Locale aware currency formatter module for Processwire

TextformatterCurrency

A locale-aware currency formatter module for Processwire.

The module reads a conforming input money formatted string, splits it and formats each valid monetary amount according to the locale defined in the module settings. The module is capable of using the visiting browser's headers to determine which locale to use when formatting monetary amounts of various currencies.

Internally, the module uses PHPs Internationalization extension (intl) to do the formatting.

Input money format


The input money format is made up of any number of currency-amount pairs.

Each input money pair is made up of a currency code and an amount. These are always separated by at least one space with the code coming first. (eg. GBP 50.99 or JPY 100000.)

  • No thousands separators are allowed in the input.
  • A full-stop . character is the only acceptable decimal separator.

Each money pair is separated by a configurable character string ('|' by default.) You can change the character used to split the incoming string into currency-amount pairs in the module settings page.

Output format


Each currency-amount pair is formatted using the defined locale or that supplied by the browser and thus appears localised in the output of the formatter. If the input text has more than one currency-amount money pair then the output will join the localised outputs for each pair using the output glue string defined in the module settings.

Examples Using Module Defaults


Input GBP 50.99 | EUR 100 gives £50.99 + €100.00 when viewed in browser set to British English but gives 50,99 £GB + 100,00 € using a browser set to French.
