Installation

npm install iso-locales

ISO Locale

This library manages a collection of ISOLocale/s, completed with differents sources (see dependencies below). The main index is coming from: https://github.com/TiagoDanin/Windows-Locale

interface ISOLocale {
    tag: string;
    tag_bcp47?: BCP47Data;
 
    lcid: number;
    lcid_parts: LCIDParts;
 
    language: string;           // UI Friendly name (EN)
    language_local?: string;    // UI Native name
    language_iso639?: ISO639Data;
 
    region?: string;            // UI Friendly name (EN)
    region_iso3166?: ISO3166Data;
 
    script?: string;
    script_iso15924?: ISO15924Data;
}
 
// return all locales
function getLocales(): ISOLocale[];

You can search for a locale:

function find(predicate: (value: ISOLocale, index: number, obj: ISOLocale[]) => unknown, thisArg?: any): ISOLocale | undefined;
function findByLanguage(text: string): ISOLocale | undefined;
function findByLanguageLocal(text: string): ISOLocale | undefined;
function findByRegion(text: string): ISOLocale | undefined;
function findByTag(text: string, ignorecase?: boolean = true): ISOLocale | undefined;
function findByLCID(id: number): ISOLocale | undefined;
 
function filter(callbackfn: (value: ISOLocale, index: number, array: ISOLocale[]) => unknown, thisArg?: any): ISOLocale[];
function filterByLanguage(text: string): ISOLocale[];
function filterByLanguageLocal(text: string): ISOLocale[];
function filterByRegion(text: string): ISOLocale[];
function filterByTag(text: string):ISOLocale[];
function filterByLCID(id: number): ISOLocale[];

LCID (RFC 5646)

A language ID is a 16 bit value which is the combination of a primary language ID and a secondary language ID. The bits are allocated as follows:

      +-----------------------+-------------------------+
      |     Sublanguage ID    |   Primary Language ID   |
      +-----------------------+-------------------------+
       15                   10 9                       0   bit

A locale ID (LCID) is a 32 bit value which is the combination of a language ID, a sort ID, and a reserved area. The bits are allocated as follows:

      +-------------+---------+-------------------------+
      |   Reserved  | Sort ID |      Language ID        |
      +-------------+---------+-------------------------+
       31         20 19     16 15                      0   bit
