Catalyst::Plugin::I18N - I18N for Catalyst

Catalyst::Plugin::I18N(3pm) User Contributed Perl Documentation Catalyst::Plugin::I18N(3pm)

NAME

Catalyst::Plugin::I18N - I18N for Catalyst

SYNOPSIS

    use Catalyst 'I18N';
    print join ' ', @{ $c->languages };
    $c->languages( ['de'] );
    print $c->localize('Hello Catalyst');
Use a macro if you're lazy:
   [% MACRO l(text, args) BLOCK;
       c.localize(text, args);
   END; %]
   [% l('Hello Catalyst') %]
   [% l('Hello [_1]', 'Catalyst') %]
   [% l('lalala[_1]lalala[_2]', ['test', 'foo']) %]
   [% l('messages.hello.catalyst') %]

DESCRIPTION

Supports mo/po files and Maketext classes under your application's I18N namespace.
   # MyApp/I18N/de.po
   msgid "Hello Catalyst"
   msgstr "Hallo Katalysator"
   # MyApp/I18N/i_default.po
   msgid "messages.hello.catalyst"
   msgstr "Hello Catalyst - fallback translation"
   # MyApp/I18N/de.pm
   package MyApp::I18N::de;
   use base 'MyApp::I18N';
   our %Lexicon = ( 'Hello Catalyst' => 'Hallo Katalysator' );
   1;

CONFIGURATION

You can override any parameter sent to Locale::Maketext::Simple by specifying a "maketext_options" hashref to the "Plugin::I18N" config section. For example, the following configuration will override the "Decode" parameter which normally defaults to 1:
    __PACKAGE__->config(
        'Plugin::I18N' =>
            maketext_options => {
                Decode => 0
            }
    );
All languages fallback to MyApp::I18N which is mapped onto the i-default language tag. If you use arbitrary message keys, use i_default.po to translate into English, otherwise the message key itself is returned.

EXTENDED METHODS

METHODS

languages
Contains languages.
   $c->languages(['de_DE']);
   print join '', @{ $c->languages };
language
return selected locale in your locales list.
language_tag
return language tag for current locale. The most notable difference from this method in comparison to "language()" is typically that languages and regions are joined with a dash and not an underscore.
    $c->language(); # en_us
    $c->language_tag(); # en-us
installed_languages
Returns a hash of { langtag => "descriptive name for language" } based on language files in your application's I18N directory. The descriptive name is based on I18N::LangTags::List information. If the descriptive name is not available, will be undef.
loc
localize
Localize text.
    print $c->localize( 'Welcome to Catalyst, [_1]', 'sri' );
