I have an application that depends on a table/model
(ModelInternationalization) that provides international translations in
various languages for all the model/table and columns names as well as
some other stuff (whether the column is visible on forms, dropdowns,
lists, reports etc).
I need to create a management interface for this translation stuff (the
plaintext stuff, btw, will be handled by GetText). To do this, I need to
loop through all the models in the application and check if they are
present for the currently selected language in the translation model.
Maybe some pseudocode would help clarify
for m in Application models
<%= h m.model.name %>
Essentially, this would loop through all the models available to the
application and just display it’s name. Ofcourse, the actually code is
much more complex.
Is there a collection of the available models somewhere? Or do I need to
goof it up and just parse the directory listing of the app/models
directory? Or worse, create a table with just the names of the models
and loop through that?
