    🚀 i18n resource pre-compilation

    Why do we need to require the configuration?

    Since vue-i18n@v9.0, The locale messages are handled with message compiler, which converts them to javascript functions after compiling. After compiling, message compiler converts them into javascript functions, which can improve the performance of the application.

    However, with the message compiler, the javascript function conversion will not work in some environments (e.g. CSP). For this reason, vue-i18n@v9.0 and later offer a full version that includes compiler and runtime, and a runtime only version.

    If you are using the runtime version, you will need to compile before importing locale messages by managing them in a file such as .json.

    You can pre-compile by configuring vue-i18n-loader as the webpack loader.

    webpack configration

    As an example, if your project has the locale messagess in src/locales, your webpack config will look like this:

    ├── dist
    ├── index.html
    ├── package.json
    ├── src
    │   ├── App.vue
    │   ├── locales
    │   │   ├── en.json
    │   │   └── ja.json
    │   └── main.js
    └── webpack.config.js
    
    import { createApp } from 'vue'
    import { createI18n } from 'vue-i18n' // import from runtime only
    import App from './App.vue'
    
    // import i18n resources
    import en from './locale/en.json'
    import ja from './locale/ja.json'
    
    const i18n = createI18n({
      locale: 'ja',
      messages: {
        en,
        ja
      }
    })
    
    const app = createApp(App)
    app.use(i18n)
    app.mount('#app')

    In the case of the above project, you can use vue-i18n with webpack configuration to the following for runtime only:

    module.exports = {
      module: {
        rules: [
          // ...
          {
            test: /\.(json5?|ya?ml)$/, // target json, json5, yaml and yml files
            type: 'javascript/auto',
            loader: '@intlify/vue-i18n-loader',
            include: [ // Use `Rule.include` to specify the files of locale messages to be pre-compiled
              path.resolve(__dirname, 'src/locales')
            ]
          },
          // ...
        ]
      }
    }

    The above uses webpack's Rule.include to specify the i18n resources to be precompiled. You can also use Rule.exclude to set the target.

    🚀 i18n custom block

    The below example that App.vue have i18n custom block:

    i18n resource definition

    <template>
      <p>{{ t('hello') }}</p>
    </template>
    
    <script>
    import { useI18n } from 'vue-i18n'
    
    export default {
      name: 'app',
      setup() {
        const { t, locale } = useI18n({
          // ...
        })
    
        // Somthing todo ...
    
        return {
          // ...
          t,
          locale,
          // ...
          })
        }
      }
    }
    </script>
    
    <i18n>
    {
      "en": {
        "hello": "hello world!"
      },
      "ja": {
        "hello": "こんにちは、世界!"
      }
    }
    </i18n>

    The locale messages defined at i18n custom blocks are json format default.

    i18n resource importing

    You also can use src attribute:

    <i18n src="./myLang.json"></i18n>
    // ./myLang.json
    {
      "en": {
        "hello": "hello world!"
      },
      "ja": {
        "hello": "こんにちは、世界!"
      }
    }

    Locale of i18n resource definition

    You can define locale messages for each locale with locale attribute in single-file components:

    <i18n locale="en">
    {
      "hello": "hello world!"
    }
    </i18n>
    
    <i18n locale="ja">
    {
      "hello": "こんにちは、世界!"
    }
    </i18n>

    The above defines two locales, which are merged at target single-file components.

    Locale of i18n resource definition for global scope

    You can define locale messages for global scope with global attribute:

    <i18n global>
    {
      "en": {
        "hello": "hello world!"
      }
    }
    </i18n>

    i18n resource formatting

    Besides json format, You can be used by specifying the following format in the lang attribute:

    • yaml
    • json5

    example yaml foramt:

    <i18n locale="en" lang="yaml">
      hello: "hello world!"
    </i18n>
    
    <i18n locale="ja" lang="yml">
      hello: "こんにちは、世界!"
    </i18n>

    example json5 format:

    <i18n lang="json5">
    {
      "en": {
        // comments
        "hello": "hello world!"
      }
    }
    </i18n>

    JavaScript

    import { createApp } from 'vue'
    import { createI18n } from 'vue-i18n'
    import App from './App.vue'
    
    // setup i18n instance with globaly
    const i18n = createI18n({
      locale: 'ja',
      messages: {
        en: {
          // ...
        },
        ja: {
          // ...
        }
      }
    })
    
    const app = createApp(App)
    
    app.use(i18n)
    app.mount('#app')

    webpack Config

    vue-loader (next version):

    module.exports = {
      module: {
        rules: [
          // ...
          {
            resourceQuery: /blockType=i18n/,
            type: 'javascript/auto',
            loader: '@intlify/vue-i18n-loader'
          },
          // ...
        ]
      }
    }

    i18n custom block bridge mode

    To support in a smooth transition from vue-i18n@v8.x to vue-i18n@v9.x, we provide a mode that bundles the i18n custom block to be available in either version.

    This is for use when using vue-i18n@v8.x + vue-i18n-bridge.

    🔧 Options

    forceStringify

    • Type: boolean

    • Default: false

      Whether pre-compile number and boolean values as message functions that return the string value.

      for example, the following json resources:

      {
        "trueValue": true,
        "falseValue": false,
        "nullValue": null,
        "numberValue": 1
      }

      after pre-compiled (development):

      export default {
        "trueValue": (()=>{const fn=(ctx) => {const { normalize: _normalize } = ctx;return _normalize(["true"])};fn.source="true";return fn;})(),
        "falseValue": (()=>{const fn=(ctx) => {const { normalize: _normalize } = ctx;return _normalize(["false"])};fn.source="false";return fn;})(),
        "nullValue": (()=>{const fn=(ctx) => {const { normalize: _normalize } = ctx;return _normalize(["null"])};fn.source="null";return fn;})(),
        "numberValue": (()=>{const fn=(ctx) => {const { normalize: _normalize } = ctx;return _normalize(["1"])};fn.source="1";return fn;})()
      }

      webpack configration:

      module.exports = {
        module: {
          rules: [
            // ...
            {
              test: /\.(json5?|ya?ml)$/,
              type: 'javascript/auto',
              include: [path.resolve(__dirname, './src/locales')],
              use: [
                {
                  loader: '@intlify/vue-i18n-loader',
                  options: {
                    forceStringify: true
                  }
                }
              ]
            },
            // ...
          ]
        }
      }

    productionSourceMap

    • Type: boolean

    • Default: false

      Whether to generate source map.

    bridge

    • Type: boolean

    • Default: false

      The mode to birdge the i18n custom block to work in both vue-i18n@v8.x and vue-i18n@v9.x environments.

      To support in a smooth transition from vue-i18n@v8.x to vue-i18n@v9.x, we provide a mode that bundles the i18n custom block to be available in either version.

      ⚠️ Note that if you set bridge: true, the bundle size will increase. It is recommended to disable this mode after the migration from vue-i18n@v8.26 to vue-i18n@v9.x is completed.

    useClassComponent

    • Type: boolean

    • Default: false

      This option that to use i18n custom blocks in vue-class-component.
