This is the pure Node API for reading MaxMind DB files. MaxMind DB is a binary file format that stores data indexed by IP address subnets (IPv4 or IPv6).

WARNING

  • .open(Sync) needs to be called once before abusing .getGeoData(Sync)
  • this is version 0.1.0! the API is not compitable with 0.0.*
  • Most IP's don't seem to have city data in the GeoLite2 City database. Only american cities are present, if your IP is american but not returning a city try to replace the last number of your IP by a 0 (only with a IPv4 address. for IPv6 address it doesn't seem to work).

Install

npm i maxmind-db-reader
