Language Files in own namespace?


I think this is more of a question for @Spuds or @emanuele‍, but is it possible to put the language files in their own namespace? The development branch of TinyPortal I have got most things into the TinyPortal namespace. I need to move the last of the article stuff from TPortalAdmin and TPArticle into the relevant files Article and ArticleAdmin then all I have remaining is the Portal.subs.php (I can just move this) and the language files. The JS, CSS and images folder I can move and change all the paths we set in TinyPortal so that again is easy enough. However I can't work out how to set a new language path like you can with the Themes like I do here;

I also couldn't work out how to manipulate the autoload to look in the TinyPortal namespace, so I added my own. It means the hooks show as not working (although they are) but everything else works as I would expect in the TinyPortal namespace and allows me to reference out to Elkarte where needed and when 2.0 is released update the references to it's namespace.

Sorry for the delay, been busy working on some PR's

I'm actually not sure about this, the autoloader in 1.1 is a bit strange since the file naming and directory structure were not PSR (2.0 is).
You should be able to place the files in a directory and add them to the loader as
Code: [Select]
$autoloader = Elk_Autoloader::instance();
$autoloder->register(YOURDIR, '\\YOURNAMESPACE');
but I'm just not sure with language files since I've never tried this.
