DESCRIPTION

Plack::Middleware::GeoIP2 is a version of Plack::Middleware::GeoIP using the more recent GeoIP2 library from MaxMind.

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:
