connect-moment-i18n

Creates a localized moment instance for connect/express

Installation

npm install connect-moment-i18n

Usage

Initialize the middleware with:

var express = require('express'),
    connectMomentI18n = require('connect-moment-i18n'),
    app = express();

app.use(connectMomentI18n());

By default, the middleware creates a localized moment instance set to the language locale specified at req.locale and attaches it to req.moment. You may pass an options hash, described below, to the constructor in order to alter the middleware's behavior.

Options

localeKey

Specifies the key on the request object the locale can be found. Defaults to locale.

momentKey

Specifies the key on the request object at which the localized moment will be attached. Defaults to moment.

defaultLocale

Specifies the default locale to fallback to if a request does not include a value at localeKey. Defaults to en.

setDefaultLocale

When true, this will set the global default moment language (e.g.: moment.lang('en');) on instantiation. If false, moment will set the global language after the first server request which is likely unintended behavior. Defaults to true which is highly recommended.
