Setuptools gettext extension plugin

Project description

setuptools plugin for gettext

Compile .po files into .mo files.

This plugin adds build_mo, clean_mo and install_mo subcommands for as well as hooking those into standard commands.


By default, setuptools_gettext compiles and installs mo files when there is a po directory present that contains .po files.

The .mo files are installed adjacent to your package as package data in a subdirectory called locale.

You can override these settings in pyproject.toml:

requires = ["setuptools", "setuptools-gettext"]

# directory in which the .po files can be found 
source_dir = "po"
# directory in which the generated .mo files are placed when building
build_dir = "breezy/locale"
