Usage
Define the i18n keys you would like to use with polyglot and enjoy i18n in your JS files like Stimulus controllers and so on.

Gather a hash of phrases in your backend, and output them in a <script> tag at the bottom of the view:
<script>var polyglot = new Polyglot({phrases: #{raw phrases.to_json}});</script>

OR  define a helper
# app/helpers/application_helper.rb
def polyglot(phrases)
  "<script>var polyglot = new Polyglot({phrases: #{raw phrases.to_json}});</script>".html_safe
end

Call the helper at the bottom of the view and directly pass it the I18n keys you need in your JS files:
# app/views/**/*
= polyglot(I18n.t('javascript.greetings')


THEN enjoy i18n in your JS files:
# app/javascript/**/*
polyglot.t("hello")
