Continents & countries: ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code, name, ISO 639-1 languages, capital and currency, native name, calling codes. Lists are available in JSON, CSV and SQL formats. Also, contains separate JSON files with additional country Emoji flags data.

Version 2.0: Breaking changes

This version changes a lot in the data structures, and placement of the files. So, if your projects depend on the old structure — specify previous versions, <2.0.0.

Installation

Package is available via:

  • NPM npm install countries-list
  • Composer / Packagist composer require annexare/countries-list
  • Bower bower install countries

Usage

Module exports continents, countries, languages, languagesAll and functions:

  • getEmojiFlag(countryCode), where countryCode is alpha-2 String
  • getUnicode(emoji), where emoji is alpha-2 emoji flag String

Built files are in the ./dist directory. The ./data directory contains source data.

The consistent data is available from ./dist/data.* files (JSON, SQL).

Note: ES5 UMD build is here: ./dist/index.es5.min.js.

Note: Country item languages field is an Array in JSON files to easily count and match items with a Language item. But currency and phone calling codes may be a comma-separated String.

Note: Languages list only contains languages used in Countries data. Full list of known languages is exported as languagesAll from ./dist/languages.all.json.
