NAME

Locale::Maketext::Extract::Plugin::YAML - YAML format parser

VERSION

version 1.00

SYNOPSIS

    $plugin = Locale::Maketext::Extract::Plugin::YAML->new(
        $lexicon            # A Locale::Maketext::Extract object
        @file_types         # Optionally specify a list of recognised file types
    )

    $plugin->extract($filename,$filecontents);

DESCRIPTION

Extracts strings to localise from YAML files.

SHORT PLUGIN NAME

    yaml

VALID FORMATS

Valid formats are:

  •     key: _"string"
  •     key: _'string'
  •     key: _'string with embedded 'quotes''
  •     key: |-
             _'my folded
             string
             to translate'

    Note, the left hand side of the folded string must line up with the _, otherwise YAML adds spaces at the beginning of each line.

  •     key: |-
             _'my block
             string
             to translate
             '
    Note, you must use the trailing C<-> so that YAMl doesn't add a carriage
    return after your final quote.

KNOWN FILE TYPES

.yaml
.yml
.conf

REQUIRES

YAML

NOTES

The docs for the YAML module describes it as alpha code. It is not as tolerant of errors as YAML::Syck. However, because it is pure Perl, it is easy to hook into.

I have seen it enter endless loops, so if xgettext.pl hangs, try running it again with --verbose --verbose (twice) enabled, so that you can see if the fault lies with YAML. If it does, either correct the YAML source file, or use the file_types to exclude that file.

SEE ALSO

xgettext.pl

for extracting translatable strings from common template systems and perl source files.
