I know this tool from Sukka’s blog here. With this tool, we can search IP geo info with local data(downloaded when first running).

114.514.191.8 114.5.1.4 [印度尼西亚]

Besides the “nali” command line tool, the “nali-cli” utility also has the following features:

  1. nali-dig

  2. nali-nslookup

  3. nali-ping

  4. nali-tracepath

  5. nali-traceroute

Note that, the 5 commands are just wrappers of bind(dnsutils). So make sure you have the original package installed before running them.

“nali-cli” is written in “Node.js”. The source code can be found here which is worth reading.
