i18nextPhraseBackend - Phrase Strings backend for i18next

Description

This small library implements an example backend for i18next which retrieves the translations from Phrase OTA releases. The distribution should be created for i18next platform.

Usage

A demo project can be found at https://github.com/phrase/ota-web-demo

Basic usage

npm install --save @phrase/i18next-backend
import i18n from "i18next";
import { I18nextPhraseBackend } from "@phrase/i18next-backend";

i18n
  .use(I18nextPhraseBackend)
  .init({
    fallbackLng: 'en',
    backend: {
      distribution: 'DISTRIBUTION_ID',
      secret: 'YOUR_ENVIRONMENT_SECRET',
      appVersion: '1.0.0',
    }
  });

Caching

The library is caching translations and won't check for new translations for 5 minutes. This can be configured by setting the cacheExpirationTime option in the backend configuration for testing purposes. It's recommended to use at least 5 minutes in production.

i18n
  .use(I18nextPhraseBackend)
  .init({
    fallbackLng: 'en',
    backend: {
      distribution: 'DISTRIBUTION_ID',
      secret: 'YOUR_ENVIRONMENT_SECRET',
      appVersion: '1.0.0',
      cacheExpirationTime: 60 * 5, // time in seconds
    }
  });
