NAME

Plack::Middleware::I18N - language detection

SYNOPSIS

    use Plack::Builder;

    builder {
        enable 'I18N', i18n => $i18n;

        ...
    };

DESCRIPTION

Plack::Middleware::I18N detects client's languages and set $env variables.

Language detection

All detected languages are validated against available languages.

From path

When PATH_INFO contains something like /en/path/to, then en is detected as a language and PATH_INFO is changed to /path/to.

From session

When psgix.session contains plack.i18n.language then it is used as a language. Session option is set after every detection.

From HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE

Detects language from HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE header using I18N::AcceptLanguage.

From custom callback

Sometimes a more sophisticated language detection is needed. Thus a custom callback can be provided. For example:

    enable 'I18N', custom_cb => sub {
        my ($env, $lang) = @_;

        return 'de';
    };

$env parameters

Plack::Middleware::I18N registers the following $env parameters:

plack.i18n

plack.i18n.language

Current detected language. A shortcut for $env-{'plack.i18n'}->language>.

plack.i18n.handle
