Khown Issues

  • After translating a msgid you have to restart your application
  • At now this package use pyramid_layout default layout. form pyramid_layout documentation page main_template is the template object that provides the main template (aka, o-wrap) for the view. if your application don’t have main_layout some default main_template will be used but it is so simple and you may have problem. at now templates will be load in block named content.
  • main_layout template have to designed via jinja2.
  • excuse me for my bad english knowledge.
