@scaleway/use-i18n

A tiny hooks to handle i18n translation

Install

$ pnpm add @scaleway/use-i18n

Usage

Loading locales

Create a directory with your locales. Use of local variables and namespace to dynamically load locales.

Exemple :

📦locales
 ┣ 📂de
 ┃ ┗ 📜common.json
 ┣ 📂en
 ┃ ┗ 📜common.json
 ┗ 📂fr
 ┃ ┗ 📜common.json

your loaders will be:

const load = ({ locale, namespace }) =>
  import(`./locales/${locale}/${namespace}`)
const loadDateLocale = locale => import(`date-fns/locale/${locale}/index`)

Inside your app you will need to use useTranslation to load namespace locales.

if you want to have pre-load locales you can use defaultTranslations.

import I18n from '@scaleway/use-i18n'
import defaultTranslations from './locales/en/common'

const App = () => (
  <I18n
    loadDateLocale={loadDateLocale}
    defaultLocale="en"
    supportedLocales={['en']}
    defaultTranslations={defaultTranslations}
  >
    <App />
  </I18n>
)
import React from 'react'
import I18n from '@scaleway/use-i18n'

const Page = () => {
  // this will load locales based on `./locales/${currentLocale}/common.json`
  const { t } = useTranlation(['common'])

  return <h1>{t('title')}</h1>
}

const App = () => {
  const defaultLocales = ['fr', 'en']
  const defaultTranslations = {
    title: 'Welcome to I18n hooks',
  }

  const load = ({ locale, namespace }) =>
    import(`./locales/${locale}/${namespace}`)

  return (
    <I18n
      defaultLocale="en"
      supportedLocales={defaultLocales}
      defaultTranslations={defaultTranslations}
    >
      <Page />
    </I18n>
  )
}

useTranslation & useI18n

Theses both hooks are using the same context. useTranslation will load your locales with a use effect. Dynamique locale need to be loaded before using useI18n on an other file.

import { useTranslation } from '@scaleway/use-i18n'

const App = () => {
  const i18n = useTranslation(['app', 'common'])

  return <>{i18n.t('app.user')}(</>
}

In a case you will need to avoid somes useless re-render. you can wait that all your namespaces are loaded

import { useTranslation } from '@scaleway/use-i18n'

const App = () => {
  const namespaces = ['app', 'common']
  const { t, isLoaded } = useTranslation(namespaces)

  return isLoaded ? <>{t('app.user')}(</> : null
}
import { useI18n } from '@scaleway/use-i18n'

const { namespaceTranslation } = useI18n()
const t = namespaceTranslation('namespace.home.users.table.header')

use namespaceTranslation

Namespace translation help you when you have some very long key Exemple of your locale key: namespace.home.users.table.header.link

import { useI18n } from '@scaleway/use-i18n'

const { namespaceTranslation } = useI18n()
const t = namespaceTranslation('namespace.home.users.table.header')

use locales from date-fns

You will need sometimes to give locales to somes compoent In this example, we will use react-date-picker.js

import { useI18n } from '@scaleway/use-i18n'
import { DateInput } from '@scaleway/ui'

const App = () => {
  const { t, currentLocale, dateFnsLocale } = useI18n()

  return (
    <div>
      <DateInput
        currentLocale={currentLocale}
        locale={dateFnsLocale}
        label={t('form.fields.date.label')}
        placeholder={t('form.fields.date.placeholder')}
      />
    </div>
  )
}

formatDate

This hook exposes a formatDate function which can be used to format JS dates

The first parameter is anything that can be accepted as a valid JS Date (Date, number, string)

It accepts an options as second parameter which can eiter be one of predefined shorthand formats (see below) or an Intl.DateTimeFormat options object

Shorthand formats:

"long" => "February 13, 2020"
"short" => (default) "Feb 13, 2020"
"hour" => "February 13, 2020, 4:28 PM"
"hourOnly" => "4:28 PM"
"shortWithoutDay" => "Feb 2020"
"numeric" => "2020-02-13"
"numericHour" => "2020-02-13 4:28 PM"
import { useI18n } from '@scaleway/use-i18n'

const App = () => {
  const { formatDate } = useI18n()

  const units = [
    formatDate(new Date(2020, 1, 13, 16, 28)), // "Feb 13, 2020"
    formatDate(1581607680000, 'long'), // "February 13, 2020"
    formatDate('2020-02-13T15:28:00.000Z', {
      day: 'numeric',
      era: 'short',
      hour: '2-digit',
      minute: 'numeric',
      month: 'narrow',
      second: '2-digit',
      timeZoneName: 'long',
      weekday: 'long',
      year: '2-digit',
    }), // "Thursday, F 13, 20 AD, 04:28:00 PM Central European Standard Time""
  ]

  return <div>{units}</div>
}

formatList

This hook exposes a formatList function which can be used to format lists of strings.

