Extending messages hook

If you're a module author and want that module to provide extra messages for your project, you can merge them into the normally loaded messages by using the i18n:extend-messages hook.

To do this, in your module's setup file listen to the Nuxt hook and push your messages. @nuxtjs/i18n will do the rest.

This is particularly useful if your module use translated content and you want to offer to users nice default translations.


export default function () {
  const { nuxt } = this

  nuxt.hook('i18n:extend-messages', function (additionalMessages) {
      en: {
        'my-module-exemple': {
          hello: 'Hello from external module'
      fr: {
        'my-module-exemple': {
          hello: 'Bonjour depuis le module externe'

Now the project has access to new messages and can use them through $t('my-module-exemple.hello').

Because module's messages are merged with the project's ones, it's safer to prefix them.

Main project messages will always override the module's ones.
