1. Installation

  • Choose your version according to the version compatibility matrix:
Laravel Package
4.2.x 2.0.x
5.0.x 2.1.x
5.1.x 2.2.x
5.2.x 2.3.x
  • Add the following line in the require-dev array of the composer.json file and replace the version if needed according to your Laravel version:

    "potsky/laravel-localization-helpers" : "2.3.*"
  • Update your installation : composer update

  • Add the following line in the providers array of the config/app.php configuration file :

    'Potsky\LaravelLocalizationHelpers\LaravelLocalizationHelpersServiceProvider'
  • Now execute php artisan list and you should view the new localization commands:

    ...
    localization
    localization:clear          Remove lang backup files
    localization:find           Display all files where the argument is used as a lemma
    localization:missing        Parse all translations in app directory and build all lang files
    ...
    

You can add the facade in the Aliases if you need to manage translations in your code :

'LocalizationHelpers' => 'Potsky\LaravelLocalizationHelpers\Facade\LocalizationHelpers'

2. Configuration

To configure your fresh installed package, please create a configuration file by executing :

php artisan vendor:publish

Then you can modify the configuration in file :

app/config/laravel-localization-helpers.php

Add new folders to search for, add your own lang methods or functions, ...

Backup files

You should not include backup lang files in GIT or other versioning systems.

In your laravel folder, add this in .gitignore file :

# Do not include backup lang files
app/lang/*/[a-zA-Z]*20[0-9][0-9][0-1][0-9][0-3][0-9]_[0-2][0-9][0-5][0-9][0-5][0-9].php

3. Usage

3.1 Command localization:missing

This command parses all your code and generates translations according to lang files in all lang/XXX/ directories.

Use php artisan help localization:missing for more informations about options.

Examples Generate all lang files
php artisan localization:missing
Generate all lang files without prompt
php artisan localization:missing -n
Generate all lang files without backuping old files
php artisan localization:missing -b
Generate all lang files with automatic translations
php artisan localization:missing -t

You need to set your Microsoft Bing Translator credentials More informations here : https://github.com/potsky/microsoft-translator-php-sdk#user-content-2-configuration

Generate all lang files without keeping obsolete lemmas
php artisan localization:missing -o
Generate all lang files without any comment for new found lemmas
php artisan localization:missing -c
Generate all lang files without header comment
php artisan localization:missing -d
Generate all lang files and set new lemma values

3 commands below produce the same output:

php artisan localization:missing
php artisan localization:missing -l
php artisan localization:missing -l "TODO: %LEMMA"

You can customize the default generated values for unknown lemmas.

The following command let new values empty:

php artisan localization:missing -l ""

The following command prefixes all lemma values with "Please translate this : "

php artisan localization:missing -l "Please translate this : %LEMMA"

The following command set all lemma values to "Please translate this !"

php artisan localization:missing -l 'Please translate this !'
Silent option for shell integration
#!/bin/bash

php artisan localization:missing -s
if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
echo "Nothing to do dude, GO for release"
else
echo "I will not release in production, lang files are not clean"
fi
Simulate all operations (do not write anything) with a dry run
php artisan localization:missing -r
Open all must-edit files at the end of the process
php artisan localization:missing -e

You can edit the editor path in your configuration file. By default, editor is Sublime Text on Mac OS X :

'editor_command_line' => '/Applications/Sublime\\ Text.app/Contents/SharedSupport/bin/subl'

For PHPStorm on Mac OS X:

'editor_command_line' => '/usr/local/bin/phpstorm'

3.2 Command localization:find

This command will search in all your code for the argument as a lemma.

Use php artisan help localization:find for more informations about options.

Examples Find regular lemma
php artisan localization:find Search
Find regular lemma with verbose
php artisan localization:find -v Search
Find regular lemma with short path displayed
php artisan localization:find -s "Search me"
Find lemma with a regular expression
php artisan localization:find -s -r "@Search.*@"
php artisan localization:find -s -r "/.*me$/"

PCRE functions are used

3.3 Command localization:clear

This command will remove all backup lang files.

Use php artisan help localization:clear for more informations about options.

Examples Remove all backups
php artisan localization:clear
Remove backups older than 7 days
php artisan localization:clear -d 7

6. Change Log

v2.x.3

v2.x.1

v2.x.0

  • new command localization:clear to remove backups
  • new option to specify output formatting (#17)
  • new option to specify flat arrays style output (#18)
  • new option to let the command translate sentences for you with Bing Translator
  • new translations are now:
    • marked with the TODO: prefix by default (if you ran two times the missing artisan command without translating lemma next to the first run, your missing translation were lost in the lang file. Now by default, just search for TODO in your lang file!)
    • translated of course if option t is used
    • shorten to their minimal value ( trans( 'message.child.this is a text' ) will now generate ['child'] => 'TODO: this is a text', and no more ['child'] => 'TODO: child.this is a text',)

  • totally refactored
