I am developing a library that contains translations. Users of this library can define a gettext backend in the
config.exs script used by my library. Gettext provides functions that take a backend as a parameter. I want to use these functions to translate text in my library, but the translations are not extracted by the
mix gettext.extract task.
Suppose I have a module
use Gettext in it:
If I have this function in my code, everything works as expected and the translations are extracted when the mix task runs:
However, when I pass the backend as a parameter, the translation is not extracted:
Gettext.dgettext(DemoWeb.Gettext, "domain", "translation")
Is this because in this function, which accepts a dynamic backend, gettext does not know which backend is used at compile time, because it could be dynamic, and therefore cannot extract the translations?
Is there a better way to integrate gettext into a library or automatically extract translations with a backend defined in the
Thanks in advance. I appreciate any help!
