Multilingual Sites with Kotti.
Kotti's data model includes a
language attribute on the
from which all content types inherit. However, this attribute is neither
exposed by Kotti's UI, nor used in any other way.
provides a generic approach to build multilingual sites.
Work in Progress
kotti_multilingual is still in an early stage of development. It is
neither feature complete nor can be considered API stable. Things will change!
The package contains a single content type
LanguageRoot which is
supposed to be the container of all content in a specific language. All
content that is created in (or moved into) such a subtree will be automatically
tagged with the language of the root. This is done by subscribing to
You can place
LanguageRoot instances wherever you want in your content
tree, but it is considered best practice to have a tree structure like this:
- / Document language neutral - /en LanguageRoot English - /de LanguageRoot German - /nl LanguageRoot Dutch - /images Document language neutral
To activate the
kotti_multilingual add-on in your Kotti site, you need to
add an entry to the
kotti.configurators setting in your Paste Deploy config.
If you don't have a
kotti.configurators option, add one. The added entry
should look like this:
kotti.configurators = kotti_multilingual.kotti_configure
You can register an optional
kotti_multilingual.blacklist with the list of the
type names not handled by kotti_multilingual.
The test setup requires additional steps:
$ virtualenv --no-site-packages . $ source bin/activate $ pip install -r requirements.txt $ python setup.py develop $ python setup.py dev
