Installation

Install via NPM:

npm install use-postal-ph

Or via Yarn:

yarn add use-postal-ph

Usage

To start using the use-postal-ph library, follow these steps:

import usePostalPH from 'use-postal-ph';

You can now utilize the library's methods to retrieve postal code, municipality, location, and region information.

const postalPH = usePostalPH();

// Fetch a list of municipalities
const municipalities = postalPH.fetchMunicipalities();
console.log(municipalities);

// Fetch postal codes
const postalCodes = postalPH.fetchPostCodes();
console.log(postalCodes);

// Fetch locations
const locations = postalPH.fetchLocations();
console.log(locations);

// Fetch regions
const regions = postalPH.fetchRegions();
console.log(regions);

// Fetch all data lists
const dataLimit = postalPH.fetchDataLists();
console.log(dataLimit);

You can also specify search criteria and limit the number of results returned:

// Fetch a list of municipalities starting with 'Manila' and limit the result to 10
const municipalities = postalPH.fetchMunicipalities({search: 'Manila', limit: 10});
console.log(municipalities);

// Fetch postal code for 6045
const postalCodes = postalPH.fetchPostCodes({search: 6045});
console.log(postalCodes);

// Fetch postal codes with a limit of 5
const postalCodesLimit = postalPH.fetchPostCodes({limit: 5});
console.log(postalCodesLimit);

// Fetch locations containing 'Cebu' and limit the result to 3
const locations = postalPH.fetchLocations({search: 'Cebu', limit: 3});
console.log(locations);

// Fetch regions starting with 'NCR' and limit the result to 8
const regions = postalPH.fetchRegions({search: 'NCR', limit: 8});
console.log(regions);

// Fetch all data lists with a limit of 15
const dataLimit = postalPH.fetchDataLists({limit: 15});
console.log(dataLimit);

// Fetch data based on the search criteria
const dataList = postalPH.fetchDataLists({
    post_code: 6045,
    location: "Talisay",
    region: "VII",
    municipality: "Cebu"
});
console.log(dataList);

Importing Types

You can also import specific types provided by use-postal-ph:

import type {PlaceProps, SearchCriteriaProps, PlaceListCriteriaProps} from "use-postal-ph";

Type Definitions

Here are the type definitions provided by use-postal-ph:

export type PlaceDataProps = {
    data: PlaceProps[];
};

export type PlaceProps = {
    municipality?: string;
    location?: string;
    post_code?: number | string;
    region?: string;
};

export type SearchCriteriaProps = {
    search?: number | string;
    limit?: number;
};

export type PlaceListCriteriaProps = PlaceProps & {
    limit?: number;
};

Query Options

When using the library's methods, you have the option to include an object containing parameters for more specific queries:

  • search: This parameter is used to find specific information. For postal codes, search directly for the code itself. You can also search for municipalities, locations, and regions based on your query.
  • limit: This parameter restricts the number of results returned for municipalities, locations, and regions. However, it does not affect the results when searching for postal codes.
  • municipality: Search by the name of the municipality.
  • post_code: Search by the postal code.
  • location: Search by the specific district or neighborhood.
  • region: Search by the region where the place is located.

ECMAScript Module (ESM) Entry Point

If you prefer not to install the package and want to include the ECMAScript module (ESM) entry point directly in your project, you can use the following script tag:

Import Statement:

<script type="module">
    import usePostalPH from 'https://unpkg.com/use-postal-ph@1.1.7/dist/index.mjs';

    const {
        fetchDataLists,
        fetchLocations,
        fetchMunicipalities,
        fetchPostCodes,
        fetchRegions
    } = usePostalPH();

    console.log(fetchPostCodes({search: "6045"}))
</script>

This script imports the fetchPostCodes function from the use-postal-ph package and retrieves information for the postal code '6045'. It then logs the result to the console.

{
  "location": "Cebu",
  "region": "VII",
  "municipality": "Talisay",
  "post_code": 6045
}
