Hi,

Does anybody tried to override path_names on Rails 3.1? I've tried
with no luck (global/local).

For i.e. a part of my de.yml:

de:
path_names:
new: "neu"
edit: "edieren"
routes:
categories:
as: 'kategorien'

When app starts I see nothing about path_names in the log but see some
stuff like:

[I18n] > localize resources : categories
(de) => /kategorien

Thanks for any help!

What's your route.rb files?

Hi

Your configuration is wrong. Below you have part of my config which works with Rails 3.1. Don't know about the global change for all controllers but this config works on per controller basis.

pl:
  routes:
    products:
      as: "produkty"
      path_names:
        new: "nowy"
        in_category: "w_kategorii"

Here is my routes.rb:
http://pastie.org/private/9xwzwgqpj5cjgv5fopjydq

@Paweł Barcik
I've tried your configuration too it doesn't work for me and it will
be a pain to copy paste that stuff for all the controllers.
Thanks anyway.

@Mikhail, I don't exactly where the problem in your code, but this
works for me in Rails 3.1.0:

# config/routes.rb
MyApp::Application.routes.draw do
localized(["es"]) do
resources :pages
end
end

# config/locales/es.yml
es:
resources:
pages: paginas

path_names:
new: nuevo

routes:
pages:
path_names:
new: nueva

And now http://localhost:3000/paginas/nueva serves
PagesController#new. Note that the specific "path_names" is used over
the global. Hope this helps.

I found another problem. In my routes I have a global :root and :root
in namespace :admin.
In the result my global :root is overridden by namespaced one.

Hello Mikhail, you might fix this by not translating admin routes.
It's probably useless right ?

Same issue here. Not only path names but also other route translations
are not found. I tried all combinations suggested on this page. Under
which keys do I need to put simple named routes in Rails 3.1? A
reference about where to put which translations would be really
useful. I'm puzzled why its not in the wiki. Shall we guess
translation keys? ;-) Or have I overlooked something.

Best Regards,
Nico

It does not really even know what to try.
Know any other gem?

And make sure your I18n.available_locales is set.

Hi Guillaume,

thanks for the link. I tried the following from the examples here:
http://www.tricksonrails.com/2010/05/i18n_routing-translate-your-rails2-rails3-routes-with-ease/comment-page-1/#comment-184

fr-CH:
resource:
video_albums: video_albums-fr-CH
named_routes_path:
advertise: advertise-fr-CH
routes:
users:
as: users-fr-CH
path_names:
new: new-fr-CH


ruby-1.9.2-p290 > I18n.locale = :'fr-CH'
=> :"fr-CH"
ruby-1.9.2-p290 > app.users_path
=> "/users-fr-CH"
ruby-1.9.2-p290 > app.video_albums_path
=> "/video_albums"
ruby-1.9.2-p290 > app.advertise_path
=> "/advertise"
ruby-1.9.2-p290 > app.new_user_path
=> "/users-fr-CH/new"
ruby-1.9.2-p290 >

Available locales is set, actually I supply explicit locales in the
localized call.

Nico

So basically only the

routes:
users:
as: users-fr-CH

works. I'm also wondering what the difference is between

resources:
users: users-fr-CH

and the above. Seem equivalent to me.

Actually I forgot the plural "s" in the resources key in my previous
post, but even when I add it the translation is not found.

Hmm, right now, I have no idea, (sorry long time I haven't use the gem) but this notation should be the most usable one.
You can't do named path with it ?

Spending hours now figuring this out. It seems the gem is not really
functional beyond basic routes in rails 3.1.1

I managed now to get the named routes lookup working like this:

fr-CH:

routes:
advertise:
as: advertise-fr-CH

ruby-1.9.2-p290 > app.advertise_path
=> "/advertise-fr-CH"

However, I don't see any documentation for this. I had to look into
the source code, which isn't easy to read.

When adding a nested route to the user routes like this:

localized([:'de-CH', :'fr-CH'], :verbose => true) do
resources :users do
resources :videos
end
end

with

fr-CH:
routes:
users:
as: users-fr-CH
path_names:
new: new-fr-CH

path_names.new is wrongly recognized as belonging to videos and the
new path segment for new_user_path is not translated.

To fix this I can work around that by removing the nested resource and
adding an extra block:

resources :users do
localized([:'de-CH', :'fr-CH'], :verbose => true) do
resources :videos
end
end

However, this is not very clean and I also don't know where to store
the translations for the nested videos resource.

Is that gem actually maintained? Would be a pitty if not, as it is one
of the very few options for translating routes in rails.
