I’d be surprised if poboy is useful to anyone I don’t work with, but I wrote a README, so that should be shared with the internet.
Finds all the gettext calls that have an inline fallback and moves that fallback into the messages.po file. Thus, you can use
___('msgid', 'msgstr') when you’re writing new code and use this script to clean up afterwards.
poboy won’t edit any code files. Instead, it prints out a unified diff that you can check for correctness and send to patch. I didn’t want to deal with rewriting files safely.
How I use it
Find all the strings that have a fallback:
poboy locale/en_US/LC_MESSAGES/messages.po --find
Find the strings with a fallback that aren’t already in messages.po:
poboy locale/en_US/LC_MESSAGES/messages.po -an
--add (to the .po file) and
Show the strings that will be added and the cleanup patch:
poboy locale/en_US/LC_MESSAGES/messages.po -n
And the fun one, add the strings to messages.po and generate a cleanup patch:
poboy locale/en_US/LC_MESSAGES/messages.po > poboy.patch
