Stores the GeoIP databases in Redis and gives it a simple way to lookup IPs and map them to countries/country codes.
Get your GeoIP country CSVs from http://www.maxmind.com/app/geolite.
Trifle supports both the IPV4 and IPV6 databases.
Loading the GeoIP databases from disk is slow, and doing that for every request is a pain. Trifle keeps your GeoIP database in memory and makes it easy to query.
Install the gem
gem install trifle
or add it to your Gemfile and bundle
# Initialize trifle = Trifle.new(Redis.new) # Load data from file trifle.load filename: "file.csv" # or files trifle.load filenames: ["file1.csv", "file2.csv"] # or directly as an array trifle.load data: preloaded_array
Additionally you can specify your own Redis key to store the Trifle in:
trifle = Trifle.new(Redis.new, key: "foobar")
You can also load the Trifle from the command line:
trifle redis://127.0.0.1:6379/0 file1.csv file2.csv
# Initialize trifle = Trifle.new(Redis.new) # Lookup for existing data trifle.find "126.96.36.199" # => ["HK", "Hong Kong"] # Lookup for missing data trifle.find "192.168.1.1" # => nil
