r18 is a crate intends to simplify the internationalisation of Rust projects.

Usage

Add r18 as your project dependency:

[dependencies]
r18 = "*"

Create a JSON translation file whose filename follows IETF BCP 47 language tag, like below (you can generate it by CLI Tool):

// PATH: ./tr/zh-CN.json
{
    "Hello, {}": "你好,{}"
}

Then add r18::init! to the global scope of your code with the directory where translation files in (in following example is ./tr).

r18::init!("tr");

After initialising the r18, use auto_detect! to detect locale and load translation model automatically.
If you want, you can use set_locale! to set locale manually.
After above process, use tr! to get your text which has been translated.

r18::init!("tr");

fn main() {
    r18::auto_detect!(); // get locale & set

    let name = "ho-229";
    println!("{}", tr!("Hello, {}", name));

    // reset locale to disable translation
    r18::set_locale!("");
    assert_eq!("Hello, ho-229", tr!("Hello, {}", name));
}

You can find a complete example here. You can run the example with following command:

cargo run -p example

CLI Tool Usage

Run the below command to install cargo r18:

cargo install cargo-r18

After creating the translation directory and writing code as above, you can run the following command to generate translation files (eg. TODO.zh-CN.json):

cargo r18 generate zh-CN

Additionally, you can generate todo files of untranslated texts after changing your source by:

cargo r18 update

LIMITATION: cargo r18 is only scanning macros named init and tr that it can NOT recognise which belong to r18 or not, you should make sure that no similar macros are named in your source before using cargo r18.

Run cargo r18 -h for more options.
