Sidekiq dashboard customised for urdu language

Recently Mike Perham creator of SideKiq gem tweeted about support of Arabic and Farsi language in Sidekiq dashboard and call for Urdu language support.

I being a native Urdu speaker and open source enthusiast rushed to open a Pull Request for Urdu language support .  Now you can have SideKiq dashboard in Urdu language as well. All you need to do is add following lines in your config/initializers/sidekiq.rb file

require 'sidekiq/web'

module Sidekiq
  module WebHelpers
    def locale
      'ur'
    end
  end
end

Now your Sidekiq dashboard will look like thisSidekiq Urdu GUI

Happy Background Processing  😎
