Project description

**Author:** Jacob Magnusson. [Follow me on Twitter](

## About

This is a simple Flask extension for pygeoip. Not yet thoroughly tested, but has been working great for me so far.

## Installation

Install using `pip`...

pip install Flask-GeoIP

...or clone the project from github.

git clone

## Configuration

The GeoIP file that you want to use needs to be set in your config:

GEOIP_FILEPATH = '/path/to/geoip.dat'

You can change the caching method (default is 'STANDARD') that is used
by pygeoip:


Then in the code you do:

from flask.ext.geoip import GeoIP
app = Flask(__name__)
geoip = GeoIP(app)
country = geoip.country_name_by_addr('')

Or if using a factory function for creating your app:

from flask.ext.geoip import GeoIP
geoip = GeoIP()
app = create_app('/path/to/')
country = geoip.country_name_by_addr('')
