Data was gathered from


npm install country-code-info --save


const CountryCodes = require('country-code-info');

// you can search countries by any data field
// by passing in a key value pair
// key: data field
// value: value to search for

let uk = CountryCodes.findCountry({'name': 'United Kingdom'});
/* returns:
    'name': 'United Kingdom',
    'a2': 'GB',
    'a3': 'GBR',
    'num': '826',
    'itu': 'G',
    'gec': 'UK',
    'ioc': 'GBR',
    'fifa': 'ENG, NIR, SCO, WAL',
    'ds': 'GB',
    'wmo': 'UK',
    'gaul': '256',
    'marc': 'xxk',
    'dial': '44',
    'independent': 'Yes'

// examples showing searching by various data fields
let uk = CountryCodes.findCountry({'fifa': 'eng'});
let uk = CountryCodes.findCountry({'dial': '44'});

// if you need to match exactly the string you pass in
// as the search term, you can pass in a second argument
// to findCountry function which will enable exact match.
let uk = CountryCodes.findCountry({'ds': 'gb'}, true); // exact match


If a country is not found, a null object is returned.

Key and Value pairs are not case-sensitive so {'name':'united kingdom'} and {'NAME': 'united kingdom'} are treated in the same way.

If an invalid data field key is used or a search object is not provided, errors are thrown.
