Intl Delivery, a game about JavaScript’s internationalization API, has landed

Codepip is shipping Intl Delivery, a game for learning JavaScript’s internationalization API Intl.

You’ve just been hired to work the line for global retailer Alakazam. Your task is to intercept packages bound for countries all over the world and ensure their paperwork is properly translated for their destinations. As part of your training, you’ll learn to format dollar amounts for the US, decimals for Europe, dates and times for Asia, and much more.

When your onboarding is complete, you’ll be familiar with the powerful functions of JavaScript’s built-in internationalization API, Intl, including RelativeTimeFormat, NumberFormat, DateTimeFormat, ListFormat, and DisplayNames.

With Intl, no longer do you need to do string manipulation to convert numbers to currencies. Nor do you need to do array manipulation to convert arrays to lists. Installing bulky third-party libraries to format dates and times can be a thing of the past.

Let JavaScript do the heavy lifting for you. With just a few lines of code, localize all manner of numbers and text for any region or language in the world!
