Localizing Date, DateTime and Time

Reported by iain | August 10th, 2008 @ 12:04 AM

Instead of doing I18n.localize(time) it would be nice to alter Date(Time) to use its to_s function.

Proposed syntax:

  t = Time.now
  t.to_s(:long) # returnes localized version, if available

    Hi Iain,

    I agree it would be nicer :)

    But I also think we should do this in a plugin for now. It certainly makes a good candidate for the second iteration of our "I18nize-Rails- dev-cycle" and it certainly seems like a small thing to add, but there seem to be so many small things to understand I feel that we should get together working solutions for Date/Time/Whatever formats before we add another API.

    IIRC there's been another ticket like this on Rails' Lighthouse which was rejected (or defered) with the same reasoning.
