Filter by locale in Zotero Style Repository

Sebastian and I would like to see the ability to filter by locale in the
Zotero Style Repository (see ).
Now that the code for the repository is up at, I might even try coding it, if Dan
agrees to a specific solution.

With regard to the implementation, maybe we could have a dropdown menu with
the following options:

Style language:
“Any” (default)

Some thoughts:

  • I’m not completely sure what to do with styles without a default-locale
    attribute. We could either give them their own label (“International”/“No
    set language”?), or just group them with the English styles (we could
    modify the label in the latter case, e.g. “English/International”).
  • We could show the style count as part of the label, e.g. (“French (29)”).
    Anybody for or against?
  • We currently sometimes include a language description in the style title,
    e.g. “(German)” in
    This is a bit ugly, but is handy when searching for styles, and useful for
    distinguishing variants like “Chicago Manual of Style (author-date,
    German)” and Chicago Manual of Style (author-date)", so I’d like to keep it
    that way.
  • I think we should limit the amount of menu entries to prevent the menu
    from becoming too unwieldy. For many languages we only have a few styles
    anyway. The current count, for the independent styles:
