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.
To set up the Localize Rails demo application you need the following steps:
git clone git://github.com/clemens/i18n_demo_app.git
- Run the migrations with
rake db:migratefor ActiveRecordHelper
- Fire up your browser and go to
http://localhost:3000– the index page should be loaded automatically.
This demo app contains examples and tutorials on localizing the following parts of your application:
- Date and Time Formats
- DateHelper (forms)
- ActiveRecordHelper (incomplete at this point)
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.
