PHP Countries is a library that provides an elegant syntax to country data.

Installation

You can install PHP Countries via Composer, as follows.

composer require rapidwebltd/php-countries

foreach($countries->all() as $country) {
    var_dump($country->name.' - '.$country->officialName);
}

Retrieving country by name

Country details can be retrieved from the country's official or common name.

var_dump($countries->getByName('United Kingdom'));

/*
