react-gettext-parser

npm version Build Status

A gettext utility that extracts translatable strings from JavaScript, JSX and TypeScript and puts them into a .pot file. It uses the babylon AST parser.

It can be used directly in JavaScript, in gulp, via babel or as a standalone CLI utility to be used in the terminal or from npm scripts.

Features

  • Extracts translatable strings from JavaScript, JSX and TypeScript
  • Correctly handles string concatenation, e.g. gettext('Foo ' + 'Bar') (useful for wrapping into multiple lines)
  • Maps component names and properties to gettext variables (configurable)
  • Maps function names and arguments to gettext variables (configurable)
  • Merges identical strings found in separate files and concatenates their references
  • Writes .pot content to a specified output file
  • Supports globs

Usage

Using the CLI

Providing a config, using a single glob string:

react-gettext-parser --config path/to/config.js --output messages.pot 'src/**/{*.js,*.jsx,*.ts,*.tsx}'

Using an array of glob strings, which is passed to glob-all:

react-gettext-parser --output messages.pot 'src/*.js' '!src/test.js'

The entire help section for ya:

react-gettext-parser <options> glob [, glob, ...]

Options:
  -h, --help       Show help                                          [boolean]
  -o, --output     Path to output .pot file
  -c, --config     Path to a react-gettext-parser config file
  --trim           Trims extracted strings from surrounding whitespace[boolean]
  --trim-lines     Trims each line in extracted strings from surrounding
                   whitespace                                         [boolean]
  --trim-newlines  Trims extracted strings from new-lines             [boolean]

Using the API

// Script somewhere

import { parseGlob } from 'react-gettext-parser';

// Parse a file and put it into a pot file
parseGlob(['src/**/{*.js,*.jsx}'], { output: 'messages.pot' }, () => {
  // Done!
});

// You can also get extracted strings as a list of message objects
import { extractMessagesFromGlob } from 'react-gettext-parser';
const messages = extractMessagesFromGlob(['src/**/{*.js,*.jsx}']);

/*
Results in something like:

[
  {
    msgctxt: "",
    msgid: "Translate me"
    msgstr: [""],
    comments: {
      extracted: ["A comment to translators"],
      reference: [{
        filename:"MyComponent.jsx",
        line:13,
        column:1
      }]
    }
  },
  // And so on...
]
*/

Via babel-plugin-react-gettext-parser

babel --plugins react-gettext-parser src
// .babelrc
{
  "presets": ["es2015", "react"],
  "plugins": [
    ["react-gettext-parser", {
      // Options
    }]
  ]
}

In an npm script

{
  "scripts": {
    "build:pot": "react-gettext-parser --config path/to/config.js --output messages.pot 'src/**/*.js*'"
  }
}

As a gulp task

var reactGettextParser = require('react-gettext-parser').gulp;

gulp.task('build:pot', function() {
  return gulp.src('src/**/*.js*')
    .pipe(reactGettextParser({
      output: 'messages.pot',
      // ...more options
    }))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('translations'));
});

API

Extracting strings

extractMessages(codeStr, [options])

Parses a string with JS(X) or Typescript source code for translatable strings and returns a list of message objects. When use with typescript source code, specify option sourceType as TYPESCRIPT

extractMessagesFromFile(filePath, [options])

Parses a JS(X) or Typescript file for translatable strings and returns a list of message objects.

extractMessagesFromGlob(globStr, [options])

Parses JS(X) or Typescript files matching a glob for translatable strings and returns a list of message objects.

parse(code, [options], [callback])

Parses a string with JS(X) source code for translatable strings and writes a .pot file containing those strings. When use with typescript source code, specify option sourceType as TYPESCRIPT

parseFile(filePath, [options], [callback])

Parses a JS(X) file for translatable strings and writes a .pot file containing those strings.

parseGlob(globStr, [options], [callback])

Parses JS(X) files matching a glob for translatable strings and writes a .pot file containing those strings.

Converting messages to a POT string

toPot(messages)

Writing POT contents to file

Converts an array of message objects into a POT string.

outputPot(filePath, contents, [callback])

Writes contents to filePath if filePath is truthy, i.e. a string. If filePath is falsy, contents is logged to the console.

Options

output

The destination path for the .pot file. If omitted, the .pot output will be logged to the console.

componentPropsMap

A two-level object of prop-to-gettext mappings.

The defaults are:

{
  GetText: {
    message: 'msgid',
    messagePlural: 'msgid_plural',
    context: 'msgctxt',
    comment: 'comment',
  }
}

The above would make this component...

// MyComponent.jsx
<GetText
  message="One item"
  messagePlural="{{ count }} items"
  count={numItems}
  context="Cart"
  comment="The number of items added to the cart"
/>

...would result in the following translation block:

# The number of items added to the cart
#: MyComponent.jsx:2
msgctxt "Cart"
msgid "One item"
msgid_plural "{{ count }} items"
msgstr[0] ""
msgstr[1] ""
funcArgumentsMap

An object of function names and corresponding arrays of strings that matches arguments against gettext variables.

Defaults:

{
  gettext: ['msgid'],
  dgettext: [null, 'msgid'],
  ngettext: ['msgid', 'msgid_plural'],
  dngettext: [null, 'msgid', 'msgid_plural'],
  pgettext: ['msgctxt', 'msgid'],
  dpgettext: [null, 'msgctxt', 'msgid'],
  npgettext: ['msgctxt', 'msgid', 'msgid_plural'],
  dnpgettext: [null, 'msgid', 'msgid_plural'],
}

This configs means that this...

// Menu.jsx
<Link to="/inboxes">
  { npgettext('Menu', 'Inbox', 'Inboxes') }
</Link>

...would result in the following translation block:

#: Menu.jsx:13
msgctxt "Menu"
msgid "Inbox"
msgid_plural "Inboxes"
msgstr[0] ""
msgstr[1] ""
trim (--trim)

Trims extracted strings from surrounding whitespace.

Default: false

trimLines (--trim-lines)

Trims each line in extracted strings from surrounding whitespace.

Default: false

trimNewlines (--trim-newlines)

Trims extracted strings from new-lines.

Default: false
