geocoder.ip('me').country returns None

See original GitHub issue

Thanks for a great package that’s worked in my system, Mycodo, for over a year without an issue.

Recently (past week or so), I’ve been having the country query return None, from systems around the world.

import geocoder
$ python ./

I haven’t dug enough into geocoder to know exactly how to debug this.

Is this a known issue? Is there anything I can do to help?

@kizniche There’s two providers that offer reverse IP lookups, maxmind & ipinfo. When you use geocoder.ip('me') it’s actually using for it’s internal requests.

Seems like geocoder.ip('me') is broken if you provide ‘me’ or blank.

>>> geocoder.ip('me')
>>> g.debug()
    "status": "Cannot GET //json\n", 
    "status_code": 400, 
    "provider": "ipinfo", 
    "ok": false, 
    "encoding": "utf-8"

Strange that it use to work before, maybe it was always a “bug” however their server accepted that HTTP request.

Solution: Change geocoder.ip('me') HTTP request from =>
