Ruby runtime methods for CLDR plural rules (see camertron/cldr-plurals).
gem install cldr-plurals-runtime-rb
The CLDR data set contains plural information for numerous languages in an expression-based format defined by Unicode's TR35. The document describes how to determine the various parts of a number and how to use those parts to determine the plural rule. The parts as they appear in TR35 are:
|n||absolute value of the source number (integer and decimals).|
|i||integer digits of n.|
|v||number of visible fraction digits in n, with trailing zeros.|
|w||number of visible fraction digits in n, without trailing zeros.|
|f||visible fractional digits in n, with trailing zeros.|
|t||visible fractional digits in n, without trailing zeros.|
|c/e||compact decimal exponent value|
cldr-plurals-runtime-rb is an implementation of these calculations in Ruby. You can use them via the
CldrPlurals::RubyRuntime module. Note that all methods take a stringified number as input:
num = '1.04' ::.(num) # => 1.04 ::.(num) # => 1
This runtime was created primarily for the cldr-plurals project, which can parse and emit Ruby code for a set of plural rules. Here's an example:
require 'cldr-plurals' require 'cldr-plurals/ruby_runtime' rules = ::Compiler::RuleList.new(:ru).tap do |rule_list| rule_list.add_rule(:one, 'v = 0 and i % 10 = 1 and i % 100 != 11') rule_list.add_rule(:few, 'v = 0 and i % 10 = 2..4 and i % 100 != 12..14') rule_list.add_rule(:many, 'v = 0 and i % 10 = 0 or v = 0 and i % 10 = 5..9 or v = 0 and i % 100 = 11..14') end ruby_code = rules.to_code(:ruby) rule_proc = eval(ruby_code) rule_proc.call('3', ::) # => :few
No external requirements.
bundle exec rake should do the trick. Alternatively you can run
bundle exec rspec, which does the same thing.
