Golang : Display list of countries and ISO codes



Tags : golang json-unmarshal-to-map countries-name iso

The code example below will download the JSON formatted data from http://country.io/names.json and unmarshal the data to display a list of all countries in the world.

 package main

 import (
  "encoding/json"
  "fmt"
  "io/ioutil"
  "net/http"
  "os"
 )

 // NOTE : struct doesn't work here due to the nature
 // of the JSON data from country.io
 // it has no field identifiers

 //type Country struct {
 // ISO string
 //}

 func main() {

  resp, err := http.Get("http://country.io/names.json")

  if err != nil {
 fmt.Println(err)
 os.Exit(1)
  }

  defer resp.Body.Close()

  jsonCountriesData, err := ioutil.ReadAll(resp.Body)

  if err != nil {
 fmt.Println(err)
 os.Exit(1)
  }

  //fmt.Println(string(jsonData))

  countriesMap := make(map[string]interface{})

 //NOTE : unmarshal to struct will throw this error message
 // json: cannot unmarshal object into Go value of type


  // Decode JSON into our map
  err = json.Unmarshal([]byte(jsonCountriesData), &countriesMap)

  if err != nil {
 println(err)
 return
  }

  for iso2, name := range countriesMap {
 fmt.Println("ISO2 code:", iso2, "Country name :", name)
  }

 }

and the output :
