Thanks, i guess there are more in iOS 8. Please update if not so much trouble.

@farid-alexander You can use this snippet to build the list yourself.

let identifiers : NSArray = NSLocale.availableLocaleIdentifiers()
let locale = NSLocale(localeIdentifier: "en_US")
var list = NSMutableString()
for identifier in identifiers {
    let name = locale.displayNameForKey(NSLocaleIdentifier, value: identifier)!
    list.appendString("\(identifier)\t\(name)\n")
}

println(list)

There are a bit more now in iOS 9 beta 4 :-)

"We can make this file beautiful and searchable if this error is corrected: It looks like row 22 should actually have 1 column, instead of 2. "

Could this be fixed?

jasef commented May 24, 2016

I forked this and updated it for iOS 9.3, and corrected the formatting issue, so GitHub makes it searchable. Here's a new link: https://gist.github.com/jasef/337431c43c3addb2cbd5eb215b376179

Very helpful, thanks! Here's a Swift 3 version (along with playground code to generate):

https://gist.github.com/xta/6e9b63db1fa662bb3910b680f9ebd458

Thanks @jasef, I forked yours for react-native-i18n (they just use dashes instead of underscores.) Also I sorted it.
