[ANN] ZipTastic Action

There’s a new service (free, US-only for the moment) that allows you to look up the City, State, and Country from a Zip (postal) code. The service is from ElevenBaseTwo, and the details are here: http://daspecster.github.com/ziptastic/index.html

Naturally, I wrote an Action for that: http://actionsforge.com/actions/view/253-ziptastic

How about using http://www.zippopotam.us/ to do the same for us across the pond?

Just when you have a spare minute! :wink:

Oh, thank you so much. This looks so much more useful than ZipTastic, and it uses a very similar API, so there’s probably only minimal plumbing changes needed. The only thing is, now I have to figure out how to get the desired country code, because they make you hit a different end-point for each country.

So two ideas:

  1. For an international form, an Action that builds a picker of all the available countries in the format that Zippopatom.us likes, then you just apply the same ZipTastic method to the page (or maybe it just does it all from the country picker Action).

  2. For a one-country form, a modified ZipTastic-style form that includes a country picker.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention!
