ccHost currently is in need of standard Open Source translations. Victor Stone, a core developer on the project has created one way to for admins to edit strings and to solve this problem. Unfortunately, to complete the task and be compatible with 95% of the localization strategies in the world, ccHost is transitioning to use the common application, gettext.
The following steps outline the process of making ccHost gettextable:
- (DONE) develop test case for understanding how to plug into the project
- (DONE) comment out old cc-language.php classes and code temporarily
- (DONE) connect together the primary locale selection system in cc-language.php
- (DONE) connect up the event handing for all this locale stuff
- (DONE) add ability to create and manage PO files in PHP that is abstract enough to be used across different projects.
- (DONE) replace all cct() functions with gettext().
- (DONE) add UI for the selection of languages, similar to CC's
- (NOT DOING) Connect up admin string editor
- (DONE) make selectable locale system for users
- NOTE: The major parts of this code are now in the ccHost codebase, so please have fun!
Locale On-disk Hierarachy
/WEBROOT/ /locale /PROJECT_NAME (for setting up a ccmixter and cchost translatable .po file. /en_US /zh_CN
if (! dir_name ($locale) ) $locale = "locale/$PROJECTNNAME
$locale = 'locale';
Ok, the above task took more code than this in order to have fallback locale preferences.
Please come help us translate ccHost.
