Sypex Geo - product for location by IP address.

Sypex Geo use local compact binary database file and works very quickly. For more information visit: http://sypexgeo.net/
This is extension for Yii2 framework that makes it easy to deal with Sypex Geo.
Unfortunately original version of Sypex Geo does not support Composer installation, so we have to include it into this extension.
First of all, you have to download desired database from the http://sypexgeo.net/ website and place it somewhere on your server.
There are two classes in this extension.
Sypexgeo - this is the component that can be used to retrive Geo information based on IP address. This component incapsulates calls to the SxGeo methods.
You can use it as an application component:
// config.php [ 'components' => [ 'sypexGeo' => [ 'class' => 'omnilight\sypexgeo\SypexGeo', 'database' => '@app/data/SxGeoCity.dat', ] ] ] // somewhere in your code $city = Yii::$app->sypexGeo->getCity($ip);
Also you can create instance by yourself:
$sypexGeo = new omnilight\sypexgeo\Sypexgeo([ 'database' => '@app/data/SxGeoCity.dat', ]); $city = $sypexGeo->getCity($ip);
GeoBehavior - behavior that can be attached to the
yii\web\Request or it's children and this class adds methods
to simplify getting Geo information for current request.
// config.php [ 'components' => [ 'request' => [ 'as sypexGeo' => [ 'class' => 'omnilight\sypexgeo\GeoBehavior', // It is not required to define property sypexGeo if you have sypexGeo component defined // in your application 'sypexGeo' => [ 'database' => '@app/data/SxGeoCity.dat', ] ] ] ], ] // In your code $city = Yii::$app->request->getCity();
