Moon does not localize date/time strings

Reported by: walter Owned by: garycmartin
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Moon Version: Git as of bugdate
Severity: Unspecified Keywords:
Cc: Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


In the display of the various 'Next' string, locale is not taken into consideration when displaying ctime. Thus the day and month abbreviated names are in English, despite the locale setting.

We need to replace the called to ctime with a call strftime

locale.nl_langinfo(locale.D_T_FMT) returns the formatting information you need.

I've not quite figured out the proper syntax for putting it all together.

time.strftime(locale.nl_langinfo(locale.D_T_FMT),time.localtime(t)) seems to do the right thing, where t is the time in seconds currently being passed to time.ctime

Sorry, just go to your patch but pretty sure this (original ticket #191) is now fixed in git by:

Tested date translations for English, Spanish, and French.
