This package provides a collection of locale configs, used in BBC World Service sites.
The following Moment.js locales have been added as they do not exist upstream:
/moment/am- locale override for Amharic
/moment/ha- locale for Hausa

/moment/om- locale override for Afaan Oromoo
/moment/pcm- locale for Pidgin
/moment/ps- locale for Pashto
/moment/rw- locale for Gahuza
/moment/so- locale for Somali
/moment/ti- locale for Tigrinya
The following locales have overrides to meet BBC World Service requirements where these differ from the upstream locale. Note that importing them will also cause the upstream locale to be loaded.
/moment/ar- locale override for Arabic
/moment/az- locale override for Azeri
/moment/bn- locale override for Bengali
/moment/es- locale override for Spanish (Mundo)
/moment/gu- locale override for Gujarati

/numerals - Numerals in several different number systems, e.g. Bengali, Burmese, Eastern Arabic, Western Arabic. This can be used for localised numbers for components. Returns arrays of the format
['0', '1', '2', '3', '4', '5', '6', '7', '8', '9', '10'];
These can either be imported and used directly or in conjunction with the
makeNumeralTranslator helper function below.
makeNumeralTranslator is a small helper that returns a function that translates any 'Western' Arabic numerals in the input string into the specified numeral system.
It accepts one argument
system which is an array of numeral system symbols such as one of the ones above, and returns a translator function. If the argument is omitted or an invalid numeral system is supplied then the translator returns input strings unchanged. Note that currently only the first 10 symbols from the array are used.
For an example see Usage, below.
npm install @bbc/psammead-locales --save
import moment from 'moment';import '@bbc/psammead-locales/moment/ig';moment;
import Bengali makeNumeralTranslator from '@bbc/psammead-locales/numerals';const translateNumerals = ;const result = ; // returns someInput with numbers translated to Bengali
