This module creates json files with i18n locales for Google Chrome extensions and applications from a CSV file.


npm install --save csv-locales


To create locales use a CSV file which generated from a spreadsheet with this structure.

You can use it as a grunt task or as a gulp task, or as in example below:

var csvLocales = require('csv-locales');

var params = {
  csvPath: 'path/to/the/file/locales.csv',
  dirPath: 'path/to/the/target/dir/_locales',
  csvParse: {/* CSV parser option or null */}

csvLocales(params, function (err) {
  if (err) {
    throw err;
  // All done!

Params available

  • csvPath - a path to the CSV file with locales.
  • dirPath - a path to the target directory. If it doesn't exist, it will be created.
  • csvParse — a list of options for the CSV parser.
