Settings

django.conf.settings.STATICI18N_DOMAIN
Default:'djangojs'

The gettext domain to use when generating static files.

Can be overrided with the -d/--domain option of compilejsi18n command.

Usually you don’t want to do that, as JavaScript messages go to the djangojs domain. But this might be needed if you deliver your JavaScript source from Django templates.

django.conf.settings.STATICI18N_PACKAGES
Default:('django.conf')

A list of packages to check for translations.

Can be overrided with the -p/--package option of compilejsi18n command.

Each string in packages should be in Python dotted-package syntax (the same format as the strings in INSTALLED_APPS) and should refer to a package that contains a locale directory. If you specify multiple packages, all those catalogs are merged into one catalog. This is useful if you have JavaScript that uses strings from different applications.

django.conf.settings.STATICI18N_ROOT
Default:STATIC_ROOT

Controls the file path that catalog files will be written into.

django.conf.settings.STATICI18N_OUTPUT_DIR
Default:'jsi18n'

Controls the directory inside STATICI18N_ROOT that generated files will be written into.

django.conf.settings.STATICI18N_FILENAME_FUNCTION
Default:'statici18n.utils.default_filename'

The dotted path to the function that creates the filename.

The function receives two parameters:

  • locale: a string representation of the locale currently processed
  • domain: a string representation of the gettext domain used to check for translations

By default, the function returns the path '<language_code>/<domain>.js'.

The final filename is resulted by joining STATICI18N_ROOT, STATICI18N_OUTPUT_DIR and STATICI18N_FILENAME_FUNCTION.

For example, with default settings in place and STATIC_ROOT = 'static', the JavaScript catalog generated for the en_GB locale is: 'static/jsi18n/en-gb/djangojs.js'
