README

Generate pot translation file using "mytest" as locale domain:
    xgettext --language=Python --keyword=_:1,2 -d mytest localedemo.py frontend/template/*

When using translatable strings in templates, variable arguments must be
placed outside of the _() function. Example:
    _("foobar %s" % x) # wrong
    _("foobar %s") % x # correct

If xgettext fails parsing html elements like this:
    <input type="submit" value="{{ _('bla') }}" />

Try --language=Php, or pipe it to localefix.py:

    #!/usr/bin/env python
    # localefix.py
    import re
    import sys

    if __name__ == "__main__":
        try:
            filename = sys.argv[1]
            assert filename != "-"
            fd = open(filename)
        except:
            fd = sys.stdin

        line_re = re.compile(r'="([^"]+)"')
        for line in fd:
            line = line_re.sub(r"=\\1", line)
            sys.stdout.write(line)
        fd.close()


Merge against existing pot file:
  msgmerge old.po mytest.po > new.po
  mv new.po mytest.po

Compile:
  msgfmt mytest.po -o locale/{lang}/LC_MESSAGES/mytest.mo


Compile files in this demo:
  msgfmt mytest_pt_BR.po -o frontend/locale/pt_BR/LC_MESSAGES/mytest.mo
  msgfmt mytest_es_ES.po -o frontend/locale/es_ES/LC_MESSAGES/mytest.mo
