Plack::Middleware::GeoIP - Find country and city of origin of a web request

SYNOPSIS

  # with Plack::Middleware::RealIP
  enable 'Plack::Middleware::RealIP',
      header => 'X-Forwarded-For',
      trusted_proxy => [ qw(192.168.1.0/24 192.168.2.1) ];
  enable 'Plack::Middleware::GeoIP',
      GeoIPDBFile => [ '/path/to/GeoIP.dat', '/path/to/GeoIPCity.dat' ],

DESCRIPTION

Plack::Middleware::GeoIP is a loose port of the Apache module mod_geoip. It uses Geo::IP to lookup the country and city that a web request originated from.

All requests are looked up and GEOIP_* variables are added to PSGI environment hash. For improved performance, you may want to only enable this middleware for specific URL's.

The following PSGI environment variables are set by this middleware:

GeoIP Country Edition:

GEOIP_COUNTRY_CODE, GEOIP_COUNTRY_CODE3, GEOIP_COUNTRY_NAME, GEOIP_CONTINENT_CODE

GeoIP City Edition:

GEOIP_COUNTRY_CODE, GEOIP_COUNTRY_CODE3, GEOIP_COUNTRY_NAME, GEOIP_CONTINENT_CODE, GEOIP_LATITUDE, GEOIP_LONGITUDE, GEOIP_TIME_ZONE, GEOIP_REGION, GEOIP_REGION_NAME, GEOIP_CITY, GEOIP_POSTAL_CODE, GEOIP_METRO_CODE, GEOIP_AREA_CODE
