[![wercker status](https://app.wercker.com/status/909d6a059d7d0b49b74ec8b658f97df4/s/master "wercker status")](https://app.wercker.com/project/bykey/909d6a059d7d0b49b74ec8b658f97df4) [![codecov.io](https://codecov.io/github/pariz/gountries/coverage.svg?branch=master)](https://codecov.io/github/pariz/gountries?branch=master) [![Go Report Card](https://goreportcard.com/badge/pariz/gountries)](https://goreportcard.com/report/pariz/gountries)

Inspired by the [countries](https://github.com/hexorx/countries) gem for ruby.

Countries (ISO-3166-1), Country Subdivisions(ISO-3166-2), Currencies (ISO 4217), Geo Coordinates(ISO-6709) as well as translations, country borders and other stuff exposed as struct data.

All data is derived from the [pariz/countries](https://github.com/pariz/countries) repo.

*This is currently a work in progress, so things may change. More stuff will be added*

# Installation

```
go get github.com/pariz/gountries
```

# Examples


## Basic
```go

import (
  "github.com/pariz/gountries"
  "fmt"
)


query := gountries.New()

/////////////////
// Find sweden //
/////////////////

sweden, _ := query.FindCountryByName("sweden")
// sweden, _ := query.FindCountryByAlpha("SE")
// sweden, _ := query.FindCountryByAlpha("SWE")

fmt.Println(sweden.Name.Common) // Output: Sweden
fmt.Println(sweden.Name.Official) // Output: Konungariket Sverige

fmt.Println(sweden.Translations["DEU"].Common) // Output: Schweden
fmt.Println(sweden.Translations["DEU"].Official) // Output: Königreich Schweden


```
## A bit more advanced
```go

import (
  "github.com/pariz/gountries"
  "fmt"
)

query := gountries.New()

////////////////////////////////////////////
// Find the bordering countries of Sweden //
////////////////////////////////////////////

sweden, _ := query.FindCountryByAlpha("SWE") // "SE" also works..

// Get the bordering countries of sweden
for _, country := range sweden.BorderingCountries() {
	fmt.Println(country.Name.Common)
}

// Output:
// Finland
// Norway

////////////////////////////////////
// Find all subdivisons for Sweden //
////////////////////////////////////

subdivisions := sweden.SubDivisions()

for _, subdivision := range subdivisions {
	fmt.Println(subdivision.Name)
}

// Output:
// Västerbottens län
// Uppsala län
// Södermanlands län
// Gotlands län
// Dalarnas län
// ...

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// Find all countries bordering Germany and Switzerland //
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

countryQuery := Country{
	Borders: []string{
		"DEU",
		"CHE",
	},
}

countries := query.FindCountries(countryQuery)

for _, c := range countries {
	fmt.Println(c.Name.Common)
}

// Output:
// Austria
// France

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// Calculate distance between Sweden and Germany (in Kilometers) //
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

se, _ := query.FindCountryByAlpha("SWE")
de, _ := query.FindCountryByAlpha("DEU")

distance := gountries.MeasureDistanceHaversine(se, de)
//distance := MeasureDistancePythagoras(se, de)

fmt.Println(distance)

// Output:
// 1430.1937864547901

distance = gountries.CalculateHaversine(
	se.Coordinates.MaxLatitude, se.Coordinates.MaxLongitude,
	de.Coordinates.MinLatitude, de.Coordinates.MinLongitude)

fmt.Println(distance)

// Output:
// 2641.26145088825


```

# Testing

Has a pretty solid test coverage but is constantly improving.

# Todo
- [ ] Province/County querying (partially complete)
- [x] Measurement between coordinates
- [ ] GeoJSON information
- [ ] Suggestions?
