Hello! I know this list is supposed to be for MediaWiki. This more of a PHP
question, hope that's okay:
I am trying to add support for Hindu–Arabic numerals like ١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩٠ to my
application for the Kurdish language (ckb) . On my local install (Ubuntu
18.04), the numerals are visible for ckb and PHP properly shows them using
NumberFormatter. But in production (Debian Jessie 8.11), it's still showing
westernized Arabic like 1234567890 . Both installs are using the same
version of PHP (7.2.10), and the same version of ext-intl (1.1.0).
I don't think it's related to fonts, because the same Hindu-Arabic numerals
work when viewing in Arabic (ar) .
Can you think of any reason for this discrepancy? I thought it was all in
PHP, but maybe there's some other library that needs to be updated?
