No way to specify country or language in currency locale

Issue #1219 new
mbouchar created an issue


This is a regression of the moneyfmt method that appeared in commit 601f1bc697f2. The new code does only currency formatting per currency type, but completely ignore the locale for numbers formatting or other specificities.

Take for example the CAD currency (Canadian dollars). When a user that is part of Quebec is viewing a product page in French, the currency formatting would be 25,00 $ while a user from other parts of Canada would see $25.00 (the same as USD).

I don't really know about all currencies possibilities, but the same thing is true with EUR. In France and Deutschland (Germany), the currency is 25,00 €, while in España (Spain), it is € 25,00.

    I created a small patch that add back the get_locale_conv method from satchmo 0.8.1 and use locale.currency when available. If the method is not available, the current fixed currency method is used instead. This will break satchmo tests on python >= 2.5 until a more complete fix is available.
