Description Piotr Drąg 2017-03-23 16:21:53 UTC
After <>, many strings are missing from the .pot file at <>. It looks like d-l doesn’t extract strings marked with WEB_UI_STRING* (<>.
Comment 1 Claude Paroz 2017-03-23 16:52:46 UTC
D-L reads any XGETTEXT_OPTIONS located in po/Makevars files.
Comment 2 Piotr Drąg 2017-03-23 18:10:06 UTC
Does it include projects using intltool, like WebKitGTK+?
Comment 3 Claude Paroz 2017-03-23 18:21:59 UTC
Ah, no, this was for pure gettext extraction method. So I'm afraid this is an intltool/WebKitGTK+ issue, so nothing that we can do.
Comment 4 Piotr Drąg 2017-03-23 18:26:32 UTC
WebKitGTK+ itself doesn’t use intltool, but rather CMake — — maybe we could switch it to gettext on d-l side if they add po/Makevars?
Comment 5 Piotr Drąg 2017-04-25 18:44:31 UTC
After adding po/Makevars in, damned-lies correctly extracts all the strings, including WEB_UI_STRING*.

Nice job, thanks!
