Buildpack for the free MaxMind GeoLite2 database packages.
Add the buildpack:
heroku buildpacks:add https://github.com/physiovia/heroku-buildpack-maxmind-geolite2
Decide which package (City or Country) you need and set up your environment accordingly:
heroku config:add MAXMIND_DB_NAME=City # or heroku config:add MAXMIND_DB_NAME=Country
Add your licence key, which is now a requirement for downloading even the free databases.
heroku config:add MAXMIND_KEY=Your-License-key
Then deploy and start using the database.
