    Module for AngularJS easy localization.


    npm install ng.locale After installation you should add 'ng.locale' as a required module to your app.


    There is one way to configure ngLocale module. For this you should add ngLocaleConfigProvider to your app config section and add a list of params:

        localUrl: 'locale_url',
        restUrl: 'rest_url',
        prefix: 'your_prefix',
        toStore: false
    • locale_url - it's yor locale url for localization. usually it's link to local static json file
    • rest_url - if you want to request localization from a server
    • prefix - if you have a prefix in your localization keys
    • toStore - if you want module to store localization in local storage, then you should choose true for this option.

    Additionally, if you have a need to add something during the work of your application or you want to edit your localization in store, you can do it like that:



    • localeObject - custom object with { key: value } pairs, which will extend your locale object if it exists or just add new values if it does not

    It is important to know, that you should not add prefix to your keys, because method will use prefix from the configuration.

    How to use

    As attribute To use module as an attribute you should just write this:

    <span ng-locale="locale_key"></span>
    <span ng-locale="{{$scope.localeKey}}"></span>

    Module will bind localized value to this span element. If attribute does not find the value for your key, it will return empty string as a result (using service).

    As a filter If you want to use module as a filter, you can write this:

    {{ 'locale_key' | localize }}

    and the key will be replaced with localized value. If filter does not find the value for your key, it will return undefined as a result.

    As a service in controller If you want to use module in your code, first of all you should add ngLocaleService as a DI to your controller/service. Then you can use service like this:

    var self = this;
    ngLocaleService.$$get('locale_key').then(function (response) {
      self.translate = response;

    If service does not find the value for your key, it will return empty string as a result.

    Also, if you need to localize more than one key, you should just add all of them as parameters:

    var self = this;
    ngLocaleService.$$get('key1', 'key2', 'key3').then(function (response) {
      self.key1 = response['key1'];
      self.key2 = response['key2'];
      self.key3 = response['key3'];

    In that case service will return object, where keys will be your params and values for this keys - localized strings (or empty string).

    If you find bug or you have any idea how to do better, I'll be glad to here about it and to improve ngLocale for you.


    npm i ng.locale
