❗ Requirement

You need to install the follwoing:

  • rollup-plugin-vue@6.0.0-beta.4

If you use rollup-plugin-vue, We recommend you should read the docs

⭐ Features

  • i18n resources pre-compilation
  • i18n custom block

💿 Installation


$ npm i --save-dev @intlify/rollup-plugin-vue-i18n@next


$ yarn add -D @intlify/rollup-plugin-vue-i18n@next

🚀 Usages

i18n resource pre-compilation

Since vue-i18n@v9.0, The locale messages are handled with message compiler, which converts them to javascript functions after compiling. After compiling, message compiler converts them into javascript functions, which can improve the performance of the application.

However, with the message compiler, the javascript function conversion will not work in some environments (e.g. CSP). For this reason, vue-i18n@v9.0 and later offer a full version that includes compiler and runtime, and a runtime only version.

If you are using the runtime version, you will need to compile before importing locale messages by managing them in a file such as .json.

Rollup Config

The below rollup configi example:

import VuePlugin from 'rollup-plugin-vue'
import VueI18nPlugin from 'rollup-plugin-vue-i18n'
import resolve from '@rollup/plugin-node-resolve'
import commonjs from '@rollup/plugin-commonjs'
import path from 'path'

export default [
    input: path.resolve(__dirname, `./path/to/src/main.js`),
    output: {
      file: path.resolve(__dirname, `./path/to/dist/index.js`),
      format: 'cjs'
    plugins: [
      // set `customBlocks` opton to `rollup-plugin-vue`
      VuePlugin({ customBlocks: ['i18n'] }),
      // set `rollup-plugin-vue-i18n` after **`rollup-plugin-vue`**
        // `include` option for i18n resources bundling
        include: path.resolve(__dirname, `./path/to/src/locales/**`)
Notes on using with other i18n resource loading plugins

If you use the plugin like @rollup/plugin-json, make sure that the i18n resource to be pre-compiled with rollup-plugin-vue-i18n is not loaded. you need to filter with the plugin options.

i18n custom block

the below example that examples/composition/App.vue have i18n custom block:

    <label>{{ t('language') }}</label>
    <select v-model="locale">
      <option value="en">en</option>
      <option value="ja">ja</option>
  <p>{{ t('hello') }}</p>
  <Banana />

import { useI18n } from 'vue-i18n'
import Banana from './Banana.vue'

export default {
  name: 'App',
  components: {
  setup() {
    const { t, locale } = useI18n({
      inheritLocale: true,
      useScope: 'local'
    return { t, locale }

  "en": {
    "language": "Language",
    "hello": "hello, world!"
  "ja": {
    "language": "言語",
    "hello": "こんにちは、世界!"

Locale Messages formatting

You can be used by specifying the following format in the lang attribute:

  • json (default)
  • yaml
  • json5

example yaml foramt:

<i18n lang="yaml">
  hello: "Hello World!"
  hello: "こんにちは、世界!"

🔧 Options


  • Type: string | string[] | undefined

  • Default: undefined

    A minimatch pattern, or array of patterns, you can specify a path to pre-compile i18n resources files. The extensions of i18n resources to be precompiled are as follows:

    - json
    - json5
    - yaml
    - yml


  • Type: boolean

  • Default: false

    Whether pre-compile number and boolean values as message functions that return the string value.

    for example, the following json resources:

      "trueValue": true,
      "falseValue": false,
      "nullValue": null,
      "numberValue": 1

    after pre-compiled (development):

    export default {
      "trueValue": (()=>{const fn=(ctx) => {const { normalize: _normalize } = ctx;return _normalize(["true"])};fn.source="true";return fn;})(),
      "falseValue": (()=>{const fn=(ctx) => {const { normalize: _normalize } = ctx;return _normalize(["false"])};fn.source="false";return fn;})(),
      "nullValue": (()=>{const fn=(ctx) => {const { normalize: _normalize } = ctx;return _normalize(["null"])};fn.source="null";return fn;})(),
      "numberValue": (()=>{const fn=(ctx) => {const { normalize: _normalize } = ctx;return _normalize(["1"])};fn.source="1";return fn;})()

