------------ Poedit ------------ a cross-platform gettext catalogs editing tool About ======= This program is GUI frontend to GNU gettext utilities (win32 version is part of the distribution) and catalogs editor/source code parser. It helps with translating application into another language. For details on principles of the solution used, see GNU gettext documentation or wxWidgets' wxLocale class reference. Installing ============ Binary easily-installable packages are provided for Windows and OS X and are part of many Linux distributions. Installing from sources ========================= Requirements: * Boost * Unicode build of wxWidgets library, version >= 2.8.7 (see http://www.wxwidgets.org) * Berkeley DB >= 4.7 if you need translation memory * If on Unix, GtkSpell 2.x plus GTK+ 2 build of wxWidgets for spell checking support Unix ------ Do the usual thing: ./configure make make install This works on OS X (which is a standard BSD Unix system) and Windows with MinGW toolchain and MSYS shell installed. You must have the dependencies installed in a location configure will find, e.g. by setting CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS appropriately. Mac OS X ---------- After compiling the application as above, you can additionally create an OS X bundle by running "make bundle" in the src/ subdirectory. This requires that GETTEXT_PREFIX environment variable is set and points to a directory with compiled GNU gettext programs installed (e.g. msgfmt; GETTEXT_PREFIX=/opt/local works if you used MacPorts to install gettext and so msgfmt is in /opt/local/bin/msgfmt). Finally, running "make dist-osx" in the toplevel directory will create disk image with the bundle. Windows using Visual Studio 2008 Express ------------------------------------------ Visual Studio makefile and project files are in win32/ directory; the project is the primary supported way, but the makefile allows you to customize location of 3rdparty software by setting variables documented near the top of the makefile. The simplest way of handling 3rd party dependencies is to get them from http://github.com/vslavik/poedit-deps. Put that sources into the "deps" directory. This is linked as submodule from the main Poedit repository; see "Installing from Git repository" below. Now go into the deps directory and run "ant" from command line. See deps/README for information on what you need to do that. You can also use Ant to build Poedit itself; run "ant -p" to see available targets. This is the most convenient way of building full Poedit distribution; it's how Poedit binaries are built. Installing from Git repository -------------------------------- Get the sources from github (http://github.com/vslavik/poedit): git clone git://github.com/vslavik/poedit.git If you are on Windows or OSX, you probably want the dependencies too. They are at git://github.com/vslavik/poedit-deps.git, but as it's a git submodule, you can get them by just doing git submodule init git submodule update --recursive If you get the sources directly from the Git repository, some generated files are not present. You have to run the ./bootstrap script to create them. After that, continue according to the instructions above. The ./bootstrap script requires some additional tools to be installed: * AsciiDoc, xsltproc and xmlto to generate the manual page * Bakefile, to generate Windows makefiles/projects * ImageMagick and png2icns from libicns to generate icons in Windows and OS X native formats If you don't have any of the dependencies, ./bootstrap will print errors, but will continue to run. In other words, if you don't need e.g. Windows stuff, you can ignore Windows-specific dependencies.
