Lino learns Portuguese (continued)¶
Added a project
and a tested docs page Code snippets for testing Lino's i18n.
Found the explanation why Django doesn’t find the pt-br locales: because Lino had no pt locale.
In Django you cannot have a variant of a language without having the base language. The advantage of this sophistication is that pt-br automatically inherits from pt.
Flavio, what’s the difference between Brazilian Portuguese and plain Portuguese? Are you able to maintain both locales?
The Code snippets for testing Lino's i18n page was still failing
uses python -m doctest
which doesn’t let us specify an input encoding for
It was a well-known bug that
didn’t yet support non-ascii characters.
Now it does.
Had to add a new module
Because we need to run each doctest in a separate subprocess
and because the command-line interface
of python -m doctest has no way to specify an encoding
of the input file.
Checked in revision f4205eee7d76 for Flavio to test.
