iso_countries - Store countries using ISO-3166 codes
This Rails plugin makes it easy to store ISO-3166 country codes in your database, yet present full country names to your users. This plugin, unlike the repository it forked from, does not localize country names – it's just English.
The ISO standards body defines a two-character code and canonical short name for approximately 250 countries. (Don't blame me if you disagree with their list of countries. Some, such as Taiwan, are controversial, and not my fault.)
This plugin has a dependency on the gem iso_country_codes, which provides the actual code/name mappings.
gem install iso_country_codes
Then register the gem in your config/environment.rb and vendor if desired.
class Company < ActiveRecord::Base iso_country :country end c = Company.new :country => "es" c.country # => "es" c.country_name # => "Spain" c.country_name = "France" c.country # => "fr" - form_for @company do |f| = f.country_select :country
