angular-translate Pluggable Loader

Build Status semantic-release npm version Bower version
This library has been designed for Angular 1.5

Pluggable Loader is a custom loader for angular-translate. It aims to facilitate the modularization of the applications s.t. each module can contribute their own translations and possibly be independent in the kind of angular-translate loader it uses.
  • where it all started:


Available as npm package
$ npm install angular-translate-loader-pluggable --save

or as Bower package
$ bower install angular-translate-loader-pluggable --save

Docs & Demo

Plunkr demo:
Configure your app to use the pluggable loader:
angular.module('demoapp', [
  .config(function translationConfig($translateProvider, translatePluggableLoaderProvider) {

Then, in your angular modules where you want to contribute new translations, use the translatePluggableLoaderProvider instead of the $translateProvider.
angular.module('staticTranslationsModule', ['angular-translate-loader-pluggable'])
  .config(function(translatePluggableLoaderProvider) {
      .translations('de', {
        "anotherMessage": "Anderes Message!"
      .translations('en', {
        "anotherMessage": "Some Message!"

You can also use other loaders, such as the partial loader:
  .module('partialModule', ['angular-translate-loader-pluggable'])
  .config(function(translatePluggableLoaderProvider, $translatePartialLoaderProvider){
    // this module uses the $translatePartialLoader
    translatePluggableLoaderProvider.useLoader('$translatePartialLoader', {
      urlTemplate: '{part}-locale-{lang}.json'


Note that I'm not registering the $translatePartialLoader on the $translateProvider but instead on the translatePluggableLoderProvider so that it can handle it.
Your loader doesn't work? Let me know about it!
