Jumpstart your Angular applications with Indigo.Design, a unified platform for visual design, UX prototyping, code generation, and app development.

Have you ever created a sign-up form that required a dropdown for the user to select the country?

Normally you need to use an API to get a list of all the countries. But, this requires another HTTP request to get this information, below is a list of over 240 countries in JSON format which you can use to create a dropdown for all countries.

As this is in JSON format you can use both PHP or JavaScript to process the information and create the values in the dropdown.

Here is a link to the Gist that stores this content, or you can simply copy and paste the below JSON.
