Installing / Getting started

npm install @localization/l10n

Use the following snippet inside your app module:

import { L10nModule, L10nService, LanguageCodes } from '@localization/l10n';
...
...

@Injectable()
export class LocalizationResolve implements Resolve {

constructor(private localization: L10nService){
this.localization.languageChanges.subscribe(({ code }) => {
this.localization.setFromFile(`${code}.locales.properties`);
})
}

public resolve(): Observable|Promise {
return this.localization.setFromFile(`${this.localization.languageCode}.locales.properties`);
}
}

@NgModule({
imports: [
BrowserModule,
L10nModule.forRoot({ config: { defaultLanguage: LanguageCodes.EnglishUnitedStates } }),
RouterModule.forRoot([
{ path: '', component: AppComponent, resolve: { localization: LocalizationResolve }}
])
],
providers: [LocalizationResolve],
bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule {}

Use the following snippet inside your component:

import { L10nService } from '@localization/l10n';


@Component({
...
})
export class AppComponent {

constructor(private localization: L10nService) {
}
}

Use the following snippet inside your template:

<div l10n="app.hello.key" [l10n-args]="params"></div>
<div l10n="app.hello.key" [l10n-args]="{value: 'world'}"></div>
<div l10n="app.hello.key" l10n-args="{value: 'world'}"></div>

<div [l10n]="'app.hello.key'" [l10n-args]="params"></div>
<div [l10n]="'app.hello.key'" l10n-args="{value: 'world'}"></div>

<div>{{'app.hello.key' | l10n:param }}</div>
<div [innerHTML]="'app.hello.key' | l10n"></div>
<div>{{'app.hello.key' | l10n: {'key': 'value'} }}</div>

NativeScript

tns plugin add @localization/l10n

Use the following snippet inside your app module:

import { L10nModule, L10nService, L10nBaseLoader } from '@localization/l10n';
import { knownFolders } from "file-system";
import { Subject, Observable, from } from 'rxjs';
import { map } from 'rxjs/operators';
import { Resolve } from "@angular/router";
...
import { NativeScriptModule } from "nativescript-angular/nativescript.module";
import { NativeScriptRouterModule } from "nativescript-angular/router";
...
...

@Injectable()
export class CustomLoader extends L10nBaseLoader {

private readonly folderName = 'locales'; // folder where you place your locale files,
// in our case that is locales/en.locales.properties
private readonly documents = knownFolders.currentApp();
private readonly folder = this.documents.getFolder(this.folderName);

public getFile({ url, code }: IL10nFileRequest ): Observable<IL10nLoaderResponse> {
let fileType = this.getFileExtension( url );
let file = this.folder.getFile(url);

return from(file.readText())
.pipe(map((response) => {
return { response, fileType }
}))
;
}
}

@Injectable()
export class LocalizationResolve implements Resolve {

constructor(private localization: L10nService){
this.localization.languageChanges.subscribe(({ code }) => {
this.localization.setFromFile(`${code}.locales.properties`);
})
}

public resolve(): Observable|Promise {
return this.localization.setFromFile(`${this.localization.languageCode}.locales.properties`);
}
}

@NgModule({
imports: [
NativeScriptModule,
L10nModule.forRoot({
config: {defaultLanguage: LanguageCodes.EnglishUnitedStates, bindingProperty: 'text' },
loader: CustomLoader
}),
NativeScriptRouterModule.forRoot([
{ path: '', component: AppComponent, resolve: { localization: LocalizationResolve }}
])
],
providers: [
LocalizationResolve,
L10nService, // because currently NativeScript doesn\'t work with @Injectable({ providedIn: \'root\' })
CustomLoader
],
bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule {}

Use the following snippet inside your template:

<ActionBar title="{{ 'app.header.title' | l10n }}" class="action-bar"></ActionBar>
<ActionBar [title]="'app.hello.key' | l10n"></ActionBar>
<Label text="{{'app.hello.key' | l10n }}"></Label>
<Button text="{{'app.hello.key' | l10n }}" (tap)="onTap($event)"></Button>

If bindingProperty in configuration is set to text l10 directive will use it as default element property

<Label l10n="app.hello.key" [l10n-args]="params"></Label>
<Label l10n="app.hello.key" [l10n-args]="{value: 'world'}"></Label>
<Label l10n="app.hello.key" l10n-args="{value: 'world'}"></Label>

<Label [l10n]="'app.hello.key'" [l10n-args]="params"></Label>
<Label [l10n]="'app.hello.key'" l10n-args="{value: 'world'}"></Label>
