django-cities-light -- Simple django-cities alternative

This add-on provides models and commands to import country, region/state, and city data in your database.

The data is pulled from GeoNames and contains cities, regions/states and countries.

Spatial query support is not required by this application.

This application is very simple and is useful if you want to make a simple address book for example. If you intend to build a fully featured spatial database, you should use django-cities.

Requirements:

  • Python 2.7 or 3.3,
  • Django 1.4 or 1.5 or 1.6,
  • MySQL or PostgreSQL or SQLite.
  • django-south is optionnal, but recommended.

Upgrade

See CHANGELOG.

Installation

Install django-cities-light:

pip install django-cities-light

Or the development version:

pip install -e git+git@github.com:yourlabs/django-cities-light.git#egg=cities_light

Add cities_light to your INSTALLED_APPS.

Now, run syncdb, it will only create tables for models that are not disabled:

./manage.py syncdb

Note that this project supports django-south. It is recommended that you use south too else you're on your own for migrations/upgrades.

Data update

Finally, populate your database with command:

./manage.py cities_light

This command is well documented, consult the help with:

./manage.py help cities_light
