Simple alternative to django-cities
django-cities-light – Simple django-cities alternative
This add-on provides models and commands to import country, region/state, and city data in your database.
The data is pulled from GeoNames and contains cities, regions/states and countries.
Spatial query support is not required by this application.
This application is very simple and is useful if you want to make a simple address book for example. If you intend to build a fully featured spatial database, you should use django-cities.
pip install django-cities-light
Or the development version:
pip install -e firstname.lastname@example.org:yourlabs/django-cities-light.git#egg=cities_light
Add cities_light to your INSTALLED_APPS.

Finally, populate your database with command:
This command is well documented, consult the help with:
./manage.py help cities_light
