Installation

While this script should work under Python 2 and 3, using Python 3 for your OS is strongly recommended.

On Debian or Ubuntu systems, run:

$ sudo apt-get install python3-pip

Python 3 installers for Windows and macOS can be found at https://www.python.org/downloads/

To install or upgrade to the latest stable release of checkdmarc on macOS or Linux, run

$ sudo pip3 -U install simplegeoip2

Or, install the latest development release directly from GitHub:

$ sudo pip3 -U install git+https://github.com/domainaware/simplegeoip2.git

Note to Windows users

On Windows, pip3 is pip, regardless if you installed Python 2 or 3. So on Windows, simply substitute pip as an administrator in place of sudo pip3, in the above commands.
