Language Switcher - Component template for Magnolia CMS
A simple control to allow users to switch the language on the website. Displays all languages configured for the current site.
The control can render as an unordered list or as a select box. How it renders can be configured by developers via parameters in the definition, and by authors in the dialog.
Make the component available to authors, and include the files in
webresources on your pages using standard magnolia techniques.
(To make this component available on the mtk basic page, you could use the decoration included in
select to set the type of the control to be rendered when an author does not set a specific type.
To see a demo page demonstrating this component, open the Pages app in Magnolia AdminCentral and import the files in
_dev/demos. (Import it directly at the root of the tree to see a demo of the included css styling.)

Contribute to the Magnolia component ecosystem
It's easy to create components for Magnolia and share them on github and npm. I invite you to do so and join the community. Let's stop wasting time by developing the same thing again and again, rather let's help each other out by sharing our work and create a rich library of components.
magnolia-light-module as a keyword to the package.json to make them easy to find and use.
