Project description

Helps download and keep updated maxmind’s geoip db required for django GeoIP

Django versions 1.11+ are supported.

Why and when to use?

If you don’t mind installing and configuring official geoipupdate on your server then I’d recommend to use it. If you want a simple method to download db files via django command or schedule updates using celery then this app is the way to go.


Using pip:

pip install django-geoipdb-loader

Add the app to INSTALLED_APPS and configure GEOIP_PATH:


GEOIP_PATH = '/myproject/geoip'


Run download_geoipdb to download geoip files.

In order to automatically update the geoip files you can use provided celery task:

    'update-geoipdb': {
        'task': 'geoipdb_loader.tasks.update_geoipdb',
        'schedule': crontab(day_of_week=6),

or crontab:

* * * * 6 download_geoipdb
