Language (wb.lang)

WET's language is derived from the html element's lang attribute. A formatted version of the page's language code is stored in the wb.lang variable.

By default, the variable's value will be derived from the first two characters of the page's language code. If a longer code is specified, it'll be re-used as the variable's value so long as it corresponds to one of WET's built-in languages (i.e. pt-BR for Portuguese [Brazilian] or zh-Hans for Chinese [Simplified]).

Implementations that want to provide custom i18n files for longer language codes (e.g. en-CA, en-US, etc) can do so by adding data-wb-core and data-lang-long="" attributes to WET's script element.

WET will also attempt to load an i18n file named after the variable. Plugins won't initialize if the i18n file fails to load.


Type Option Description How to configure Values
HTML attribue data-wb-core Customizes WET's core variables. Use with other data-* attributes. Add a data-wb-core attribute to WET's script element None
HTML attribue data-lang-long Extends wb.lang's support for long language codes (> 2 characters). Use with the data-wb-core attribute. Add a data-wb-core attribute to WET's script element Space-separated BCP 47 language codes
