Module: Authlogic::I18n

Defined in:
lib/authlogic/i18n.rb,
lib/authlogic/i18n/translator.rb

Overview

This class allows any message in Authlogic to use internationalization. In earlier versions of Authlogic each message was translated via configuration. This cluttered up the configuration and cluttered up Authlogic. So all translation has been extracted out into this class. Now all messages pass through this class, making it much easier to implement in I18n library / plugin you want. Use this as a layer that sits between Authlogic and whatever I18n library you want to use.

By default this uses the rails I18n library, if it exists. If it doesnt exist it just returns the default english message. The Authlogic I18n class works EXACTLY like the rails I18n class. This is because the arguments are delegated to this class.

Here is how all messages are translated internally with Authlogic:

Authlogic::I18n.t('error_messages.password_invalid', :default => "is invalid")

If you use a different I18n library just replace the build-in I18n::Translator class with your own. For example:

class MyAuthlogicI18nTranslator
  def translate(key, options = {})
    # you will have key which will be something like: "error_messages.password_invalid"
    # you will also have options[:default], which will be the default english version of the message
    # do whatever you want here with the arguments passed to you.
  end
end

Authlogic::I18n.translator = MyAuthlogicI18nTranslator.new

That it's! Here is a complete list of the keys that are passed. Just define these however you wish:

authlogic:
  error_messages:
    login_blank: can not be blank
    login_not_found: is not valid
    login_invalid: should use only letters, numbers, spaces, and .-_@ please.
    consecutive_failed_logins_limit_exceeded: Consecutive failed logins limit exceeded, account is disabled.
    email_invalid: should look like an email address.
    password_blank: can not be blank
    password_invalid: is not valid
    not_active: Your account is not active
    not_confirmed: Your account is not confirmed
    not_approved: Your account is not approved
    no_authentication_details: You did not provide any details for authentication.
    general_credentials_error: Login/Password combination is not valid
  models:
    user_session: UserSession (or whatever name you are using)
  attributes:
    user_session: (or whatever name you are using)
      login: login
      email: email
      password: password
      remember_me: remember me
