Project description

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

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. By default GeoIP2 files are used for django 1.9+ and GeoIP files for django 1.8. You can override db version in settings:

GEOIPDB_VERSION = 2  # 1 or 2

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
