Twig Gettext Extractor Build Status

The Twig Gettext Extractor is Poedit friendly tool which extracts translations from twig templates.




Download the twig-gettext-extractor.phar file and store it somewhere on your computer.


You can run these commands to easily access twig-gettext-extractor from anywhere on your system:

$ sudo wget -O /usr/local/bin/twig-gettext-extractor
$ sudo chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/twig-gettext-extractor

Then, just run twig-gettext-extractor.



$ composer require umpirsky/twig-gettext-extractor


$ composer global require umpirsky/twig-gettext-extractor

Make sure you have ~/.composer/vendor/bin in your PATH and you're good to go:

$ export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/.composer/vendor/bin"

Don't forget to add this line in your .bashrc file if you want to keep this change after reboot.


By default, Poedit does not have the ability to parse Twig templates. This can be resolved by adding an additional parser (Edit > Preferences > Parsers) with the following options:

  • Language: Twig
  • List of extensions: *.twig
  • Invocation:
    • Parser command: <project>/vendor/bin/twig-gettext-extractor --sort-output --force-po -o %o %C %K -L PHP --files %F (replace <project> with absolute path to your project)
    • An item in keyword list: -k%k
    • An item in input file list: %f
    • Source code charset: --from-code=%c


Now you can update your catalog and Poedit will synchronize it with your twig templates.

Custom extensions

Twig-Gettext-Extractor registers some default twig extensions. However, if you are using custom extensions, you need to register them first before you can extract the data. In order to achieve that, copy the binfile into some custom place. A common practice would be: cp vendor/bin/twig-gettext-extractor bin/twig-gettext-extractor

Now you may add your custom extensions here:

$twig->addFunction(new \Twig_SimpleFunction('myCustomExtension', true));
$twig->addFunction(new \Twig_SimpleFunction('myCustomExtension2', true));

Command Line Arguments

You can also specify custom extensions and filters via command line, by adding the --functions and --filters arguments, e.g.:

--functions formRow,formElement --filters localizedCurrency

You can specify an unlimited amount of comma-separated function and filter names.

Similarly, you can specify the location of the gettext executable you want to use with --exec

--exec /usr/local/bin/xgettext
