@enact/i18n npm (scoped)

Internationalization library based on iLib.

@enact/i18n provides a decorator that can be used to wrap a root component in a React (or Enact) application. This decorator provides a context to child components that can be used to determine locale text directionality and to update the current locale.


import {I18nContextDecorator, I18nDecorator} from '@enact/i18n/I18nDecorator';
import React from 'react';

const MyComponent = I18nContextDecorator(
    {rtlProp: 'rtl'},
    (props) => (
        <div>{props.rtl ? 'right to left' : 'left to right'}</div>

const MyApp = () => (
        <MyComponent />

const MyI18nApp = I18nDecorator(MyApp);

export default MyI18nApp;

Note: The @enact/i18n module will attempt to determine the locale automatically. Pass a locale prop ("en-US" for example) to this component where it is rendered to test.


npm install --save @enact/i18n


This module is built upon the iLib library.
