[Solved] Plugins specific languages and translation

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    What the best approach to handle "Plugins" specific languages and translation?

    Say i have a plugin, and i would like its "templates" (or JS) to use the translator, however, the keys are plugin-specific, for example:

    "Wrong Captcha"

    • Do I submit that to the NodeBB core language files?

    Is there a way to extend these files and report back to Transifex? or maybe should we just have a

    language/:language_code/plugins/:nodebb-plugin-:id.json?
    language/:language_code/themes/:nodebb-theme-:id.json?
    

    maybe generate this list of file automatically using npm API, kinda how you do for the ACP > Plugins tab?

    or could we do this the other way around? give each plugin the ability to extend the Translator's data, or feed it a language file? but how does that play with transifex? each plugin would need its own project right?

    I don't think it's a high priority issue, just something to think about.
    thanks


  • hey I just committed something like this a few days ago: https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/issues/1865 let me know if that's what you're looking for

    EDIT:

    each plugin would need its own project right? and yeah, ideally

  • Plugin & Theme Dev
