Ticket #1579 (new enhancement)
Research and implement i18n in planet
|Reported by:||ato||Owned by:||roh|
There has been some discussion that it would be useful to be able to view and subscribe to the planet such that you only see posts in languages you can read. I have looked into language classification a little and TextCat seems to do a decent job of at least splitting the english, german and french which three different languages at the moment. It supports classifying a wide variety of other languages too, but we haven't seen how it performs on them yet. I have an hourly updated example split feed.
Minh Ha Duong commented: 'Down-to-earth convenience also suggest that we need "I can read this language" checkboxes and cookies somewhere...'
I'm logging it here in case someone wants to have a go at it. Python source code to the example feed splitter is attached. It uses Thomas Magin's Python TextCat port.
Maybe if one of the Openmoko admins could post the Openmoko PlanetPlanet? configuration and template source used we could have a go at modifying them and send them back a patch?
