Extract translatable (ng2-translate) strings and save as a JSON or Gettext pot file. Merges with existing strings if the output file already exists.


Install the package in your project:

npm install @biesbjerg/ng2-translate-extract --save-dev

Add an extract script to your project's package.json:

"scripts": {
  "extract": "ng2-translate-extract --dir ./src --output ./ --format=json --clean"

You can now run npm run extract to extract strings from your project's src dir. The extracted strings are saved in JSON-format in your project's root.

Modify the scripts arguments as required.
