Laravel Langman

Langman is a language files manager in your artisan console, it helps you search, update, add, and remove translation lines with ease. Taking care of a multilingual interface is not a headache anymore.

Begin by installing the package through Composer. Run the following command in your terminal:

$ composer require themsaid/laravel-langman

Once done, add the following line in your providers array of config/app.php:


This package has a single configuration option that points to the resources/lang directory, if only you need to change the path then publish the config file:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Themsaid\Langman\LangmanServiceProvider"


Showing lines of a translation file

php artisan langman:show users

You get:

| key     | en            | nl          |
| name    | name          | naam        |
| job     | job           | baan        |
php artisan langman:show

Brings only the translation of the name key in all languages.

php artisan langman:show

Brings the translation of a nested key.

php artisan langman:show

Brings the translation of a vendor package language file.

php artisan langman:show users --lang=en,it

Brings the translation of only the "en" and "it" languages.

php artisan langman:show users.nam -c

Brings only the translation lines with keys matching the given key via close match, so searching for nam brings values for keys like (name, username, branch_name_required, etc...).

In the table returned by this command, if a translation is missing it'll be marked in red.

Finding a translation line

php artisan langman:find 'log in first'

You get a table of language lines where any of the values matches the given phrase by close match.

Searching view files for missing translations

php artisan langman:sync

This command will look into all files in resources/views and app and find all translation keys that are not covered in your translation files, after that it appends those keys to the files with a value equal to an empty string.

Filling missing translations

php artisan langman:missing

It'll collect all the keys that are missing in any of the languages or has values equals to an empty string, prompt asking you to give a translation for each, and finally save the given values to the files.

Translating a key

php artisan langman:trans
php artisan langman:trans
php artisan langman:trans --lang=en
php artisan langman:trans

Using this command you may set a language key (plain or nested) for a given group, you may also specify which language you wish to set leaving the other languages as is.

This command will add a new key if not existing, and updates the key if it is already there.

Removing a key

php artisan langman:remove
php artisan langman:remove

It'll remove that key from all language files.

Renaming a key

php artisan langman:rename full_name

This will rename to be users.full_name, the console will output a list of files where the key used to exist.


langman:sync, langman:missing, langman:trans, and langman:remove will update your language files by writing them completely, meaning that any comments or special styling will be removed, so I recommend you backup your files.

Web interface

If you want a web interface to manage your language files instead, I recommend Laravel 5 Translation Manager by Barry vd. Heuvel.
