So Devs on DCsquare decided to take on another open source project. A simple API that lets you get a list of states, cities and local government areas in Nigeria. We attempted to make the most comprehensive dump of this data as it is not readily available anywhere. It’s in JSON. It’s made for the developer who wants to make a simple drop down list of Nigerian locations for any app in any language. (It’s also not limited to that developer’s use case).
It’s built in Python with Flask using Parse as a data store.
