Which ruby geoip ruby wrapper has up2date and can be used? (for commercial library)
I am trying to get below github repo in my application
I tried adding it like
gem "geoip", :git => "git://github.com/mtodd/geoip.git"
Could not find gem 'geoip (>= 0) ruby' in git://github.com/mtodd/geoip.git (at master). Source does not contain any versions of 'geoip (>= 0) ruby'
Is there a ruby skin for GeoIP compatible with LATEST GEOIP? Ive searched for a very long time for one, the one above seems to be compatible with 1.4.7 and up, but I cant install it, any other suggestion? thank!

I know this was posted a few years ago, but I was recently unable to find a good modern stone for this. I found Geoip2 from YotpoLtd .
In my Gemfile
Setting / Setting
Geoip2.configure do |conf| # Mandatory conf.license_key = 'Your MaxMind License Key' conf.user_id = 'Your MaxMind User Id' # Optional conf.host = 'geoip.maxmind.com' # Or any host that you would like to work with conf.base_path = '/geoip/v2.0' # Or any other version of this API conf.parallel_requests = 5 # Or any other amount of parallel requests that you would like to use end
data = Geoip2.omni('0.0.0.0') #this call is synchronous
* note: I believe you can replace "omni" with the product level name: city, country, etc.
Errors If there is an error, the returned hash will have an error object, so just check for its existence
if data.error # error handling else #still might want to check for data existence ( if data ) #access object as you will data.city.names.en data.postal.code end
For more information on the returned hash, see the MaxMind Web Services Documentation
