The user interface is translated with Weblate.

Every time a ns8 repository is updated, Github will notify Weblate. When new translations are avaialable, Weblate will create a new pull request on the target repository.

To setup the translation process:

  1. add GitHub Weblate app to your repository
  2. add your repository to hosted.weblate.org or ask a NethServer developer to add it to ns8 Weblate project

You can automate the step 2 by using the following weblate-add script.

set -e

curl \
    --fail \
    --data-binary '{
        "branch": "main",
        "file_format": "json-nested",
        "filemask": "ui/public/i18n/*/translation.json",
        "name": "'$name'",
        "slug": "'$name'",
        "repo": "https://github.com/NethServer/ns8-'$name'.git",
        "template": "ui/public/i18n/en/translation.json",
        "new_base": "",
        "vcs": "github",
        "license": "GPL-3.0-or-later"
    }' \
    -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
    -H "Authorization: Token $TOKEN" \

curl \
    --fail \
    -d '{"language_code": "it"}' \
    -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
    -H "Authorization: Token $TOKEN" \

Usage example, where TOKEN is your Weblate token:

TOKEN=xxxxxxxxxxxx bash weblate-add nextcloud
