I'd like to share my observation:
I needed to share my javascript code between two files (it was form
validation for new and edit action + some more)
I created

and included it into my files with <%= javascript_include_tag
"users_edit.js" %>

It's important to use $pluginname as prefix to be unique in whole project!

That's it ...


And jsuchome pointed me to one ugly fact : strings are not translatable.
That's because .js file is not interpreted by rails (to apply
translation into <%= _("sometext") %>), it's just send as it is.
Any idea how to translate such string?


Reason is simple, you add javascript to public directory which is jsut
served. I already look at this issue (not-supported browser js has same
problem) and for me the best solution is to pass from view as parameter
translated string as I don't see how we can use dynamic generated js
elegant and clean.

Put string as a parameter? No, this makes code really ugly!
Just untested idea: what about rename file.js into file.js.rb (which is
interpreted and strings are replaced) - is it valid to include script
with .js.rb instead of .js?

It works if you place it at another place, because public is not executed. It
is just served.
But what do same work for you is partial. define your javascripts in partial
and render that partial. It do what you need. Also consider if more modules
could benefit from your javascripts. If so then place it in base and announce
it so we do not need to do same thing again.
