Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-934) i18n language override menu
Date Wed, 20 Sep 2006 14:00:22 GMT
    [ ] 
Thorsten Scherler commented on FOR-934:

I had a quick look at the patch and it would make a good plugin.

Since the dispatcher contract is only a small part of the overall code and the code is not
limited to the dispatcher it makes sense to create a plugin out of it.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Forrest
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Dispatcher (aka views), Internationalisation (i18n)
>    Affects Versions: 0.8-dev

> Attached is a dispatcher contract with support files. It will return a list of alternative
languages available for a given document. The list is of the form:
> <!--+ |start language list +-->
> <span>
> <a href="?locale=en">en</a>
> </span>
> <span>
> <a href="?locale=fi">fi</a>
> </span>
> <span>
> <a href="?locale=nb">nb</a>
> </span>
> <span class="selected">se</span>
> <span>
> <a href="?locale=smj">smj</a>
> </span>
> <!--+ |end language list +-->
> It handles filenames following this scheme (convention is already established for Forrest):
> document.XY.extension (XY = locale/language of document)
> document.extension (fallback document)
> If there is a fallback document, the contract will try to look inside the document to
see if it can find an @xml:lang or @lang attribute to associate a language with the fallback
> The contract returns a list of available languages, including the one being displayed.
The displayed language is marked with @class="selected" in the output html.
> If there is only one document available (=no alternating languages), the contract only
returns three comments (start, end, and a comment stating that there's no alternative).