The first parameter is an array of strings to format.

It accepts an options as second parameter which is an Intl.ListFormat options object.

import { useI18n } from '@scaleway/use-i18n'

const App = () => {
  const { formatList } = useI18n()

  const cities = [
    formatList(['Paris', 'New York', 'London']), // Paris, New York and London
    formatList(['Paris', 'New York', 'London'], {
      type: 'disjunction',
    }), // Paris, New York or London
  ]

  return <div>{cities}</div>
}

formatUnit

This hook also exposes a formatUnit function which can be used to format bits/bytes until ECMA-402 Unit Preferences is standardised

We follow the IEC standard (base 10) with SI units (kilo,mega,giga,...) more info here

It accepts an options as second parameter:

  • unit: Manadatory (see below)
  • maximumFractionDigits: The maximum number of fraction digits to use
  • minimumFractionDigits: The minimum number of fraction digits to use
  • short: if it should output the short or long form of the unit (think Kb vs kilobits)
import { useI18n } from '@scaleway/use-i18n'

const App = () => {
  const { formatUnit } = useI18n()

  const units = [
    formatUnit(12, { unit: 'kilobyte' }), // "12 KB" or "12 Ko" in fr an ro
    formatUnit(10 ** 8, { unit: 'bytes-humanized' }), // "100 MB" or "100 Mo" in fr an ro
    formatUnit(10 ** 8, { unit: 'bits-per-second-humanized' }), // "100Mbs"
  ]

  return <div>{units}</div>
}

We currently support two different unit:

  • byte
  • bit

With each some variants :

  • (kilo|mega|giga|tera|peta|exa|zetta|yotta)(bit|byte): This is the bare unit
    • formatUnit(12, { unit: 'megabyte' }) => "12 MB" or "12 Mo" (in fr/ro)
    • formatUnit(12, { unit: 'kilobit' }) => "12 Kb"
    • formatUnit(12, { unit: 'gigabit' }) => "12 Gb"
    • formatUnit(12, { unit: 'byte' }) => "12 B" or "12 o" (in fr/ro)
  • (byte|bit)s-humanized: This is an automated unit which will print a human readable value
    • formatUnit(1234567, { unit: 'bytes-humanized' }) => "1.23 MB" or "1.23 Mo" (in fr/ro)
  • (kilo|mega|giga|tera|peta|exa|zetta|yotta)(bit|byte)(byte|bit)-humanized: This is also an automated unit which will print a human readable value but in the unit specified
    • formatUnit(123456789, { unit: 'gigabyte-humanized' }) => "0.12 GB" or "0.12 Go" (in fr/ro)
    • formatUnit(123456789, { unit: 'kilobyte-humanized' }) => "123456.78 KB" or "123456.78 Ko" (in fr/ro)

There is also a compound variant which can only be used with bits:

  • (kilo|mega|giga|tera|peta|exa|zetta|yotta)bit-per-second
    • formatUnit(1.6, { unit: 'gigabit-per-second' }) => 1.6 Gbps
    • formatUnit(1.6, { unit: 'bit-per-second' }) => 1.6 bps
  • bits-per-second-humanized: Automated unit
    • formatUnit(123456789, { unit: 'bits-per-second-humanized' }) => 123.46 Mbps
  • (kilo|mega|giga|tera|peta|exa|zetta|yotta)bit-per-second-humanized: Humandreadable value in the unit specified
    • formatUnit(123456789, { unit: 'gigabit-per-second-humanized' }) => 0.12 Gbps
    • formatUnit(123456789, { unit: 'kilobit-per-second-humanized' }) => 123456.78 Kbps
