Open-source Ruby projects categorized as Internationalization

Top 11 Ruby Internationalization Projects

  • Globalize

    Rails I18n de-facto standard library for ActiveRecord model/data translation. (by globalize)

  • i18n-tasks

    Manage translation and localization with static analysis, for Ruby i18n

    Project mention: Identifying I18n translation keys | | 2023-03-14

    Why not i18n-tasks? 1.9k stars on GitHub. It's definitely a worthwhile dependency and probably why you're not seeing much free explanations because the gem is widely used.

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • i18n

    Internationalization (i18n) library for Ruby (by ruby-i18n)

    Project mention: Let's Talk About Globalization | | 2022-12-14

    I18n enables L10n. It is what makes your application responsive to the long list of L10n requirements. It will manipulate the way the data is delivered, it will change the design in case of an RTL (Right-to-Left) language, will pluralize words, manage time zones, etc… You might know that there are libraries that can help with that, but are you sure it is 1/ well maintained, 2/ following the standards? Wait, what standards? Ha! Glad you asked! Have you heard about Unicode? I won’t explain everything Unicode manages, but let's say simply that it is a Worldwide organization that defines the standards for character encoding and localization data for the industry (standards like ICU and CLDR, which probably deserve a separate article). The main libraries for internationalization use these standards. For example, Intl for front-end JS which is shipped with Node.JS, or ruby-i18n which is shipped with Rails. And let's not forget about mobile development: Android (using Java) and iOS (using Swift) are also using these standards behind the scene. Though while it's a good thing that these libraries cover the essentials, you also sometimes need to add some logic specific to your business, product, and users.
