Using i18next with Framework7 with vite

Is there a solution to this problem?

How can I refere to json translation files?
(Framework7 with vite)

backend: {
   loadPath: '/locales/{{lng}}-{{ns}}.json'
    // /locales/en-US-translation.json

So this /locales/ folder. I placed it in ./src/ does not work then in ./public/ also does not work.

loadPath …/locales/ does also not work

loadPath ./locales/ does also not work

This vite .js file (including your custom app.js ) gets placed within the ./assets folder.

How can I reference a file OUTSIDE this vite thing from within the ./assets/index.23412342134.js ?
