jgmenu-i18n - support translation of jgmenu flavoured CSV menu data

jgmenu_run i18n <translation-file>

jgmenu_run i18n --init [<translation-file>]

jgmenu_run i18n reads jgmenu flavoured CSV menu data from stdin and either translates it, or creates a po style translation file

The <translation-file> argument can be a file or directory. If it is the latter, translation files will be searched for in this directory based on the environment variable $LANG, which will be assumed to be in the format ll_CC.UTF8 where ll is an ISO 639 two-letter language code and CC is an ISO 3166 two-letter country code. Files named ll_CC and ll will be used in said order.

Create a template po style translation file with blank msgid entries

Modules jgmenu-apps(1) and jgmenu-ob(1) have built-in i18n support. In order to use this features, a translation file is required. Here follow examples of how a translation file can be created:

Example 1.

jgmenu_run ob | jgmenu_run i18n --init >sv


Example 2.

jgmenu_run i18n --init <prepend.csv >sv


The result of the above commands would be a skeleton translation file (sv in this case) containing entries like this:

msgid "Web Browser"
msgstr ""


Manually translate the empty msgstr fields.

If using modules jgmenu-apps(1) or jgmenu-ob(1), just set csv_i18n in jgmenurc to directly point to a translation-file or a directory containing translation files.

In special circumstances, you may wish to include i18n in command plumbing. Here follow an example of how this could be constructed:

<csv-generating-command> \
    | jgmenu_run i18n <translation-file> \
    | jgmenu --vsimple
