Implement Lua alternative to {{int:Lang}} / wgUserLanguage
Closed, DuplicatePublic


mw.getContentLanguage().code -- Returns the content language.
mw.getCurrentFrame():preprocess("{{PAGELANGUAGE}}") -- Returns the page language.
mw.getCurrentFrame():preprocess( "{{int:Lang}}" ) -- Returns the user language.

@daniel and I were chatting about this earlier. Looks like some kind of hidden magic function is able to provide the language of the user in Lua instead of using {{int:Lang}}. Get it to work and switch all modules in the module namespace on Commons to use it

@daniel : Can you please improve/expand this one? In T98307 allowDataAccessInUserLanguage is not ticked yet, but it seems to be enabled?

{{int:lang}} is itself a hack, not built into mediawiki.

At the moment many Lua modules on Commons call frame:callParserFunction( "int", "lang" ). Converting it to Lua function would be great, as it would allow easier sharing of the codes with wikis that do not have MediaWiki:Lang set up, although all that I checked have it.

The language of the user is available everywhere in all wikis ... except in Scribunto. And it's probably easy to do. And it's been waiting for so long!
