i18n Tutorial using Mantine

Is there any tutorial for creating language dropdown using Mantine? https://refine.dev/docs/guides-concepts/i18n/#changing-the-locale is great, but using antd. Is there similar link using mantine? what is the mantine version for this component?
import { Avatar, Button, Dropdown, Layout, Menu, Space } from "antd";
import { Avatar, Button, Dropdown, Layout, Menu, Space } from "antd";
Internationalization (i18n) | Refine
Internationalization (i18n) is a process that allows software applications to be localized for different regions and languages. Refine can work with any i18n framework, but needs an i18nProvider to be created based on the chosen library.

Hi @yohan. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- I'm sorry, but the provided extracts do not contain a tutorial or example for creating a language dropdown using Mantine in a Refine application. The extracts do provide information on how to use Mantine components in general, but they do not specifically address the creation of a language dropdown. As for the Mantine equivalent of the Ant Design components you've mentioned, here are some possible counterparts based on the information in the extracts: - Avatar: Mantine does not seem to have a direct equivalent for the Avatar component. However, you might be able to create a similar component using other Mantine components or styling. - Button: Mantine has a Button component. - Dropdown: Mantine has a Menu component that can be used to create dropdown menus. - Layout: Mantine does not seem to have a direct equivalent for the Layout component. You would likely need to use CSS or a grid system to create layouts. - Menu: Mantine has a Menu component. - Space: Mantine does not seem to have a direct equivalent for the Space component. You would likely need to use CSS for spacing. Please note that while these Mantine components have similar names to the Ant Design components, they might not have the exact same functionality or API. You should refer to the Mantine documentation (https://mantine.dev) for more information on how to use these components. As for the version of Mantine used in Refine, the extracts indicate that Refine's Mantine integration currently uses Mantine v5. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

do you have i18n sample to translate table header using mantine? @kapa.ai do you have i18n sample to translate table header using mantine?

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Based on the provided extracts, there isn't a specific example of translating table headers using Mantine in a Refine application. However, you can use the useTranslate hook provided by Refine to translate any text in your application, including table headers. Here's a general example of how you might use it in a table:
import { useTranslate } from "@refinedev/core";
import { Table } from "@refinedev/mantine";

export const MyTable: React.FC = () => {
const translate = useTranslate();

return (
<Table>
<Table.Column
dataIndex="title"
title={translate("myResource.fields.title")}
/>
{/* other columns */}
</Table>
);
};
import { useTranslate } from "@refinedev/core";
import { Table } from "@refinedev/mantine";

export const MyTable: React.FC = () => {
const translate = useTranslate();

return (
<Table>
<Table.Column
dataIndex="title"
title={translate("myResource.fields.title")}
/>
{/* other columns */}
</Table>
);
};
In this example, "myResource.fields.title" is a translation key. You would replace "myResource" with the name of your resource, and "title" with the name of the field. You would define these translation keys in your translation files, as described in the i18n guide (https://refine.dev/docs/guides-concepts/i18n#translation-file). Please note that this is a general example and might not work out of the box depending on your setup. You should refer to the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs) and the Mantine documentation (https://mantine.dev) for more information on how to use these libraries. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

why the language is not change automatically after I select the dropdown? Why I need to refresh the page? @kapa.ai why the language is not change automatically after I select the dropdown? Why I need to refresh the page?
kapa.ai

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Based on the provided extracts, the language change requires a page refresh because the locale state change does not automatically trigger a re-render of the entire application. When you select a new language from the dropdown, the locale state is updated and stored in localStorage, but this does not cause the components to re-render with the new translations. In the following code snippet, the locale is changed and the page is reloaded to reflect the new language:
<Radio.Group
value={role}
onChange={(event) => {
localStorage.setItem("role", event.target.value);
location.reload();
}}
>
<Radio.Button value="admin">Admin</Radio.Button>
<Radio.Button value="editor">Editor</Radio.Button>
</Radio.Group>
<Radio.Group
value={role}
onChange={(event) => {
localStorage.setItem("role", event.target.value);
location.reload();
}}
>
<Radio.Button value="admin">Admin</Radio.Button>
<Radio.Button value="editor">Editor</Radio.Button>
</Radio.Group>
If you want the language change to take effect immediately without a page refresh, you would need to ensure that all components that display translated text re-render when the locale state changes. This could potentially involve significant changes to your application structure and may impact performance, depending on the size and complexity of your application. For more information on handling state changes and re-renders in React, you may find the React documentation (https://reactjs.org/docs/state-and-lifecycle.html) helpful. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

why the locale back to default when i refresh the page? @kapa.ai why the locale back to default when i refresh the page?
kapa.ai
kapa.ai4mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Based on the provided extracts, the locale might be reverting to the default because the current locale is not being stored persistently. When you refresh the page, any state held in memory is lost, and the application reverts to its initial state. In a typical i18n setup, the current locale is stored in a persistent storage like localStorage or cookies. When the application loads, it checks this storage to see if a locale has been set. If it has, it uses that locale; otherwise, it uses the default locale. Here's a simplified example of how you might implement this:
import { useEffect, useState } from 'react';
import i18n from 'i18next';

export const MyApp = () => {
const [locale, setLocale] = useState(localStorage.getItem('locale') || 'en');

useEffect(() => {
i18n.changeLanguage(locale);
}, [locale]);

const handleLocaleChange = (newLocale) => {
localStorage.setItem('locale', newLocale);
setLocale(newLocale);
};

// ...
};
import { useEffect, useState } from 'react';
import i18n from 'i18next';

export const MyApp = () => {
const [locale, setLocale] = useState(localStorage.getItem('locale') || 'en');

useEffect(() => {
i18n.changeLanguage(locale);
}, [locale]);

const handleLocaleChange = (newLocale) => {
localStorage.setItem('locale', newLocale);
setLocale(newLocale);
};

// ...
};
In this example, when the MyApp component mounts, it checks localStorage for a locale item. If it exists, it uses that as the initial locale; otherwise, it uses 'en'. When the locale changes, it updates both localStorage and the locale state, triggering a re-render with the new locale. Please note that this is a simplified example and might not work out of the box depending on your setup. You should refer to the i18n documentation (https://www.i18next.com/overview/api#changelanguage) for more information on how to use the changeLanguage method. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
