Description (last modified by dustin)

The Web UI should be localized. AngularJS ecosystem has ngTranslate project, which makes i18n relatively easy.


This project would require

  • Learning about AngularJS and ngTranslate and how they are applied to an application
  • Applying ngTranslate to the Buildbot JS source code
  • Documenting how to correctly use ngTranslate in new code
  • Documenting the process for adding or updating a localization
  • Testing translation

Please note that the I18n project is slightly light in term of difficulty, you might have more chance to be selected if you'd choose a slightly more difficult subject.

Alternatively, a project like that may be a great chance to do a *really* thorough job. Buildbot has had a number of projects (not just in GSoC) that were only barely finished, and that leaves a lot of work for the maintainers to fix the bugs, add the missing bits, updatethe docs, and so on.

Ponder this: what is the difference between just "finishing" the i18n project and making sure that Buildbot users and translators have a really great experience?
