GeoIP2 Reader for Go

Build Status GoDoc

This library reads MaxMind GeoLite2 and GeoIP2 databases.

This library is built using the Go maxminddb reader. All data for the database record is decoded using this library. If you only need several fields, you may get superior performance by using maxminddb's Lookup directly with a result struct that only contains the required fields. (See example_test.go in the maxminddb repository for an example of this.)

Installation

go get github.com/oschwald/geoip2-golang

Usage

See GoDoc for documentation and examples.

Example

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"github.com/oschwald/geoip2-golang"
	"log"
	"net"
)

func main() {
	db, err := geoip2.Open("GeoIP2-City.mmdb")
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}
	defer db.Close()
	// If you are using strings that may be invalid, check that ip is not nil
	ip := net.ParseIP("81.2.69.142")
	record, err := db.City(ip)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}
	fmt.Printf("Portuguese (BR) city name: %v\n", record.City.Names["pt-BR"])
	if len(record.Subdivisions) > 0 {
		fmt.Printf("English subdivision name: %v\n", record.Subdivisions[0].Names["en"])
	}
	fmt.Printf("Russian country name: %v\n", record.Country.Names["ru"])
	fmt.Printf("ISO country code: %v\n", record.Country.IsoCode)
	fmt.Printf("Time zone: %v\n", record.Location.TimeZone)
	fmt.Printf("Coordinates: %v, %v\n", record.Location.Latitude, record.Location.Longitude)
	// Output:
	// Portuguese (BR) city name: Londres
	// English subdivision name: England
	// Russian country name: Великобритания
	// ISO country code: GB
	// Time zone: Europe/London
	// Coordinates: 51.5142, -0.0931
}
