language support could be a problem, but what I tested for my ddns-scripts-luci (not yet published)
you need three files from LuCI "system" files located inside ./build directory.
- i18n-scan.pl to scan .lua and .js files for strings that need to be translated (creating the .pot file).
- i18n-po2lmo.pl together with
- po2lmo (binary) to scan the po/[lang] directories for creation of the final [app].[lang].lmo files.
Both .pl files need some modifications to reflect the OpenWrt build structure.
This should not be a real show-stopper. If the .pot template exists, everybody can edit the .po file easily and publish it via git.
If a new .pot template is create due to code changes you can verify the .po against .pot and only need to update some translations.
The other option is to find a way to make the LuCI distribution system more "public" like OpenWrt "base" and "packages" system.
What I mean, if I push an update to OpenWrt, it takes max 24 hours until merged to trunk.
My offer of a patch that rebuild current luci-app-ddns is pending at luci at lists... since 21. Sep.
I also opened up a ticket at TRAC not knowing where it is "hanging around"
I wrote a fix to OpenWrt TRAC Ticket #18018 reported on 03.Oct. which fixes problems in current 14.07 RELEASE and trunk.
I resend on 04.Oct. - today is the 07.Oct. nothing happen.
But with direct access, 2 fixes were merged into LuCI trunk.
Sorry I'm German and there might be some "wrong words" inside my English.
I want to work together with all of you to find a way to support our users
and continue to build a more than brilliant system.
