View Full Version : Ext.apply('Ext.Loader', {...}) with minified files.

16 May 2014, 5:09 PM
We are implementing localization, and it works fine until I use sencha cmd to minify the app code.

Before implementing minification, we included ExtJS, localization file, and our code in this order:

<script src="ext-dev.js"></script>
<script src="localization.js"></script>
<script src="app.js"></script>

localization.js has something like this:

Ext.apply(Ext.Loader, {

locale: {
enabled: false,
language: null,
path: 'localization',
localizedByDefault: false,
extLocalePath: false,
i18nServer: false,
types: []

setLocale: function (config) {
Ext.apply(this.locale, config);

It does other things, but the point is that is uses Ext.apply() to add config and functions to Ext.Loader.

The problem is that minification introduces a chicken and egg situation. Because sencha cmd creates one js file app.js that contains the ExtJS code and my app code, minified, I can't have a script tag with localization.js before the script tag for app.js, because Ext is not defined yet.

On the other hand, I can't have localization.js in a script tag after the script tag for the minified app.js, because I am using the Class register preprocessor so the localization is applied when each of my app classes is loaded by Ext.Loader.

Anyone can help with this it would be greatly appreciated.
