Python 2.7+, 3.2+


  1. This version of pysyge works with Sypex Geo DB version 2.2 or above.
The structure of a dictionary returned by GeoLocator.get_location() was preserved in a backward compatible manner as much as possible, yet it’s advised to update your code to use data from info sub dictionary.
  1. This version of pysyge works with UTF-8 Sypex Geo Databases. Texts returned by pysyge are UTF-8.


Download Geo IP database file from (example below uses SxGeoCityMax.dat file).

Application sample:

# Import all we need from pysyge module.
from pysyge.pysyge import GeoLocator, MODE_BATCH, MODE_MEMORY

# Create GeoLocator object to access API from 'SxGeoCityMax.dat' using fast memory mode.
geodata = GeoLocator('SxGeoCityMax.dat', MODE_BATCH | MODE_MEMORY)

# Let's get some meta information.
print('DB version %s (%s)' % (geodata.get_db_version(), geodata.get_db_date()))

# Request geo information for IP address. Getting detailed information, including region info.
location = geodata.get_location('', detailed=True)

# Print out some lyrics. Most interesting data is under `info` in `city`, `country` and `region` dictionaries
print('%s (%s) calling. All the circuits are busy.' % (location['info]['city']['name_en'], location['info']['country']['iso']))
