Ahoy, me hearties - it is time for ye landlubbers to charter a course for thee Cap’n! And ye best be taking the fastest route or ye be walkin the plank! What’s the matter, you scallywag? Have you never heard Pirate before? Well, blimey! In honor of International Talk Like A Pirate Day, Mapzen is highlighting this Pirate narrative language with the hopes that this will act as the catalyst that will encourge the contribution of other languages for Mapzen Turn-by-Turn.
While a few of ye scurvy dogs have been busy swabbing the deck, some of the savvy buccaneers have been busy contributing languages so that the Mapzen Turn-by-Turn service may be used in all ports. We would save ye the finest rum as a token of our appreciation, but as ye know, the rum is always gone. Therefore, a thank you will have to suffice.
Currently, we support the following languages:
Look at the treasure map below, me scurvey dogs, and find a demo that is using the Pirate narrative language! Set sail on a voyage to the Carolina coast!
And to help you buckos achieve success, the first mate has provided a link to the repository where the languages are stored. And shiver me timbers - there are also instructions on how to contribute your own language, which are detailed below:
Czech/Czech Republic example:
posix_localevalue in your new file. The character encoding must be UTF-8. The typical format is:
UTF-8 Czech/Czech Republic
aliasesarray in your new file. A typical alias entry is the ISO 639 two-letter language code without the ISO 3166 two-letter country code. The alias entry must be unique across language files.
Do not translate the JSON keys or phrase tags. An example using the ramp instruction:
Please translate the JSON values. As needed, reorder the phrase words and tags - the tags must remain in the phrase. An example using the ramp instruction:
make checkon the odin repo to verify the tests pass OR move on to the last step and we can help verify.
Submit a pull request for review. Thank you!
Ahoy, ye mateys! Alas, yer destination is up ahead! Every pirate knows two things: First, ye set sail on an adventure to seek yer treasure. Secondly, dead men tell no tales. At Mapzen, we know two things: First, we set sail on an adventure to provide a savvy open service. Secondly, it is wise mateys that tell their tales and contribute their native narrative language.