    Configration example:

    import VuePlugin from 'rollup-plugin-vue'
    import VueI18nPlugin from 'rollup-plugin-vue-i18n'
    import resolve from '@rollup/plugin-node-resolve'
    import commonjs from '@rollup/plugin-commonjs'
    import path from 'path'
    export default [
        input: path.resolve(__dirname, `./src/main.js`),
        output: {
          file: path.resolve(__dirname, `./dist/index.js`),
          format: 'cjs'
        plugins: [
          VuePlugin({ customBlocks: ['i18n'] }),
            include: path.resolve(__dirname, `./path/to/src/locales/**`)

Vue-i18n Rollup Plugin for Custom Blocks

How To Customize WordPress Plugins? (4 Easy Ways To Do)

This is image title
WordPress needs no introduction. It has been in the world for quite a long time. And up till now, it has given a tough fight to leading web development technology. The main reason behind its remarkable success is, it is highly customizable and also SEO-friendly. Other benefits include open-source technology, security, user-friendliness, and the thousands of free plugins it offers.

Talking of WordPress plugins, are a piece of software that enables you to add more features to the website. They are easy to integrate into your website and don’t hamper the performance of the site. WordPress, as a leading technology, has to offer many out-of-the-box plugins.

However, not always the WordPress would be able to meet your all needs. Hence you have to customize the WordPress plugin to provide you the functionality you wished. WordPress Plugins are easy to install and customize. You don’t have to build the solution from scratch and that’s one of the reasons why small and medium-sized businesses love it. It doesn’t need a hefty investment or the hiring of an in-house development team. You can use the core functionality of the plugin and expand it as your like.

In this blog, we would be talking in-depth about plugins and how to customize WordPress plugins to improve the functionality of your web applications.

What Is The Working Of The WordPress Plugins?

Developing your own plugin requires you to have some knowledge of the way they work. It ensures the better functioning of the customized plugins and avoids any mistakes that can hamper the experience on your site.

1. Hooks

Plugins operate primarily using hooks. As a hook attaches you to something, the same way a feature or functionality is hooked to your website. The piece of code interacts with the other components present on the website. There are two types of hooks: a. Action and b. Filter.

A. Action

If you want something to happen at a particular time, you need to use a WordPress “action” hook. With actions, you can add, change and improve the functionality of your plugin. It allows you to attach a new action that can be triggered by your users on the website.

There are several predefined actions available on WordPress, custom WordPress plugin development also allows you to develop your own action. This way you can make your plugin function as your want. It also allows you to set values for which the hook function. The add_ action function will then connect that function to a specific action.

B. Filters

They are the type of hooks that are accepted to a single variable or a series of variables. It sends them back after they have modified it. It allows you to change the content displayed to the user.

You can add the filter on your website with the apply_filter function, then you can define the filter under the function. To add a filter hook on the website, you have to add the $tag (the filter name) and $value (the filtered value or variable), this allows the hook to work. Also, you can add extra function values under $var.

Once you have made your filter, you can execute it with the add_filter function. This will activate your filter and would work when a specific function is triggered. You can also manipulate the variable and return it.

2. Shortcodes

Shortcodes are a good way to create and display the custom functionality of your website to visitors. They are client-side bits of code. They can be placed in the posts and pages like in the menu and widgets, etc.

There are many plugins that use shortcodes. By creating your very own shortcode, you too can customize the WordPress plugin. You can create your own shortcode with the add_shortcode function. The name of the shortcode that you use would be the first variable and the second variable would be the output of it when it is triggered. The output can be – attributes, content, and name.

3. Widgets

Other than the hooks and shortcodes, you can use the widgets to add functionality to the site. WordPress Widgets are a good way to create a widget by extending the WP_Widget class. They render a user-friendly experience, as they have an object-oriented design approach and the functions and values are stored in a single entity.

How To Customize WordPress Plugins?

There are various methods to customize the WordPress plugins. Depending on your need, and the degree of customization you wish to make in the plugin, choose the right option for you. Also, don’t forget to keep in mind that it requires a little bit of technical knowledge too. So find an expert WordPress plugin development company in case you lack the knowledge to do it by yourself.

1. Hire A Plugin Developer3
This is image title

One of the best ways to customize a WordPress plugin is by hiring a plugin developer. There are many plugin developers listed in the WordPress directory. You can contact them and collaborate with world-class WordPress developers. It is quite easy to find a WordPress plugin developer.

Since it is not much work and doesn’t pay well or for the long term a lot of developers would be unwilling to collaborate but, you will eventually find people.

