node-translate v0.0.4

A translation library for NodeJS that wraps node-polyglot

Node Translate Build Status

A translation library for NodeJS that wraps node-polyglot

Installation

To build a local version for use or development:

git clone git@github.com:thestonefox/node-translate.git
cd node-translate
npm install

Installing as a node module:

npm install node-translate --save

Example

Look at the example.js file to see a simple example of the library.

Run it with npm start

For more examples of the format of the locale files, look in ./locales/

module.exports = {
  "title": "Hello, World"
}

Usage

Create a new instance of the i18n library.

var i18n = require('node-translate');

Require the relevant locale files in a associative array with the key being the name of the locale and the value being the output of the respective locale file.

i18n.requireLocales({
  'en-gb': require('./locales/en-gb'),
  'fr': require('./locales/fr')
});

Set the initial locale to use by providing the locale name. The first specified required locale is used as the current locale by default.

i18n.setLocale('en-gb');

Now simply call the translation method with the key to translate.

i18n.t('title');

The t method is compatible with polyglot so takes an optional second parameter for parsing variables into the translation string.

i18n.t('title', {name: "string"})

Chaining setters is also permitted.

i18n.requireLocales({'de': require('./locales/de')}).setLocale('de');

Running Tests

To run the Jest tests just type:
