Table of Contents

Install

npm install countrystatesjs

Using with browserify

To run in-browser, you'll need the bulkify transform for browserify, as it pairs with bulk-require, to staticly resolve each country JSON.

npm install bulkify
var bulkify = require('bulkify')
var bundle = browserify({
  entries: [...],
})
.transform(bulkify, {
  global: true
})

Usage

To access one of the country properties available, you'll need to use one of the API methods listed below and pass a country in either way:

  • Using the ISO-alpha2 code: country.name('US', 'ISO2')
  • Using the ISO-alpha3 code: country.name('GBR', 'ISO3)
  • Getting a State/Province name: country.name('US','IN')
  • Getting a State/Province Object: country.state('US','IN')

API

.name()

Returns name for a specified country

var country = require('countrystatesjs');
country.name('USA','ISO3'); // 'ISO2', 'ISO3', 'name'
country.name('US') // Defaults to 'ISO2'
// returns string
// "United States"
 
country.name('US','IN') // Looks up country and state/province by ISO, Name, and Alternative Spellings
// returns string
// "Indiana"

.states()

Returns all states/provinces for a specified country.

var country = require('countrystatesjs');
country.states('USA', 'ISO3'); // 'ISO2', 'ISO3', 'name'
country.states('US'); // Defaults to ISO2
// returns array of states / provinces,
// [
//  {"abbreviation":"AL","name":"Alabama","country":"US"}
//  ...
// ]

.provinces()

Alias of .states()

.state()

Returns name for a specified country

var country = require('countrystatesjs');
country.state('USA','Indiana'); // State Name, State Abbreviation
// returns object
// { abbreviation: 'IN', name: 'Indiana', country: 'US' }
 

.province()

Alias of .state()

.altSpellings()

Returns alternate spellings for the name of a specified country

var country = require('countrystatesjs');
country.altSpellings('USA','ISO3'); // 'ISO2', 'ISO3', 'name'
country.altSpellings('US') // Defaults to 'ISO2'
// returns array of strings, alternate names
// ["US", "USA", "United States of America"]

.all()

Return all country data. This will be super big. Not recommended.

var country = require('countrystatesjs');
country.all();
// returns array of objects,
// [{
//     "name": "United States",
//     "altSpellings": ["US", "USA", "United States of America"],
//     "ISO": {
//         "alpha2": "US",
//         "alpha3": "USA"

// }...]
