Shell script and module for easy geoip lookups.

Project description

Travis-CI codecov Latest version

Dead simple geoip package. Pretty much just a wrapper around maxminddb that automatically downloads the geolite database for you. You can either do this manually using the ‘download_latest_database’ function or let the script do it automatically when it detects no database is installed.

Can be used as a package or standalone script.


pip install simplegeoip


As a python package.

import simplegeoip

# Gets a dict with country/city information
# Downloads an updated database into simplegeoip's package directory
# Tells you when the database was last updated by maxmind
# Returns a maxminddb reader object with the database automatically downloaded.

The same as above but as a standalone script

simplegeoip update
simplegeoip info
