A command line tool that updates .strings of .xib and .storyboard using Localizable.strings.

Installation

brew install ishkawa/formulae/ls2xs

Usage

  • Enable base internationalization.
  • Add Localizable.strings for each languages.
  • Set keys of Localizable.strings to text values in .xib or .storyboard, as you set them to NSLocalizedString("key", "comment") in code.
  • Add "New Run Script Phase" to "Build Phases" of your application target, and set contents:
/usr/local/bin/ls2xs $TARGET_NAME

ls2xc generates .strings for .xib and .storyboard using ibtool --generate-strings-file. Then, ls2xc replaces value of .strings with value of Localizable.strings if it matches key of Localizable.strings.

Example

Suppose Main.storyboard(Base) has UILabel (Object ID: 4gA-LI-pd8, text: "hello").

Input

  • Localizable.strings(en): "hello" = "Hello";
  • Localizable.strings(ja): "hello" = "こんにちは";

Output

  • Main.strings(en): "4gA-LI-pd8.title" = "Hello";
  • Main.strings(ja): "4gA-LI-pd8.title" = "こんにちは";
