Getting Started

Configuration

Add this to your package's pubspec.yaml file:

dependencies:
  # stable version install from https://pub.dev/packages
  easy_localization: <last_version>

  # Dev version install from git REPO
  easy_localization:
    git: https://github.com/aissat/easy_localization.git

Load translations from local assets

You must create a folder in your project's root: the path. Some examples:

/assets/"langs" , "i18n", "locale" or anyname ...

/resources/"langs" , "i18n", "locale" or anyname ...

Inside this folder, must put the json files containing the translated keys :

path/${languageCode}-${countryCode}.json

example:

  • en.json to en-US.json
  • ar.json to ar-DZ.json
  • zh.json to zh-CN.json
  • zh.json to zh-TW.json

must declare the subtree in your pubspec.yaml as assets:

flutter:
  assets:
    - {`path`/{languageCode}-{countryCode}.json}

The next step :

Load translations from backend

You need to have backend endpoint (loadPath) where resources get loaded from and your endpoint must containing the translated keys.

example:

String loadPath = 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/aissat/easy_localization/master/example/resources/langs'

'${loadPath}/${languageCode}-${countryCode}.json'

The next step :

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:flutter_localizations/flutter_localizations.dart';
import 'package:easy_localization/easy_localization.dart';

void main() => runApp(EasyLocalization(child: MyApp()));

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    var data = EasyLocalizationProvider.of(context).data;
    return EasyLocalizationProvider(

        title: 'Flutter Demo',
        localizationsDelegates: [
          GlobalMaterialLocalizations.delegate,
          GlobalWidgetsLocalizations.delegate,
          //app-specific localization
          EasyLocalizationDelegate(
              locale: data.locale,
              loadPath: 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/aissat/easy_localization/master/example/resources/langs'),
        ],
        supportedLocales: [Locale('en', 'US'), Locale('ar', 'DZ')],
        locale: data.locale,
        theme: ThemeData(
          primarySwatch: Colors.blue,
        ),
        home: MyHomePage(title: 'Easy localization'),
