Simple demonstration of using proper I18n with ActiveAdmin and Globalize3 support
Ruby JavaScript CoffeeScript
Branch: master


Simple Rails 3.1 I18n Demonstration app

Originally created as a small exercise on the usage of the different components necessary to properly support internationalization (i18n) and localization (l10n) on top of Rails 3.2.

This includes taking care of:

  1. Devise, by adding locale files

  2. Rails Translate Routes to have translated URLs

  3. Globalize3 to make model attributes also locale sensitive

  4. ActiveAdmin with Globalize3 support, to edit each localized attribute

Optional components added include:

  1. RDiscount to simulate a minimal CMS

  2. FriendlyID to exercise proper ID generation for content

  3. Twitter Bootstrap to make the visual a bit more appealing
