wp i18n make-json

Extract JavaScript strings from PO files and add them to individual JSON files.

$ wp i18n make-json <source> [<destination>] [--purge] [--pretty-print]

For JavaScript internationalization purposes, WordPress requires translations to be split up into one Jed-formatted JSON file per JavaScript source file.

See https://make.wordpress.org/core/2018/11/09/new-javascript-i18n-support-in-wordpress/ to learn more about WordPress JavaScript internationalization.

OPTIONS

<source>
Path to an existing PO file or a directory containing multiple PO files.
[<destination>]
Path to the destination directory for the resulting JSON files. Defaults to the source directory.
[--purge]
Whether to purge the strings that were extracted from the original source file. Defaults to true, use --no-purge to skip the removal.
[--pretty-print]
Pretty-print resulting JSON files.

EXAMPLES

# Create JSON files for all PO files in the languages directory
$ wp i18n make-json languages

# Create JSON files for my-plugin-de_DE.po and leave the PO file untouched.
