Developing for Splunk Enterprise

How to translate an app that uses the web framework / Django?

Following these instructions I have successfully translated a Splunk app built using advanced XML. However, the process does not seem to work with an app built with the web framework (Django). Running the extraction command gives me this:

splunk.exe extract i18n -app <appname>

[...]
extracting messages from C:\Program Files\Splunk\etc\apps\<appname>\django\<appname>\templates\<templatename>.html (input_encoding="utf-8")
Failed cli cmd extract

For what it's worth, the template is encoded as ANSI/Windows.

Above command creates a file locale\messages.pot with a size of 0 bytes.

My question is: should I follow the steps outlined in the Django docs or does Splunk have someting else?

This answer describes a potential solution. I have not tried it myself, though.

Hi,

Have you been able to translate your django views with success ?

I am currently trying to do so, i have no complains from the i18n extract command, but there are no patterns related to my django views in the .po files, so no translation of these views as for now...

Couldn't find any django specific tanslating doc...

Thanks

Guilhem
