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
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
+---------+---------------+-------------+ | key | en | nl | +---------+---------------+-------------+ | name | name | naam | | job | job | baan | +---------+---------------+-------------+
php artisan langman:show users.name
Brings only the translation of the
name key in all languages.
php artisan langman:show users.name.first
Brings the translation of a nested key.
php artisan langman:show package::users.name
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 (
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
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 users.name php artisan langman:trans users.name.first php artisan langman:trans users.name --lang=en php artisan langman:trans package::users.name
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 users.name php artisan langman:remove package::users.name
It'll remove that key from all language files.
Renaming a key
php artisan langman:rename users.name full_name
This will rename
users.name to be
users.full_name, the console will output a list of files where the key used to exist.
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.
