The only thing you need to do to make this work is adding this package as a dependency to your project:

composer require brightnucleus/country-codes

Basic Usage

On each composer install or composer update, a check will be made to see whether there's a new version of the database available. If there is, that new version is downloaded.

Usage is pretty straight-forward. Just use one of the two provided static methods:


use BrightNucleus\CountryCodes\Country;

// Get the name from an ISO 3166 country code.
$name = Country::getNameFromCode( 'US' ); // Returns 'United States'.

// Get the ISO 3166 country code from a country name.
$code = Country::getCodeFromName( 'United States' ); // Returns 'US'.
