1.0.2 • Public • Published

ISO Flags

The Unicode Consortium has made it possible to convert the two letter region codes (defined in ISO-3166, alpha2) into their flag representation, this library does this for you in JavaScript.

Installation

$ npm install @konfirm/isoflag

Usage

const Flag = require('@konfirm/isoflag');

const flagNL = Flag.factory('NL');
const flagBE = new Flag('BE');

Creating an instance

The ISOFlag class provides two means to obtain an instance, the most obvious one being using the new syntax.

const Flag = require('@konfim/isoflag');
const flagDE = new Flag('DE');

If you have a need for a lot of flag instances and/or want to be able to compare instances, you can use the ISOFlag.factory method, which caches instances.

const Flag = require('@konfirm/isoflag');
const flagPO = Flag.factory('PO');

API

ISOFlag.factory(string iso)

The static factory method is used to create and cache instances for re-use. Use the factory method if you need/want to compare instances directly.

const Flag = require('@konfirm/isoflag');
const flagES = Flag.factory('ES');
 
if (flagES === Flag.factory('es')) {
    //  both are the exact same instance
}

ISOFlag.hasFlag(string iso)

The static hasFlag quickly determines whether or not an ISOFlag instance can be created for the specified ISO-3166 alpha2 code.

const Flag = require('@konfirm/isoflag');
 
if (Flag.hasFlag('US')) {
    //  the 'US' region has a flag
}
 
if (Flag.hasFlag('QQ')) {
    //  this is never reached
} else {
    //  'QQ' is not a valid region :()
}

flag.getUnicode()

Obtain the unicode character index representing the flag. These codepoints represent characters like 🇷 and 🇷, which - when used combined - is turned into 🇷🇸 (dependending on your font-set, you may not see a flag);

const Flag = require('@konfirm/isoflag');
const flagRS = new Flag('RS');
 
const indices = flagRS.getUnicode();
 
// [127479, 127480]

flag.toHTMLEntities()

Characters in HTML can be represented by their character index within the unicde standard, ISOFlag provides the hexadecimal notation of these entities.

const Flag = require('@konfirm/isoflag');
const flagCH = new Flag('CH');
 
const entities = flagCH.toHTMLEntities();
 
// 🇨🇭

flag.toUnicodeSymbol()

Represent the flag as its unicode emoji

const Flag = require('@konfirm/isoflag');
const flagDK = new Flag('DK');
 
const symbol = flagDK.toUnicodeSymbol();
 
// 🇩🇰

String(flag)

Flag instances can be turned into string, it is the same as using toUnicodeSymbol() on the instance

const Flag = require('@konfirm/isoflag');
const flagSE = new Flag('SE');
 
const symbol = String(flagSE);
 
// 🇸🇪
