    WordPress: How to localize your JavaScript code?

    Update (on 17th July 2017) – see the bottom of the page. In WordPress, while writing theme or plugin, you should always keep in mind localization.

Please remember three things. One – I used next friday as an interval. If you use last friday you’ll get your iterator iterating downwards, so you may end in the year of -9999 🙂 Two – $item is DateTime object, you may do whatever you want as it’s normal object Three…
