Self-hosted Geo to Timezone service

For the VALIS project I needed a geo to timezone service, specifically to pick up a reasonable time to send chat messages.

A geo to timezone service is a simple service to implement, especially since the heavy stuff 💪 has been already implemented by better human beings 🙏 (the link above also lists the libraries).

And so here it is: geo2tz

Here is how to run and how to interact with it :
