next-export-i18n v2: updated to react v18 and next v12

The version 2.0.x of next-export-i18n, the i18n module for Next.js which is fully compatible with next export, supports react v18 and next v12.


Install next-export-i18n with $ npm i next-export-i18n or get next-export-i18n v1.3.0 from npm.js.


About next-export-i18n

This npm module provides a simple solution for Internationalization (i18n) of projects using next export.

Next.js already has support for internationalized (i18n) routing out-of-the-box. You can provide a list of locales, a default as well as domain-specific locales and Next.js automatically handles the routing. It streamlines the touring and locale parsing for nearly all existing l18n library solutions available for Next.js such as react-intl, react-i18next, lingui, rosetta, next-intl.

Unfortunately, Next.js i18n-routing does not supports next export.
This means that none of the i18n-libraries (which are utilizing the build in i18n-routing) is able to support fully static sites which are generated with next export.

next-export-i18n provides a simple solution for Internationalization (i18n) when you want to generate a truly static website with next export.

Read the Introduction to next-export-i18n - next.js: i18n with static sites for more details.
