Fluent Handlebars runtime helper: An extension crate for Fluent Templates

The fluent_templates crate includes a helper for the Handlebars template framework that lets you provide values for Fluent placeables at build time. fluent-handlebars-runtime adds a helper that resolves placeables using the data hash you pass into the Handlebars render_template method.

For example, if your FTL files look like this:

into-place = One does not simply walk into {$place}

into-place = On ne marche pas simplement à {$place}

You can then pass the replacement values at runtime:

#
let data = serde_json::json!({
    "lang": "en-US",
    "place": "Mordor"
});

let mut handlebars = Handlebars::new();
handlebars.register_helper("t", Box::from(FluentHandlebars::new(&loader)));
assert_eq!(
    format!("{}", handlebars.render_template(r#"{{t "into-place"}}"#, &data).unwrap()),
    "One does not simply walk into Mordor"
);

let data = serde_json::json!({
    "lang": "fr",
    "place": "Mordor"
});

assert_eq!(
    format!("{}", handlebars.render_template(r#"{{t "into-place"}}"#, &data).unwrap()),
    "On ne marche pas simplement à Mordor"
);

This allows you to substitute values into your localized strings that can only be known at runtime.

By convention, we call this helper "t" in the interest of keeping templates terse, but you can use a more verbose identifier (e.g. "translate" or "localize") if you find that more readable.

#
#
handlebars.register_helper("translate", Box::from(FluentHandlebars::new(&loader)));
assert_eq!(
    format!("{}",
        handlebars.render_template(r#"{{translate "into-place"}}"#, &data).unwrap()
    ),
    "One does not simply walk into Mordor"
);
