SilverStripe i18n replacement

Work in progress

This module is still work in progress and a hack-ish replacement for the SilverStripe i18n (currently only I18nTextCollector). This module exists because of current limitations in SilerStripe and might change its API or be completely obsolete once i18n is re-factored.

Current Features

  • Improved Text Collection
    • merge with existing lang file
    • will also collect db_, has_many:, ... entities
    • Better task output (displays what is untranslated, what is new and what has been removed)
    • untranslated strings are prefixed with __ (will probably change to yml comment when I figure out how to)

Installation

Requirements

  • php needs write permissions to the lang folder(s)

Installing the module

  1. Install the module using composer or download and place in your project folder
  2. Run ?flush=1

Usage

BetterI18NTextCollectorTask

Parameters:

  • targetlocale the locale for with the lang file should be created
    eg: en or a list of locales: en,de,fr
    default: en
  • module the module to translate (will write to module/lang/$targetlocale.yml) eg: mysite, framework, mysite,framework or themes/mytheme default: mysite

Examples:

  • http://mysite.com/dev/tasks/BetterI18nTextCollectorTask?flush=1
  • http://mysite.com/dev/tasks/BetterI18nTextCollectorTask?targetlocale=de,en&module=mysite&flush=1
  • With sake/cli: sake dev/tasks/BetterI18nTextCollectorTask flush=1
  • With sake/cli: sake dev/tasks/BetterI18nTextCollectorTask "targetlocale=de,en&module=mysite&flush=1"

Warning: running the BetterI18nTextCollectorTask will overwrite your existing lang file. It will merge existing entities in the file, but will delete unused ones.
