  • Fetch Geo Data from any IP Address in React
    1 project | | 13 Mar 2024
    You need an access token from ipinfo to access their API. Go to and sign up for an account. After signing up, you'll get an access token. Keep it handy as we'll need it in the next step.

  • Live proxy and VPN detection
    1 project | | 31 Dec 2023
    Mullvad VPN location set to Frankfurt germany

    Using the us east test server:

    Proxy Score: 10/100 - Very likely not a Proxy

    VPN Score: 0/55 - Very likely not a VPN

    Using german test server:

    Proxy Score: 10/100 - Very likely not a Proxy

    VPN Score: 30/55 - Very likely a VPN

    The thing that changed between both tests was the flow latencies vs ping latencies check. Clicking on more info it said: "flow variance too large in relation to avg flow: 0.6937484181219945"

    I guess it works kinda, but not very consistent.

    But e.g. reveals immediately that this IP is a VPN IP address.

    17 projects | | 1 Dec 2023 | Various Roles | Remote (Anywhere) | Fulltime / Contract |

    IPinfo is a leading provider of IP address data. Our API handles almost 100 billion requests a month, and we also license our data for use in many products and services you might have used. We started as a side project back in 2013, offering a free geolocation API, and we've since bootstrapped ourselves to a profitable business with a global team of over 20, and grown our data offerings to include geolocation, IP to company, carrier detection, and VPN detection. Our customers include T-Mobile, Nike, DataDog, DemandBase, Clearbit and many more.

    We're looking for exceptional and ambitious people to join our team. The main role we're hiring for currently is a Product Manager - ideally with SaaS/DaaS experience, and a technical understanding of our products / services. Apply here:

    We're always on the look out to strong software or data engineers with an internet measuremenet / analysis background to join our team too. Any questions about the roles or IPinfo feel free to reach out to me directly at [email protected]

  • ROS 2 Iron Irwini Release
    2 projects | | 23 May 2023
    > Especially a tool like RViz is always missing. And in many many robotics video I see (of a moderately complex robot), there's ROS's RViz on some screen.

    I would love the future robotics development stack to be more modular, so that (for example) future middleware solutions don't need to also bundle their own visualization software. This was direct inspiration for creating Foxglove Studio[0] for visualization and MCAP[1] for logging - both work great with ROS, or equally well without it.

    It's a common misconception that you need a ML or robotics PhD to work in the field. There are plenty of frontend & backend web engineering, data engineering, and infrastructure/devops roles available at robotics companies - you don't need to be a domain expert.

    For example, at Foxglove[0] we are building open source web-based visualization and data management for robotics (shameless plug: currently hiring).


  • Understanding a Small ROS bag file
    1 project | /r/ROS | 7 Nov 2022
    You can use the rosbag commandline-tool to figure out all of this: rosbag info for example can give you some of the type/number of messages information. For more complex stuff, you could use to visualize and inspect rosbags
  • Ask HN: What interesting problems are you working on? ( 2022 Edition)

    Web-based data visualization for robotics and self-driving. Robotics is such an interesting industry, and we're only scratching the surface of what new tools are needed.

    Try it live here (hit "view sample data"):

    And it's open source!

    Shameless plug - we're hiring:

  • Recording your JSON data to MCAP, a file format that support multiple serialization formats
    1 project | /r/robotics | 20 Jul 2022
