translator helper dustjs v2.0.5

A little helper for dustjs to load i18n translations dynamically, with variables, based on https://github.com/mikesparr/Kraken_Example_i18n_Helper. Feel free to comment, copy or burn this code =P

New version supporting kraken 2. Check the 1.x for kraken 1 and 2.x for kraken 2.

Getting Started

Install the module with: npm install translator-helper-dustjs

Its important to add a global variable to pass the kraken config to the module, i put in my index.js this after load kraken config

/* ... */
app = module.exports = express();
app.use(kraken(options));
global._app = app;
/* ... */
KrakenJs 2
/* ... */
//In your config file, using tag 2.x
    "dust": {
        "helpers": [
            "dust-makara-helpers",
            "translator-helper-dustjs"
        ]
    },
/* ... */
KrakenJs 1
/* ... */
// On your controllers file or wethever you load dust, add the helper like another, using tag 1.x
var dust = require('dustjs-linkedin');
require('dustjs-helpers');
require('translator-helper-dustjs');
/* ... */

Examples

On your properties files (index.properties)

/* ... */
jobs.acme.title=Company Acme
jobs.hernes.title=Company Hernes
/* ... */

On your dust template files, pass to the t helper the key (jobs.acme.title -> companyName = “acme”), the properties file (index in this case), and the lang (in my case “EN_us”)

/* ... */
{@t key="jobs.{companyName}.title" bundle="index" lang="{lang}" /}
/* ... */

And the result will be

/* ... */
Company Acme
/* ... */
