How to get country list in laravel ?

Hi Guys,

In this example,I will learn you how to get country list in laravel.you can easy and simply get get country list in laravel.

I am going to show you how to get the list of all the countries in your laravel 8 app, it is also applicable to laravel 7 downwards.

Step 1: Install Laravel Project


First, you need to download the laravel fresh setup. Use this command then download laravel project setup :

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

Step 2: Setup Database

After successfully install laravel 8 Application, Go to your project .env file and set up database credential and move next step :

DB_CONNECTION=mysql

DB_HOST=127.0.0.1

DB_PORT=3306

DB_DATABASE=here your database name

DB_USERNAME=here database username

DB_PASSWORD=here database password

Step 3: Create Migration

we are going to create file upload application for coutries. so we have to create migration for "countries" table and create model using Laravel 8 php artisan command, so first fire bellow command:

php artisan make:migration countries

After this command you will find one file in following path "database/migrations" and you have to put bellow code in your migration file for create countries table

<?php

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

class CreateCountriesTable extends Migration

{

/**

* Run the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function up()

{

Schema::create('countries', function (Blueprint $table) {

$table->bigIncrements('id');

$table->string('name');

$table->string('code');

$table->timestamps();

});

}

/**

* Reverse the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function down()

{

Schema::dropIfExists('countries');

}

}

Now you have to run this migration by following command:

php artisan migrate

Step 4 : Make Seeder

In this step, we will create a seeder file for storing all countries data in countries table

php artisan make:seeder CountrySeeder

database/seeders/CountrySeeder.php

<?php

namespace Database\Seeders;

use Illuminate\Database\Seeder;

use DB;

class CountrySeeder extends Seeder

{

/**

* Run the database seeds.

*

* @return void

*/

public function run()

{

DB::table('countries')->truncate();

];

DB::table('countries')->insert($countries);

}

}

Step 5: Add Route

Here, we need to add route for ajax form submit. so open your "routes/web.php" file and add following route.

routes/web.php

use App\Http\Controllers\ContactController;

Route::get('/country-list', [CountryController::class, 'index']);

Step 6: Add Controller

In this step, now we should create new controller as CountryController. So run bellow command and create new controller. bellow controller for create CountryController.

php artisan make:controller CountryController

app/Http/Controllers/CountryController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use App\Models\Country;

class CountryController extends Controller

{

public function index()

{

$Getcountrylist = Country::pluck('name','code')->all();

return view('country',compact('Getcountrylist'));

}

}

Step 7: Add Blade

resources/views/country.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html lang="en">

<head>

<title>get all country list</title>

<meta charset="utf-8">

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.4.1/css/bootstrap.min.css">

<select class="form-control">

@foreach ($Getcountrylist as $key => $Country)

<option value="">{{ $Country }} - {{ $key }}</option>

@endforeach

</select>

</div>

</div>

</div>

<div class="row text-center">

<button type="submit" class="btn btn-suucess">Submit</button>

<button class="btn btn-warning">Cancle</button>

</div>

</div>

</div>

</div>

</div>

</div>
