A helper to list countries & states in English in Laravel 6.0+.
Require this package with composer:
composer require dougsisk/laravel-country-state
This package will automatically be discovered by Laravel, if enabled. If you don't have auto package discovery on, you'll need to add the following service provider to your config/app.php:
Copy the package config to your local config with the publish command:
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="DougSisk\CountryState\CountryStateServiceProvider" --tag="config"
By default, the helper will preload states for the US. You can change this via the
preloadCountryStates config option:
'preloadCountryStates' => ['CA', 'MX', 'US']
If you don't want every country to be returned, you can define countries using the
limitCountries config option:
'limitCountries' => ['CA', 'MX', 'US']
You may now use the
CountryState facade to access countries and states.
Remember to import the namespace to access the facade in your files:
To get an array of countries:
$countries = CountryState::getCountries();
The array keys will be the countries' 2 letter ISO code and the values will be the countries' English name. You may also set the 3 letter ISO key as the argument to receive translations of the countries' names (limited support).
To get an array of a country's states, simply pass the country's 2 letter ISO code:
$states = CountryState::getStates('US');
The array keys will be the states' 2 letter ISO code and the values will be the states' English name.
