Overview

The PotGenerator generates POT format string from CodeObjects::Base and CodeObjects::ExtraFileObject.

POT and PO

POT is an acronym for “Portable Object Template”. POT is a template file to create PO file. The extension for POT is “.pot”. PO file is an acronym for “Portable Object”. PO file has many parts of message ID (msgid) that is translation target message and message string (msgstr) that is translated message of message ID. If you want to tranlsate “Hello” in English into “Bonjour” in French, “Hello” is the msgid ID and “Bonjour” is msgstr. The extension for PO is “.po”.

How to extract msgids

The PotGenerator has two parse methods:

#parse_objects extracts msgids from docstring and tags of CodeObjects::Base objects. The docstring of CodeObjects::Base object is parsed and a paragraph is extracted as a msgid. Tag name and tag text are extracted as msgids from a tag.

#parse_files extracts msgids from CodeObjects::ExtraFileObject objects. The file content of CodeObjects::ExtraFileObject object is parsed and a paragraph is extracted as a msgid.

Usage

To create a .pot file by PotGenerator, instantiate a PotGenerator with a relative working directory path from a directory path that has created .pot file, parse CodeObjects::Base objects and CodeObjects::ExtraFileObject objects, generate a POT and write the generated POT to a .pot file. The relative working directory path is “..” when the working directory path is “.” and the POT is wrote into “po/yard.pot”.

Examples:

Generate a .pot file

po_file_path = "po/yard.pot"
po_file_directory_pathname = Pathname.new(po_file_path).directory)
working_directory_pathname = Pathname.new(".")
relative_base_path = working_directory_pathname.relative_path_from(po_file_directory_pathname).to_s
# relative_base_path -> ".."
generator = YARD::I18n::PotGenerator.new(relative_base_path)
generator.parse_objects(objects)
generator.parse_files(files)
pot = generator.generate
po_file_directory_pathname.mkpath
File.open(po_file_path, "w") do |pot_file|
  pot_file.print(pot)
end

Instance Method Details

- (String) generate

Generates POT from @messages.

One PO file entry is generated from a Message in @messages.

Locations of the Message are used to generate the reference line that is started with “#: ”. relative_base_path passed when the generater is created is prepended to each path in location.

Comments of the Message are used to generate the translater-comment line that is started with “# ”.
