The frontend is currently built using Bootstrap, jQuery and few third party libraries.
Weblate supports the latest, stable releases of all major browsers and platforms.
Alternative browsers which use the latest version of WebKit, Blink, or Gecko, whether directly or via the platform’s web view API, are not explicitly supported. However, Weblate should (in most cases) display and function correctly in these browsers as well.
Older browsers might work, but some features might be limited.
The yarn package manager is used to update third party libraries. The
configuration lives in
scripts/yarn and there is a wrapper script
scripts/yarn-update to upgrade the libraries, build them and copy to
correct locations in
weblate/static/vendor, where all third partly
frontend code is located. The Weblate specific code should be placed directly
weblate/static or feature specific subdirectories (for example
Adding new third-party library typically consists of:
# Add a yarn package yarn --cwd scripts/yarn add PACKAGE # Edit the script to copy package to the static folder edit scripts/yarn-update # Run the update script ./scripts/yarn-update # Add files to git git add .
Should you need any user visible text in the frontend code, it should be
localizable. In most cases all you need is to wrap your text inside
function, but there are more complex features available:
document.write(gettext('this is to be translated')); var object_count = 1 // or 0, or 2, or 3, ... s = ngettext('literal for the singular case', 'literal for the plural case', object_count); fmts = ngettext('There is %s object. Remaining: %s', 'There are %s objects. Remaining: %s', 11); s = interpolate(fmts, [11, 20]); // s is 'There are 11 objects. Remaining: 20'
Weblate currently uses material design icons. In case you are looking for new symbol, check Material Design Icons or Material Design Resources.
Additionally, there is
scripts/optimize-svg to reduce size of the SVG
as most of the icons are embedded inside the HTML to allow styling of the
