How to use Poedit with smarty templates?

I’m using PoEdit on smarty templates (phtml and tpl files) with the following Poedit configuration for PHP parser :

Extensions:

*.php;*.phtml;*.tpl

Parser command :

xgettext --language=PHP --force-po -o %o %C %K %F

If i’m using gettext inside PHP tags <?php _('test'); ?> Poedit detect that translation as expected. But i’m using Smarty {_('test')} for displaying the translation, Poedit don’t detect it.

Is there a way to make Smarty detect { and } characters as PHP tags ?

Answer

Recently I got to work with Yii used with Smarty and gettext. but poedit not support the syntax of smarty.

https://github.com/Garefild/PoeditSmarty

And here comes the use of PoeditSmarty allowed Poedit recognize the syntax of Smarty.

{t}Text to be localized{/t}
{"Text to be localized"|_} 
{_("Text to be localized")}

Very simple to use, PoeditSmarty creates a “pot” file which Poedit know to read.

For example, I have a file “Header.tpl”

        <form class="login" method="post" id="login">
        <h2>{__('login')}</h2>
        <div class="wrap">
            <input type="text" autofocus="" placeholder="{__('Username')}" class="form-control" name="username">
            <br>
            <input type="password" placeholder="{__('Password')}" class="form-control" name="password">
            <div class="captcha">
                <img alt="" src="" id="codeImage">
                <label class="checkbox">
                    <span class="pull-right">
                        <a href="#" id="code" class="forgot">{__('Get a new code')}</a>
                    </span>
                </label>
                <input type="text" placeholder="{__('verify Code')}" class="form-control" name="verifyCode">
            </div>
            <button type="submit" class="btn login-btn" name="submitLogin">
                <i class="fa fa-lock"></i>
                {__('Log me in')}
            </button>
            <hr>
            <div class="password">
                <p>{__('Do you not remember your password')} ?</p>
                <a data-toggle="modal" class="forgot">{__('Password Recovery')}</a>
            </div>
            <hr>
            <h3 class="logo">{__('siteName')}</h3>
        </div>
    </form> 

I’ll run the PoeditSmarty via cmd

java -jar "C:Program FilesPoeditGettextToolsbinPoeditSmarty.jar" -o C:UsersMikeDesktopxxxtempPot.pot -c UTF-8 -k __ -f header.tpl

The result of pot file
