Multilingual fields for CKAN

Project description


This extension provides a way to store and return multilingul
fields in CKAN datasets, resources, organizations and groups.

Add the `fluent` plugin to your ckan.plugins configuration
settings and use ckanext-scheming or a custom form plugin to
use the provided validators to store multilingual text in
extra fields.

The easiest way to use fluent multilingual text fields is with
Add `ckanext.fluent:presets.json` to your scheming.presets
configuration settings:

scheming.presets = ckanext.scheming:presets.json

A fluent multilingual field in a scheming schema
will look something like::

"field_name": "books",
"preset": "fluent_text",
"label": {
"en": "Books",
"fr": "Livres"
"form_languages": ["en", "fr"]

This new extra field "books" will appear as multiple fields in the
dataset form, one for each language specified in `form_languages`
by the [form snippet](ckanext/fluent/templates/scheming/form_snippets/fluent_text.html).

![Example of fluent form snippet](docs/multilingual-form.png)

When displayed, each language with text entered will appear separately
by the
[display snippet](ckanext/fluent/templates/scheming/display_snippets/fluent_text.html), eg.:

![Example of fluent display snippet](docs/multilingual-display.png)

When the dataset is accessed from the API the language values appear
and are updated as an object, eg.:

"...": "...",
"books": {
"en": "Franklin",
"fr": "Benjamin"
"...": "..."
