Compile Jade templates with internationalization support

Getting started

This plugin is exactly the same as grunt-contrib-jade, but it adds high level support for Jade template internationalization based on JSON/YAML/JS files

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

$ npm install grunt-jade-i18n --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-jade-i18n')

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.0

The "jade" task

Run this task with the grunt jade command.

Task targets, files and options may be specified according to the grunt Configuring tasks guide

This plugin provides a localization mechanism for Jade templates. Since localization is done once during the build process, there is no performance hit on the application, opposed to dynamic translation on the client side

Usage example

Gruntfile configuration
grunt.initConfig({
  jade: {
    templates: {
      options: {
        // jade i18n specific options
        i18n: {
          locales: 'locales/*.json',
          namespace: '$i18n'
        },
        // Jade specific options
        pretty: true
      },
      files: {
        "path/to/dest.html": ["path/to/templates/*.jade", "another/path/tmpl.jade"]
      }
    }
  }
})

See Gruntfile for more configuration examples

Example JSON locale file (es_ES.json)
{
  "hello": {
    "world": "Hola Mundo"
  }
}
Example Jade template with internationalization
body
  h1 #{$i18n.hello.world}!
  p Using locale #{$localeName}

Options

Only jade-i18n specific options are listed below

To see all the available options available, please see grunt-contrib-jade

locales

Type: String|Array

Path to localization files. Please check the examples in tests. Glob patterns can be used

JSON, YAML and JS formats are supported for the translation templates

namespace

Type: String Default: '$i18n'

Namespace to expose translation keys in Jade template

localeExtension

Type: Boolean Default: false

Generate the HTML output files with the extension prefix with the current language. By default it will create different folders for each language

Setting this option into true, the generated HTML files will look like this:

html/
├── view.en-en.html
└── view.es-es.html

... instead of:

html/
├── en-EN/
│   └── view.html
└── es-ES/
    └── view.html

See test for more examples
