metalsmith-multi-language

Instalation

$ npm install --save metalsmith-multi-language

Usage

Add the plugin:

var multiLanguage = require('metalsmith-multi-language');
 
Metalsmith(__dirname)
    .use(multiLanguage({ default: 'es', locales: ['en', 'es'] }))

The plugin needs both a default locale and the supported locales list. Note that default repeats in the locales array. default will act as the main locale while the others will be the secondary ones.

Append the locale to your file names (_{locale} with the underscore), e.g.:

index_es.md
index_en.md
path/file_es.md
path/file_en.md

Or put your files in locale-specific directories, e.g.:

path/es/file.md
path/en/file.md
path/es/subdir/file.md
path/en/subdir/file.md

Note that this plugin does not handle URL generation, if you need URLs in the :locale/:slug format or similar check metalsmith-permalinks.

Property merging

The plugin will merge properties from the main locale to the secondary ones. This is usefull if you want a property shared between all the locales (e.g.: date, template…).

locale property

Each file will have a locale property with its locale, if the filename does not have the locale extension the main locale will be set, e.g.: file_en.md locale property would be en, while for rand.md will be es.

lang() method

Each file will have a lang() method which is usefull to reference the translated files. So, if you're in the index_es.md file, and you want to get the english version just call lang('en').

If the locale is not found this will throw an expection.

defaultLocale & locales

Both options will be added to Metalsmith metadata as: defaultLocale and locales so that you can use them in your templates.

Index handling

The plugin will handle the index files gracefully, so that, if es is the main locale and en is the secondary one. This:

index_es.md
index_en.md

Becomes:

index.md
en/index.md

The plugin will also add a path property to each index file with the pretty path, e.g.: '' (empty string) for index.md and en/ for en/index.md.

Tests

npm test to run the tests.
