Like the website title implies this site is dedicated to lists with countries.
Download Countries List
The Download List link has a little form that allows you to select certain options to create a countries list. The list with countries of this world can be grouped in continents, regions and is available in multiple languages.
Purpose and audience
The main purpose and audience is probably programmers, hackers, coders, nerds or whatever you want to call them. I am a coder and was more or less forced into finding a way and get a list with all the countries in the world. I was working on a project and searched for a solution. On one page I found a clue and suddenly realized that the solution was right in front of me. Apparently the Zend Framework is able to create country lists because I am working with the Zend Framework I had everything I needed.
Now, you might not be so lucky and for your project integrating or just get the grips on the Zend Framework and Zend_Locale takes too much time. At first, I thought I write a little tutorial Array Lists with Countries about how to get the data. When I wrote this I realized it will be still way too much for some people. Especially web designers who don't write their own code and are not a developer like me. They probably don't even know enough about PHP and how to load an array into a form. I don't blame you.
The tutorial almost instantly showed up on top in Google's search for many different key words. I wondered if people like it and use it or just click away because they cannot find a ready to go list. If only 1 out of 10 clicks away it would be certainly appreciated by them if there was a web site that offers just that, a variety of lists with all countries and in many languages because that's what Zend_Locale can do for you. Maybe 8 out of the remaining 9 may appreciate it, too.
So, here we are! A website dedicated to only countries and lists in various formats and languages. If you like this website please spread the word and help funding by visiting some of the sponsors in the Download page.
