I am happy to announce that IPinator is finally live on the App Store. It’s a utility app and Notification Center widget that geocodes your external IP address and displays it alongside your local one for easy copy-pasting during local development, VPN setup, etc.

Application window and Notification Center extension.

IPinator is written in Swift and uses Argo for JSON parsing and Llamakit for Result. The code-base is straightforward, save for one limitation related to the inability to display an MKMapView in a Today extension. The solution I came up with involved generating a map screenshot and passing it to the extension as an NSImage.

If you’d like to write about IPinator, feel free to drop a line for a promo code.
