Get IP address location info from command line

The Linux command line is a great tool. Today I’ll like to share a method to get Geographical IP information with one command, using curl and the tool of ipinfo.io.

It is as easy to use this command:

$ curl ipinfo.io/<IP Address>

Here you have an example:

You will have these parameters:

  • IP
  • City
  • Region
  • Country
  • Loc (Coordinates)
  • Org
  • Postal
  • Timezone

And that’s all. If you want more information about an IP address, you could visit the website of ipinfo.io, and you’ll get some more information and tools.
