Views w locale default template

[RAILS3]

I hesitate on how handling the locale view templates to default to
one language only …

sending admin emails will go only to one locale ‘en_GB’

should I set it up into the template name and set I18n.locale to
‘en_GB’

membership_renew.en_GB.html.erb

OR

whatever locale is used , if I have :

membership_renew.html

it will be the default ?

Hi, at least I didn’t completely get your problem.
The way I set a default locale is:

config.i18n.fallbacks = true
config.i18n.default_locale = :en

In application.rb

I have 3 languages and if one translation is not found it falls back to
english.

But again, I maybe didn’t get your goal.

Cheers.

Huh? That doesn’t sound correct to me. Specifying the locale in the
template filename seems very odd. Can you point me at documentation on
where this would required?

I agree , not very clear … I was referring to mailer template
views
I tested many cases and it seems I need to define .en_GB views
( including the locale)

I am using already the fallback…
config.i18n.fallbacks = true
config.i18n.default_locale = :en_EN

but I am concerned by mailer ? which seems to handle locale
differently. Here is a case :

I am logged in as current_user
I select :en_ES as locale for display
I visit the site …
and I some point the system need to send a message to the site
admin…

as mailer views I MUST have templates like : welcome.en_GB.html.erb
and NOT welcome.html.erb

Thanks Walter,

I was using a trick :

class ActionMailer::Localized < ActionMailer::Base
private

we override the template_path to render localized templates (since

rails does not support that :frowning: )

This thing is not testable since you cannot access the instance of

a mailer…
def initialize_defaults(method_name)
super
@template = “#{method_name}.#{I18n.locale}”
end
end

seems to be a very bad idea… I’m moving to another folder
structure,

views

user_mailer
en_GB
membership_renew.html.erb
membership_renew.text.erb
es_ES
membership_renew.html.erb
membership_renew.text.erb

so I need the template path to be:
@template = “#{ActionMailer::Base::template_root}/user_mailer/
{user.language || ‘en_GB’}.erb”

where should I write it ? directly in the mailer method ?..
will it handle the formats : html/text ?

def membership_renew(user, membership, clip)

==> @template = “#{ActionMailer::Base::template_root}/user_mailer/
{user.language || ‘en_GB’}/membership_renew.erb”
mail(:to => user.email, :subject => “Your Swing Analysis Request”)
do |format|
format.html { render :layout => “/mailer/sbga_user_mail” }
format.text
end
end

just tried … doesn’t work … @template is bypassed

ActionView::MissingTemplate: Missing template user_mailer/
membership_renew with
{:handlers=>[:erb, :rjs, :builder, :rhtml, :rxml, :haml],
:formats=>[:html], :locale=>[:en_GB]}
in view paths “/Users/yves/Sites/rails/testsbga/app/views”

it should be looking for : template user_mailer/en_GB/
membership_renew …with {:handlers=>[:erb

the @template path seems to be build before the call to the mailer
action …
