Customising the output

The data files provided in the dist directory include all available fields, but is also possible to build a custom version of the data with certain fields excluded.

To do this, you will first need a working PHP installation, composer and a local copy of this repository. Once you have these, open a terminal in your local version of this project's root directory and run this command to install the necessary dependencies:

composer install

After this finishes, run the following command (here we will exclude the tld field from the output, but you can exclude any field you want):

php countries.php convert --exclude-field=tld

You can also exclude multiple fields:

php countries.php convert --exclude-field=tld --exclude-field=cca2

# Or using the shorter `-x` syntax:
php countries.php convert -x tld -x cca2

If you prefer to include only some fields (this can not be combined with --exclude-field):

php countries.php convert --include-field=name --include-field=area

# or using the shorter `-i` syntax:
php countries.php convert -i=name -i=area

The generated files are put into the dist directory, but you can change this to another existing directory:

mkdir foobar
php countries.php convert --output-dir=foobar

You can also choose to only generate some of the output formats:

mkdir foobar
php countries.php convert --format=json_unescaped --format=csv

# or using the shorter `-f` syntax:
php countries.php convert -f json_unescaped -f csv
