Inconsistent locale selection in admin and user settings

In the admin section, “default locale” selection combo-box shows names of languages such as “Deutsch” and “English”. However, if the “allow user locale” is enables, the “interface language” selection combo-box shows language values instead, such as “de” and “en”.

I think it would be fixed if preferences.hbs#L125 is changed from valueAttribute="value" to valueAttribute="name".

It looks like the issue is more deep rooted and requires further changes.

{{combo-box valueAttribute="value" content=availableLocales value=model.locale none="user.locale.default"}}

This populates data from the availableLocales which is defined like this:

availableLocales() {
  return this.siteSettings.available_locales.split('|').map(s => ({ name: s, value: s }));

Which is a pipe separated string of language values.

pry(main)> SiteSetting.available_locales
=> "ar|bs_BA|cs|da|de|en|es|et|fa_IR|fi|fr|gl|he|id|it|ja|ko|nb_NO|nl|pl_PL|pt|pt_BR|ro|ru|sk|sq|sv|te|tr_TR|uk|vi|zh_CN|zh_TW"

Because it is generated like this:

def self.available_locales{ |e| e[:value] }.join('|')

On the the names and values both were available, but only values were pushed in the client_settings.

pry(main)> LocaleSiteSetting.values
=> [{:name=>"اللغة العربية", :value=>"ar"},
 {:name=>"bosanski jezik", :value=>"bs_BA"},

I was able to dig down the PR by @joallard responsible for adding this feature.

Hi! Yep, sounds like an easy fix. We’d just have to send the full objects from upstream, and then display the labels properly.
