Phone number parser for telephone numbers in international standard or missing international country code, for Elixir.

Note on version 0.4.0 onward: Phone was rebuild to increase performance, that may increase compilation time but made Phone 100 times faster.


What is, what isnt and what will be about Phone:

  1. It isnt:
    • Intended to work as libphonenumber.
    • Prepared to format numbers.
    • Necessary any information about the number if in international standard.
  2. It is:
    • A real parser, created to extract information based only in the number.
    • Prepared to work with numbers not only in the international standard.
  3. It will have:
    • Area code info for every country that numbering plan has area codes.
  • Patterns:

    • Countries without area code info: elixir %{ country: "Country Name", a2: "Alpha-2", a3: "Alpha-3", international_code: "1", area_code: "yyy", number: "xxxxxxx" }
    • Countries with area code info: elixir %{ country: "Country Name", a2: "Alpha-2 code", a3: "Alpha-3 code", international_code: "1", number: "xxxxxxx", area_code: "yyy", area_name: "Area Name", area_type: "state", area_abbreviation: "AN" }

Area Codes

Countries that already has area code info:

  • United States.
  • Canada.
  • Brazil.
  • Spain.


  • a2: Alpha-2, two letters code for country names.
  • a3: Alpha-3, three letters code for country names.
  • NANP: North American Numbering Plan, numbering plan for countries with international code number 1.
  • Numbering Plan: The rules and specifications of how telephone numbers works in a given country.
