How to Add Country List in Laravel App?

Hello,

This article will give an example about how to add country list in your laravel application. You will easily make country migration and seeder. I explained step by step laravel get country list. You can easily use any laravel application like laravel 5, laravel 6, laravel 7, laravel 8 and laravel 9 application. Let's start:

Step 1: Install Laravel

First of all we need to get fresh Laravel 8 version application using bellow command, So open your terminal OR command prompt and run bellow command:

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

Step 2: Create Seeder and Country Model

here, we will create migration and model for country table,

php artisan make:migration model Country -m

database/migrations/2022_12_09_2342_countries_table.php

<?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->id();
            $table->string('name');
            $table->string('code');
            $table->timestamps();
        });
    }
  
    /**
     * Reverse the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function down()
    {
        Schema::dropIfExists('countries');
    }
}

now, run command using terminal

php artisan migrate

now, we need to add fillable into our model

app/Models/County.php

<?php
  
namespace App\Models;
  
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
  
class Country extends Model
{
    use HasFactory;
  
    protected $fillable = [
        'name', 'code'
    ];
}

Step 3: Create Seeder

after creating model and migration, we need to create seeder for country table

php artisan make:seeder CountryTableSeeder

database/seeders/CountrySeeder.php

<?php
  
namespace Database\Seeders;
  
use Illuminate\Database\Seeder;
use App\Models\Country;
  
class CountrySeeder extends Seeder
{
    /**
     * Run the database seeds.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function run()
    {
        Country::truncate();
  
        $countries = [
            ['name' => 'Afghanistan', 'code' => 'AF'],
