Contributing to lolita-i18n

  • Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet
  • Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it
  • Fork the project
  • Start a feature/bugfix branch
  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution
  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.

Registering URL's to understand from where translation comes

In your conifg/evironments/xxx.rb add this:

MyCool::Application.configure do config.middleware.use Lolita::I18n::Recorder end

After adding go manualy trough the whole site /urls. All translations will be registerd with linked url.

Export Redis DB to YAML file

rake lolita_i18n:export_redis -- --redisdb=1 --locale=lv --outfile=../lv.yml
