country-ip-spoofer

A fully typed Node.js module that generates a random IP address that is associated with a desired country.

This module is especially useful if you use an API that requires an IP address to be passed to it in order to realize the country of a user, and you want to spoof the user country.

Important notes

This module leverages the IP2Location™ data set, which is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0.
As such, the module does not package the actual data, and you are responsible to load it to the module while not infringing with said licence.

  • For better results, refresh your data set once in a while.

Installation

npm install country-ip-spoofer

Or

yarn add country-ip-spoofer

Setup

Before you begin, you need to prepare the data set to be used by the module (only perform once).

Please download the IPV4 CSV file from IP2Location™ and run the following temp script (install the csv package if it is missing - you can delete it later):

import {createDataTable} from 'country-ip-spoofer/dataTableCreator';
 
const csfFile = 'path to the downloaded csv file';
const outputFile = 'path to output the data set';
 
createDataTable(csfFile, outputFile)
    .then(() => {
        console.log('done');
    });

Then save the output file to your project.

Usage

import * as request from 'request'; // We only use this to test the resulting ips
import { getIpOfCountry, setDataTable, DataTable } from 'country-ip-spoofer';
import * as dataSet from 'path to your json data set form previous step';
 
// Load the data set before yuo begin
setDataTable(dataSet as DataTable);
 
const countryCode = 'AU';
 
const ip = getIpOfCountry(countryCode);
console.log(ip); // prints '103.246.130.28' for example
 
// Test out the ip location
const requestParams = {
    url: `http://ip-api.com/json/${ip}`,
    json: true,
};
request(requestParams, (err, result) => {
    const realCountryCode = result.toJSON().body.countryCode;
    console.log(realCountryCode); // Should print 'AU'
    console.log(realCountryCode === countryCode ? 'Success' : 'Fail'); // Should print 'Success'
});
