Convert PO files to JSON

## pojson

pojson is a tool that allows you to create JSON data files from PO files. These files are designed to be used with Obviel’s i18n support.

The Javascript Gettext already provides a Perl-based tool (po2json) that is very similar, so this can be seen as a rewrite to Python. One difference is that pojson does not output domain information in the resulting datastructure - it is one level less deep. The domain information must instead be supplied when the file is loaded.

Basic use to generate a JSON file:

$pojson <path/to/po> Pretty-print output: $ pojson -p <path/to/po>

Help:

$pojson --help Normally you would send the output to a file, such as: $ pojson something.po > something.json

Normally pojson will try to guess the encoding of the .po file, but you can also explicitly supply an encoding:

\$ pojson -e utf-8 something.po > something.json

## CHANGES

### 0.7 (2016-06-30)

• Python 3 support.

### 0.6 (2014-03-06)

• A new po2json_babel command that lets you create a babel compatible catalog structure. Thanks to Swen Mun (@longfin) for this feature.

• A bugfix concerning encoding handling in po2json.

### 0.4 (2012-06-20)

• Totally break the command line interface to simplify options. We only want to generate those JSON files that Obviel i18n likes. Works with Obviel 1.0b2 and later.

### 0.3 (2011-06-02)

• Actually got the output wrong so jsgettext couldn’t work with it. Fixed.

• Some sanity checking that the input file has the .po extension, as evidently polib accepts any file and still gives output…

### 0.2 (2011-06-02)

• Error when referring to non-existent po file

### 0.1 (2011-05-04)

• Initial release.
