A Symfony Bundle for the Maxmind GeoIP2 API

Bundle for use maxmind/GeoIP2 in Symfony.

Installation

Pretty simple with Composer, run:

composer req gpslab/geoip2

Configuration

To configure auto-update the database you need to generate your personal licence key.

Steps for generate licence key

  1. Sign up for a MaxMind account (no purchase required)
  2. Login and generate a licence key
  3. Save your licence key
  4. Open download page and find your needed DB edition ID and copy value from first column.

Example configuration:

gpslab_geoip:
    # Your personal licence key
    license: 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX'

    # One of database edition IDs:
    #   GeoLite2-ASN
    #   GeoLite2-City
    #   GeoLite2-Country
    #   GeoIP2-City
    #   GeoIP2-Country
    #   GeoIP2-Anonymous-IP
    #   GeoIP2-Domain
    #   GeoIP2-ISP
    edition: 'GeoLite2-City'

Database source URL

By default, this URL is used to download a new databases https://download.maxmind.com/app/geoip_download?edition_id={edition_id}&license_key={license_key}&suffix=tar.gz

You can change this URL, for example, if you want to use a proxy to download the database. You can customize the source URL in the configuration.

gpslab_geoip:
    url: 'https://example.com/GeoLite2-City.tar.gz'

Target download path

By default, new databases downloaded in %kernel.cache_dir%/{edition_id}.mmdb, where edition_id is a character ID name from first column on download page. That is, by default, the new database will be downloaded into folder var/cache/{env}/. Keeping the database in the cache folder for each environment may not be optimal. You can choose a common directory for all environments.

gpslab_geoip:
    path: '%kernel.project_dir%/var/GeoLite2-City.mmdb'

Localization

By default, the English locale is used for GeoIP record. You can change the locale for record and declare multiple locales for fallback.

gpslab_geoip:
    locales: [ 'ru', 'en' ]

Usage

You can get GeoIP2 reader service:

use GeoIp2\Database\Reader;

// get a GeoIP2 reader
$reader = $this->get(Reader::class);
// or
//$reader = $this->get('geoip2.reader');

// get a GeoIP2 City model
$record = $reader->city('128.101.101.101');

print($record->country->isoCode . "\n"); // 'US'
print($record->country->name . "\n"); // 'United States'
print($record->country->names['zh-CN'] . "\n"); // '美国'

print($record->mostSpecificSubdivision->name . "\n"); // 'Minnesota'
print($record->mostSpecificSubdivision->isoCode . "\n"); // 'MN'

print($record->city->name . "\n"); // 'Minneapolis'

print($record->postal->code . "\n"); // '55455'

print($record->location->latitude . "\n"); // 44.9733
print($record->location->longitude . "\n"); // -93.2323

For more example see the GeoIP2 library.

Multiple databases

You can use multiple GeoIP databases in one application. Need update configuration file.

gpslab_geoip:
    databases:
        default:
            license: 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX'
            edition: 'GeoLite2-City'
        country:
            license: 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX'
            edition: 'GeoLite2-Country'
        asn:
            license: 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX'
            edition: 'GeoLite2-ASN'

Using in application:

// get a GeoIP2 reader for City database
$default_reader = $this->get('geoip2.database.default_reader');
// or
//$default_reader = $this->get(Reader::class);
// or
//$default_reader = $this->get('geoip2.reader');

// get a GeoIP2 reader for Country database
$country_reader = $this->get('geoip2.database.country_reader');

// get a GeoIP2 reader for ASN database
$asn_reader = $this->get('geoip2.database.asn_reader');

You can rename the default database.

gpslab_geoip:
    default_database: 'city'
    databases:
        asn:
            license: 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX'
            edition: 'GeoLite2-ASN'
        city:
            license: 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX'
            edition: 'GeoLite2-City'
        country:
            license: 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX'
            edition: 'GeoLite2-Country'
// get a GeoIP2 reader for City database
$default_reader = $this->get('geoip2.database.city_reader');
// or
//$default_reader = $this->get(Reader::class);
// or
//$default_reader = $this->get('geoip2.reader');

In order not to repeat the license key and locales for each database, you can specify them once.

gpslab_geoip:
    license: 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX' # global license
    locales: [ 'ru', 'en' ] # global locales
    default_database: 'city'
    databases:
        asn:
            edition: 'GeoLite2-ASN'
            locales: [ 'fr' ] # customize locales
        city:
            edition: 'GeoLite2-City'
        country:
            edition: 'GeoLite2-Country'
            license: 'YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY' # customize license

GeoIP data in client locale

If you want to show the GeoIP data to the user and show them in the user locale, then you can use the reader factory.

use GpsLab\Bundle\GeoIP2Bundle\Reader\ReaderFactory;
use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Request;
use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response;

class GeoIPController
{
    public function index(Request $request, ReaderFactory $factory): Response
    {
        $locale = $request->getLocale();
        $ip = $request->getClientIp();
    
        $reader = $factory->create('default', [$locale, 'en' /* fallback */]);
        $record = $reader->city($ip);
    
        return new Response(sprintf('You are from %s?', $record->country->name));
    }
}

Console commands

Update GeoIP database

Execute console command for update all databases:

php bin/console geoip2:update

If you use multiple databases, then for config:

gpslab_geoip:
    # ...
    databases:
        asn:
            # ...
        city:
            # ...
        country:
            # ...

You can update several databases:

php bin/console geoip2:update city country

Download GeoIP database

You can download custom database with console command:

php bin/console geoip2:download https://example.com/GeoLite2-City.tar.gz /path/to/GeoLite2-City.mmdb