2. Creating A Supporting Plugin

If you are looking for added functionality in an already existing plugin go for this option. It is a cheap way to meet your needs and creating a supporting plugin takes very little time as it has very limited needs. Furthermore, you can extend a plugin to a current feature set without altering its base code.

However, to do so, you have to hire a WordPress developer as it also requires some technical knowledge.

3. Use Custom Hooks

Use the WordPress hooks to integrate some other feature into an existing plugin. You can add an action or a filter as per your need and improve the functionality of the website.

If the plugin you want to customize has the hook, you don’t have to do much to customize it. You can write your own plugin that works with these hooks. This way you don’t have to build a WordPress plugin right from scratch. If the hook is not present in the plugin code, you can contact a WordPress developer or write the code yourself. It may take some time, but it works.

Once the hook is added, you just have to manually patch each one upon the release of the new plugin update.

4. Override Callbacks

The last way to customize WordPress plugins is by override callbacks. You can alter the core functionality of the WordPress plugin with this method. You can completely change the way it functions with your website. It is a way to completely transform the plugin. By adding your own custom callbacks, you can create the exact functionality you desire.

We suggest you go for a web developer proficient in WordPress as this requires a good amount of technical knowledge and the working of a plugin.

8 Popular Websites That Use The Vue.JS Framework

In this article, we are going to list out the most popular websites using Vue JS as their frontend framework.

Vue JS is one of those elite progressive JavaScript frameworks that has huge demand in the web development industry. Many popular websites are developed using Vue in their frontend development because of its imperative features.

This framework was created by Evan You and still it is maintained by his private team members. Vue is of course an open-source framework which is based on MVVM concept (Model-view view-Model) and used extensively in building sublime user-interfaces and also considered a prime choice for developing single-page heavy applications.

Released in February 2014, Vue JS has gained 64,828 stars on Github, making it very popular in recent times.

Evan used Angular JS on many operations while working for Google and integrated many features in Vue to cover the flaws of Angular.

“I figured, what if I could just extract the part that I really liked about Angular and build something really lightweight." - Evan You

Create a i18n Plugin with Composition API in Vue.js 3

The way plugins are coded in Vue.js 3 with Composition API differ from traditional plugins. Traditional are used via a install function and added using Vue.use(plugin). They usually manipulate/extend the Vue prototype.

However, in Composition API plugins are non-manipulative and coded using an inject-provide pattern. For instance, you can create a i18n plugin like this:

// i18nPlugin.js
import { ref, provide, inject } from "@vue/composition-api";

const createI18n = config => ({
  locale: ref(config.locale),
  messages: config.messages,
  $t(key) {
    return this.messages[this.locale.value][key];

const i18nSymbol = Symbol();

export function provideI18n(i18nConfig) {
  const i18n = createI18n(i18nConfig);
  provide(i18nSymbol, i18n);

export function useI18n() {
  const i18n = inject(i18nSymbol);
  if (!i18n) throw new Error("No i18n provided!!!");

  return i18n;

As you can see, the functions provide and inject are used to create the plugin instance and hold it in a dependency injection mechanism.

Check that we use ref for the locales, since we need the to be reactive.

If you’re not very familiar yet with Composition API, please read the tip to easily migrate to Composition API and how to use old instance properties to get a bit more in detail about it.

Then, once in the app you must initialize the plugin with the right configuration by using the provideI18n function. That’s usually done in the root App.vue component:

  import { provideI18n } from "./i18nPlugin";
  import HelloWorld from "./HelloWorld";

  export default {
    components: { HelloWorld },
    setup() {
        locale: "en",
        messages: {
          en: {
            hello_world: "Hello world"
          es: {
            hello_world: "Hola mundo"

A look at more features from the vue-i18n plugin for dealing with i18n in your Vue apps

Today we’ll be covering how a number of formatting options available with the vue-i18n plugin for internationalization (i18n). We’ll also be covering how to handle fallbacks when no string is available for a locale. We’ll be using the vue-i18n plugin written by Kazuya Kawaguchi, and this article is building up from this previous one, which introduces using vue-i18n for internationalization (i18n) in Vue.js apps.

vue-i18n provides a number of ways to format your app strings. We can even define a custom formatter if you don’t like the default style. We can also provide fallbacks that are useful when we’re missing strings for a given locale.
