translated/localized stringfiles containing messages from Sails core and dependencies
Localized stringfile containing messages used in Sails command-line interface and runtime. This is one part of the effort towards making Sails more accessible to non-native English readers/speakers.
These files are here for future use-- this project is an early-stage work in progress.
- Environment variables are used to determine a user's locale. (defaults to English)
// From Sails core, an adapter, a generator, a hook, or some other dependency:var STRINGFILE = require'sails-stringfile';// Internally, this module runs node's native `util.format()` method,// so you can also template strings:var localizedMessage = STRINGFILE'cli.new.success' 'myApp' some:'stuff' 'more stuff'// Then, appropriate msg is brought in auf deutsch, espanol, traditional chinese, english, etc.console.loglocalizedMessage;
Current language support targets are:
- Traditional Chinese
(please send a PR if you have a request and we'll add it to this list!)
The existing strings need to be pulled out of log messages and errors in:
- sails core
- anchor core
- waterline core
- sails-adapter-* (adapters)
Code comments and other support files (like README) in newly generated sails modules (or a new project) should be pulled out into the generator scope and brought in using the same mechanism. This is only relevant for generators:
A stringfile needs to be created in the
localesin this repository for each language we want to support, mapping the string keys to a reasonable log message in the target language (the English stringfile is a good reference to see how a particular type of message should be worded, etc.).
