Android Strings format

Project description

# Android-Strings-Format

This script takes a strings resource as a model and a second one as a target.
It will format the target strings resource in order to keep the same tags and comments order as the model one.
Be aware that the target strings resource will be overwritten if no output file has been specified.
The script will also warn you if a resource is missing inside the target strings.xml file.

You need to run this script inside of the res directory of your Android project.
Example of usage: python android-strings-format.py --target fr --output formatted_strings.xml

## Usage

android-strings-format.py [-h] [-m MODEL] -t TARGET
[-o OUTPUT]

* -h, --help show this help message and exit

* --model MODEL, -m MODEL
Language code of the strings resource to use as model.
If not specified, strings.xml inside the default
values directory will be used as the model.

* --target TARGET, -t TARGET
Language code of the strings resource to format

* --output OUTPUT, -o OUTPUT
Path to the output formatted strings resource. If not
specified, the target strings resource file will be
overwritten.

## Example

Target inside values directory
```
