I have an umbrella application with two web apps, one for admin and one for users (
FooWeb). There’s also an app that handles assets for both web applications (
FooCommon). This works well, but since both apps share styles, I want to use a shared
CoreComponents module for both apps, allowing me to create forms etc. using one module. The problem is, that both web apps have their own
Gettext modules, and the
FooCommon app does not have Gettext, meaning that
FooCommon.CoreComponents has no access to
Gettext, thus I can’t have translated errors.
I tried moving
Gettext only to
FooCommon, but having it like this causes it to not find
gettext calls from the web apps, so running
mix gettext.extract --merge will result in 0 lines.
I also thought about passing the translation module (
FooShared.CoreComponents as they do in PETAL, but I have no idea how it would decide which module to use.
So, is there a way to tell
FooCommon to look for gettext calls in both web apps? Or, is there a way to make
FooCommon.CoreComponents understand which web app the call is originating from? Or should I do something completely different?
