A tiny internationalization library


A tiny language library. Put this on your page:

<script type="text/x-i18n-json">
        "numbers" {
            "one": "Un",
            "two": "Deux",
            "three": "Trois",
            "four": "Quatre"
        "sentence": "Ce est une phrase"

Then, you can use the lang function as follows:

var lang = require('lang');
lang('numbers.two'); //=> Deux 
lang('sentence'); //=> Ce est une phrase 

You can have multiple script tags and it'll merge the objects. The idea is that you output the JSON from the server using the already localised text, instead of putting localised text straight into your JavaScript.

If this library is too simple for you, check out something like i18next.

Add tests.

$ npm install --save lang

(note: used to be tiny-lang, and is still available as tiny-lang on npm, but that won't be updated)
