Localize Rails demo application

This demo application tries to show you how you can use the current Rails i18n features to localize your application. It uses current Edge Rails i18n functionality as well as the localized_date plugin (http://agilewebdevelopment.com/plugins/localized_dates). The tutorials on how to use the features shown in the app are part of the app itself instead of being shown in a separate blog article.

Setup

To set up the Localize Rails demo application you need the following steps:

  • git clone git://github.com/clemens/i18n_demo_app.git
  • cd i18n_demo_app
  • Run the migrations with rake db:migrate for ActiveRecordHelper
  • ruby ./script/server
  • Fire up your browser and go to http://localhost:3000 – the index page should be loaded automatically.

Contents

This demo app contains examples and tutorials on localizing the following parts of your application:

  • Date and Time Formats
  • DateHelper (forms)
  • NumberHelper
  • ActiveRecordHelper (incomplete at this point)

Adding Translations

It's easy to add a translation to this demo app, simply drop your locale file into the config/locales directory. As long as it follows the correct format (see config/locales/en-US.rb) it should all work fine.
