Extensions provide a convenient mechanism for Spree developers to share reusable code with one another. Even if you do not plan on sharing your extensions with the community, they can still be a useful way to reuse code within your organization. Extensions are also a convenient mechanism for organizing and isolating discrete chunks of functionality.
We are going to be adding the spree_i18n extension to our store. SpreeI18n is a extension containing community contributed translations of Spree & ability to supply different attribute values per language such as product names and descriptions. Extensions can also add models, controllers, and views to create new functionality.
There are three steps we need to take to install spree_i18n.
First, we need to add the gem to the bottom of our
gem 'spree_i18n', github: 'spree-contrib/spree_i18n', branch: 'master'
Now, let’s install the gem via Bundler with the following command:
Finally, let’s copy over the required migrations and assets from the extension with the following command:
bundle exec rails g spree_i18n:install
Answer yes when prompted to run migrations.
Spree Contrib GitHub Organization is a collection of officially supported extensions. You can also find others on GitHub.
