wp i18n make-json

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

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 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.
[--update-mo-files]
Whether MO files should be updated as well after updating PO files. Only has an effect when used in combination with --purge.
[--pretty-print]
Pretty-print resulting JSON files.
[--use-map=<paths_or_maps>]
Whether to use a mapping file for the strings, as a JSON value, array to specify multiple. Each element can either be a string (file path) or object (map).
