/python
sudo apt-get install python-whelk python-flask python-publicsuffix python-geoip whois

Usage
-----
Using the built-in flask/werkzeug http daemon, you can quickly run it in demo mode:

python -m ip_info

I would however recommend using a wsgi daemon such as uwsgi and a proper httpd
like nginx as frontend.

Configuration examples
----------------------
Example nginx configuration:

server {
listen 80;
listen [::]:80;

root /usr/share/nginx/www;
index index.html index.htm;

server_name ip.seveas.net;

try_files $uri @uwsgi;
location @uwsgi {
include uwsgi_params;
uwsgi_pass unix:/run/uwsgi/app/ip_info/socket;
}
}


Example uwsgi configuration:

[uwsgi]
plugins = python
module = ip_info:app
env = IP_SETTINGS=/etc/ip_settings
env = HOME=/nonexistent

shared-socket = 1
chown_socket = www-data
log-reopen = 1

processes = 10
harakiri = 60
max-requests = 20
reload-on-as = 1024
auto-procname = 1
procname-prefix-spaced = ip_info

The `IP_SETTINGS` environment variable can be used to point to a configuration
file. This configuration file can be used to set any Flask setting you want.
ip\_info itself only has one setting: A `DB` variable that can point to a
custon GeoIP data file, such as the data file that contains city information.
