e164

lookup country name given international phone number e164 format.

e164.js

e164.js is a browser friendly node module to lookup country name based on given international phone number complying to E.164 format.

e162.js doesn't check whether the phone number is a valid one or not. It simply returns the associated country based on prefix matching. The matcher starts from the last digit and revert lookup until a number matches from the lookup hash.

If a number can't be found from the lookup hash, number is assumed to be invalid and returns undefined.

If you're into formating, parsing or validation of any sort, checkout Google's own.

Directly from test/test.js

var e164 = require('../e164'), assert = require('assert');

assert.deepEqual({country: "Canada", code: "CA"}, e164.lookup('15141234567'));
assert.deepEqual({country: "Toll Free", code: "US"}, e164.lookup('18001231234'));
assert.deepEqual({country: "United States", code: "US"}, e164.lookup('18703434345'));
assert.deepEqual({country: "India", code: "IN"}, e164.lookup('9191'));
assert.deepEqual({country: "Norfolk Island", code: "NF"}, e164.lookup('672322424'));
assert.deepEqual({country: "ICO Global (Mobile Satellite Service)", code: "ZZ"}, e164.lookup('88112311'));
assert.deepEqual({country: "Canada", code: "CA"}, e164.lookup('1418'));
assert.deepEqual(undefined, e164.lookup('0'));
