Yii 1.1: Entire Messages into javascript object


I needed all messages with their translation into javascript. This is my solution:

1- Extend CPhpMessageSource, creating MPhpMessageSource into protected/components :

class MPhpMessageSource extends CPhpMessageSource
    public function init()
    public function getLoadedMessages($category = 'core') 
        return $this->loadMessages($category, Yii::app()->language);

2- You add this to protected/config/main.php into components array:

'messages' => array(
            'class' => 'APhpMessageSource'

3- You add this code into your view:

<script type="text/javascript">
    var messages = <?php echo CJSON::encode(Yii::app()->messages->getLoadedMessages()) ?>;
        function t(key) {
            return (messages[key]) ? messages[key] : key;
