pygeoip 0.2.7

Pure Python GeoIP API

Package Documentation

Latest Version: 0.3.1

# Pure Python GeoIP API # The API is based on [MaxMind's C-based Python API](http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/downloadable#Python-5), but the code itself is ported from the [Pure PHP GeoIP API](http://pear.php.net/package/Net_GeoIP) by Jim Winstead and Hans Lellelid.

It is mostly a drop-in replacement, except the new and open methods are gone.

Tested using tox with Python version 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3.

## Issues and contribution ##

Bug reports are done by [creating an issue on Github](https://github.com/appliedsec/pygeoip/issues). If you want to contribute you can always [create a pull request](https://github.com/appliedsec/pygeoip/pulls) for discussion and code submission.

## Installation ##

You can easily install pygeoip with setuptools:

easy_install pygeoip

## Supported Databases ##

  • Country
  • Region
  • City
  • Organization

Create your GeoIP instance with appropriate access flag. STANDARD reads data from disk when needed, MEMORY_CACHE loads database into memory on instantiation and MMAP_CACHE loads database into memory using mmap.
