Developers using Postcodes.io

I have just discovered https://postcodes.io, a free geolocation api for the UK based on open data. You even can reverse lookup geographic data by placename. This looks incredibly cool.

Just tagged version 1.5 of LaravelPostcodes, an API wrapper around http://postcodes.io - which is great for validating UK postcodes, and pulling back address parts on a postcode.

Listening to @elliottrichmond @WPBhamUK this evening and how have I never come across the http://postcodes.io API before? Looks great.
