Translations in CloudCode

The same translation files used in the application can be used in CloudCode, although the translation function itself is not provided currently.

Step 1: Add the js-yaml library

Use the instructions in CloudCode Dependencies to add the js-yaml library to the task:

yarn add js-yaml

Step 2: Read the file

const fs = require('fs');
const yaml = require('js-yaml');

export async function run() {
    const language = 'en_US';
    const doc = yaml.safeLoad(fs.readFileSync(`app/translations/${language}.yml`, 'utf8'));

The translation document can now be used inside the task.
