This package lets you use the pycountry database within Zope 3.

In practice, this means e.g., that you can easily get a zope.schema.Choice field to provide a full list of iso 3166 country codes.

For more information about the database please refer to the pycountry product.

gocept.country

gocept.country provides Zope 3 sources for the pycountry databases. You can use it e.g. to get a zope.schema.Choice field with all ISO 3166 countries.

>>> import gocept.country
>>> import gocept.country.db
>>> import zope.schema

ISO 3166 Countries

To get a list of ISO 3166 countries in a web form, you can use the zope.schema.Choice field and provide the gocept.country.countries as source:

>>> countries_field = zope.schema.Choice(title=u'Country',
...                            source=gocept.country.countries)
>>> countries_field
<zope.schema._field.Choice object at 0x...>
>>> countries = iter(countries_field.source)

The gocept.country.countries source factory returns Country objects as values, which use the values from pycountry:

>>> aruba = countries.next()
>>> afghanistan = countries.next()
>>> afghanistan
<gocept.country.db.Country object at 0x...>
>>> afghanistan.name
u'Afghanistan'

Calling next() again returns the next country from the source:

>>> angola = countries.next()
>>> angola.name
u'Angola'

There are all information available, which you can get from pycountry:

>>> afghanistan.alpha_2
u'AF'
>>> afghanistan.alpha_3
u'AFG'
>>> afghanistan.numeric
u'004'
>>> afghanistan.official_name
u'Islamic Republic of Afghanistan'

To reduce the amount of results you can provide a list or tuple of countries you like to have in your source:

>>> countries = gocept.country.CountrySource(alpha_2=['DE', 'US'])
>>> [countries.factory.getTitle(x) for x in countries]
[u'Germany', u'United States']
>>> [countries.factory.getToken(x) for x in countries]
[u'DE', u'US']

Please note, that the result items are sorted by alpha_2 code. Please also note, that you can provide alpha_3 and numeric codes and names resp. official_names to reduce the amount of result items, too:

>>> len(list(gocept.country.CountrySource())) > 200
True
>>> len(list(gocept.country.CountrySource(alpha_2=['DE', 'US', 'GB'])))
3
>>> len(list(gocept.country.CountrySource(alpha_3=['DEU', 'USA'])))
2
>>> len(list(gocept.country.CountrySource(numeric=['276', ])))
1
>>> countries_list = ['Germany', 'Italy', 'Poland', 'France']
>>> len(list(gocept.country.CountrySource(name=countries_list)))
4

Providing codes, which are not present, does not result in an exception but in an empty list:

>>> len(list(gocept.country.CountrySource(capital=['Berlin', 'Paris'])))
0

ISO 3166-2 Country subdivisions

Context free source

Country subdivisions are similar to countries:

>>> subdivisions_field = zope.schema.Choice(
...     title=u'Country subdivisions', source=gocept.country.subdivisions)
>>> subdivisions = iter(subdivisions_field.source)
>>> canillo = subdivisions.next()
>>> canillo.name
u'Canillo'
>>> canillo.code
u'AD-02'
>>> encamp = subdivisions.next()
>>> encamp.name
u'Encamp'
>>> encamp.code
u'AD-03'
>>> gocept.country.subdivisions.factory.getToken(encamp)
u'AD-03'

Please note, that the result items are sorted by their code. Please also note, that you can provide names and numeric codes to reduce the amount of result items, too.

>>> len(list(gocept.country.SubdivisionSource())) > 4000
True
>>> len(list(gocept.country.SubdivisionSource(code=['DE-ST', 'US-WA'])))
2
>>> len(list(gocept.country.SubdivisionSource(country_code=['DE'])))
16
>>> [x.name
...  for x in gocept.country.SubdivisionSource(country_code=['DE'])][1:3]
[u'Berlin', u'Baden-W\xfcrttemberg']
>>> len(list(gocept.country.SubdivisionSource(name=[u'Bayern', u'Bremen'])))
2

Contextual source

There is also a contextual source for country subdivisions which depends on a country. Let’s set up a context object first:

>>> import zope.interface
>>> class IAddress(zope.interface.Interface):
...     country = zope.interface.Attribute("The country of the address.")
...     subdivision = zope.schema.Choice(
...         title=u'Country subdivisions',
...         source=gocept.country.contextual_subdivisions)
>>> class Address(object):
...     zope.interface.implements(IAddress)
>>> address = Address()
>>> address.country = gocept.country.db.Country('DE')

The contextual source expects an adapter between the context and gocept.country.interfaces.ICountry:

>>> import zope.component
>>> import gocept.country.interfaces
>>> def get_country(context):
...     return context.country
>>> zope.component.provideAdapter(
...    get_country, (IAddress, ), gocept.country.interfaces.ICountry)
>>> gocept.country.interfaces.ICountry(address).name
u'Germany'

So the source contains only the country subdivisions belonging to the country:

>>> len(list(iter(gocept.country.contextual_subdivisions(address))))
16
>>> [x.name
...  for x in iter(gocept.country.contextual_subdivisions(address))][1:3]
[u'Berlin', u'Baden-W\xfcrttemberg']

Changing the country changes also the subdivisions:

