Installation

Add webpatser/laravel-countries to composer.json.

"webpatser/laravel-countries": "dev-master"

Run composer update to pull down the latest version of Country List.

Edit app/config/app.php and add the provider and filter

'providers' => [
    'Webpatser\Countries\CountriesServiceProvider',
]

Now add the alias.

'aliases' => [
    'Countries' => 'Webpatser\Countries\CountriesFacade',
]

Model

You can start by publishing the configuration. This is an optional step, it contains the table name and does not need to be altered. If the default name countries suits you, leave it. Otherwise run the following command

$ php artisan vendor:publish

Next generate the migration file:

$ php artisan countries:migration

It will generate the <timestamp>_setup_countries_table.php migration and the CountriesSeeder.php seeder. To make sure the data is seeded insert the following code in the seeds/DatabaseSeeder.php

//Seed the countries
$this->call('CountriesSeeder');
$this->command->info('Seeded the countries!'); 

You may now run it with the artisan migrate command:

$ php artisan migrate --seed

After running this command the filled countries table will be available
