Globalize plugin question


#1

Hi,

I’d like to try and use the Globalize plugin, but I only need a subset
of the features that plugin provides. I’d like to:

  • translate text in views
  • format date/time/numbers using different locales

I won’t be using stuff like:

Locale.set(“en-US”)
prod = Product.find(1)
prod.name -> “Meatballs”

Locale.set(“es-ES”)
prod = Product.find(1)
prod.name -> “Albondigas”

Since I have no data in my models that requires translating, is there
any way I can turn off translating model data altogether? I’d rather not
have Globalize override Rails core classes for something I’m not using.

It not a huge deal, but It would be nice if this were possible.

Cheers,

Jeroen

Hi Jeroen,
Have you tried to comment out the following line in init.rb:
require “globalize/rails/active_record”

That should do the trick. (although I haven’t personally tested it)

HTH,
Tony
