laravel 8 Get and Show Country List

Hello Dev.

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


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

.env

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();
 
        $countries = [
            ['name' => 'Afghanistan', 'code' => 'AF'],

            ['name' => 'Tonga', 'code' => 'TO'],
            ['name' => 'Trinidad and Tobago', 'code' => 'TT'],
            ['name' => 'Tunisia', 'code' => 'TN'],
            ['name' => 'Turkey', 'code' => 'TR'],
            ['name' => 'Turkmenistan', 'code' => 'TM'],
            ['name' => 'Turks and Caicos Islands', 'code' => 'TC'],

            ['name' => 'Zimbabwe', 'code' => 'ZW'],
        ];
 
        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">

                                    @endforeach