>>> address.country = gocept.country.db.Country('CH')
>>> len(list(iter(gocept.country.contextual_subdivisions(address))))
26
>>> [x.name
...  for x in iter(gocept.country.contextual_subdivisions(address))]
[u'Aargau', u'Appenzell Innerrhoden', ...]
>>> [x.code
...  for x in iter(gocept.country.contextual_subdivisions(address))]
[u'CH-AG', u'CH-AI', ...]
>>> [gocept.country.contextual_subdivisions.factory.getToken(address, x)
...  for x in iter(gocept.country.contextual_subdivisions(address))]
[u'CH-AG', u'CH-AI', ...]
>>> gocept.country.contextual_subdivisions.factory.getTitle(
...     address, gocept.country.db.Subdivision('CH-AG'))
u'Aargau'

If the country is not set there are no subdivisions:

>>> address.country = None
>>> len(list(iter(gocept.country.contextual_subdivisions(address))))
0
>>> list(iter(gocept.country.contextual_subdivisions(address)))
[]

ISO 15924 Scripts

Scripts are similar to countries:

>>> scripts_field = zope.schema.Choice(title=u'Script',
...                            source=gocept.country.scripts)
>>> scripts = iter(scripts_field.source)
>>> adlam = scripts.next()
>>> adlam.name
u'Adlam'
>>> afaka = scripts.next()
>>> afaka.name
u'Afaka'
>>> gocept.country.scripts.factory.getToken(afaka)
u'Afak'

Please note, that the result items are sorted by alpha_4 code. Please also note, that you can provide names and numeric codes to smaller the amount of result items, too.

>>> len(list(gocept.country.ScriptSource())) > 130
True
>>> len(list(gocept.country.ScriptSource(alpha_4=['Arab', 'Latn'])))
2
>>> len(list(gocept.country.ScriptSource(numeric=['215', ])))
1
>>> len(list(gocept.country.ScriptSource(name=['Arabic', 'Latin'])))
2

ISO 4217 Currencies

Currencies are similar to the ones before:

>>> currencies_field = zope.schema.Choice(title=u'Currency',
...                            source=gocept.country.currencies)
>>> currencies = iter(currencies_field.source)
>>> dirham = currencies.next()
>>> dirham.name
u'UAE Dirham'
>>> afghani = currencies.next()
>>> afghani.name
u'Afghani'
>>> gocept.country.currencies.factory.getToken(afghani)
u'AFN'

Please note, that the result items are sorted by alpha_3 code. Please also note, that you can provide names and numeric codes to reduce the amount of result items, too.

>>> len(list(gocept.country.CurrencySource())) >= 170
True
>>> len(list(gocept.country.CurrencySource(alpha_3=['ARS', 'AED', 'AFN'])))
3
>>> len(list(gocept.country.CurrencySource(numeric=['032', '784'])))
2
>>> len(list(gocept.country.CurrencySource(name=['Afghani', ])))
1

ISO 639 Languages

Languages are similar, too:

>>> languages_field = zope.schema.Choice(title=u'Language',
...                            source=gocept.country.languages)
>>> languages = iter(languages_field.source)
>>> ghotuo = languages.next()
>>> ghotuo.name
u'Ghotuo'
>>> alumu_tesu = languages.next()
>>> alumu_tesu.name
u'Alumu-Tesu'
>>> gocept.country.languages.factory.getToken(alumu_tesu)
u'aab'

Please note, that the result items are sorted by alpha_3. Please also note, that you can provide names to reduce the amount of result items, too.

>>> len(list(gocept.country.LanguageSource())) > 480
True
>>> len(list(gocept.country.LanguageSource(alpha_3=['eng', 'deu'])))
2
>>> len(list(gocept.country.LanguageSource(name=['English', 'German'])))
2

Translations

First we fetch a specific country:

>>> countries = list(iter(countries_field.source))
>>> germany = [x for x in countries if x.name == u'Germany'][0]

The i18n translate method translates ‘Germany’ into German:

>>> zope.i18n.translate(germany.name, target_language='de')
u'Deutschland'

There are also translations for scripts, currencies and languages.

Comparison

Countries, scripts, currencies and languages can be compared to equality. To test this, we will need another country object afghanistan, which is not the same object as retrieved before:

>>> afghanistan = iter(gocept.country.CountrySource(alpha_2=['AF'])).next()
>>> afghanistan2 = iter(gocept.country.CountrySource(alpha_2=['AF'])).next()
>>> str(afghanistan) == str(afghanistan2)
False

Comparing them will get the token for each and compare it:

>>> afghanistan == afghanistan2
True
>>> afghanistan != afghanistan2
False
>>> afghanistan != germany
True
>>> afghanistan == germany
False

Comparing with an instance of another class always returns False:

>>> afghanistan == None
False
>>> afghanistan != None
True
>>> afghanistan == object()
False
>>> afghanistan != object()
True

Pickling and unpickling

It should be possible to store “proxy objects” in a database (like the ZODB). Therefore, they have to be pickleable:

>>> import StringIO
>>> import cPickle
>>> f = StringIO.StringIO('')
>>> f.read()
''

Pickling a country should never raise an error…

>>> cPickle.dump(afghanistan, f)

… and results in storing the token in the pickle:

>>> f.seek(0)
>>> 'AF' in f.read()
True

Reading the pickle again will return the same country which was pickled before:

>>> f.seek(0)
>>> afghanistan2 = cPickle.load(f)
>>> afghanistan2 == afghanistan
True
>>> afghanistan2.name
u'Afghanistan'
