Django app introducing a Context Processor that adds users location information to the context.
To activate, add country_block.context_processors.addgeoip to your CONTEXT_MODIFIERS. This will give you a user_country variable in your context and a country variable in the user's session with the user's 2 character ISO country code, and an in_country boolean set to True is the country matches one of the allowed countries.
Local Settings options
LOCATION : a unique 2 char string that identifies the server's location
COUNTRY_BLOCK_DEBUG_COUNTRY : sets the user_country equal to this value for all users, letting you test as if you are in this country. False by default.
COUNTRY_BLOCK_DEBUG_REGION : sets the region_code equal to this value for all users, letting you test as if you are in this region. False by default.
Database Settings options (country_block.Settings model)
location : This is a unique 2 char value that corresponds to the LOCATION value in the local settings
free_geo_ip_enabled : Use the freegeoip.net to determine the geography of the user's IP
maxmind_enabled : Use the https://geoip.maxmind.com/a service to determine the geography of the user's IP. If this is True and free_geo_ip_enabled is also True, the context processor will try the freegeoip.net service first and will only try the Maxmind service if freegeoip.net fails.
maxmind_local_db_enabled : Use a local Maxmind database instead of the https://geoip.maxmind.com/a service. Must also have maxmind_enabled set to True.
allowed_countries : A M2M relationship of all Countrys that are allowed for the server's location
staff_user_country : The Country that all django staff users will be assigned
local_ip_user_country : The Country that all local IP users will be assigned
maxmind_license_key : The license key for the Maxmind service. A value is required if maxmind_enabled is True and maxmind_local_db_enabled is False. This gets sent over as the 'l' parameter in the payload to the https://geoip.maxmind.com/a service.
