gem build maxmind-db.spec gem install ./maxmind-db-xxx.gem
require 'maxmind/db' reader = MaxMind::DB.new('GeoIP2-City.mmdb', mode: MaxMind::DB::MODE_MEMORY) record = reader.get('220.127.116.11') if record.nil? puts '18.104.22.168 was not found in the database' else puts record['country']['iso_code'] puts record['country']['names']['en'] end reader.close
