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.
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.
npm install country-ip-spoofer
yarn add country-ip-spoofer
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):
Then save the output file to your project.
