Dart package that creates a binding between your translations from .arb files and your Flutter app. It generates boilerplate code for official Dart Intl library and adds auto-complete for keys in Dart code.

You can use this package directly (i.e. for Continuous Integration tools or via CLI) or leave it to Visual Studio Code or IntelliJ/Android Studio plugins to run it automatically whenever you modify ARB files.
Follow these steps to get started:
Add package configuration to your
pubspec.yaml file. Here is a full configuration for the package:
flutter_intl: enabled: true # Required. Must be set to true to activate the package. Default: false class_name: S # Optional. Sets the name for the generated localization class. Default: S main_locale: en # Optional. Sets the main locale used for generating localization files. Provided value should consist of language code and optional script and country codes separated with underscore (e.g. 'en', 'en_GB', 'zh_Hans', 'zh_Hans_CN'). Default: en arb_dir: lib/l10n # Optional. Sets the directory of your ARB resource files. Provided value should be a valid path on your system. Default: lib/l10n output_dir: lib/generated # Optional. Sets the directory of generated localization files. Provided value should be a valid path on your system. Default: lib/generated use_deferred_loading: false # Optional. Must be set to true to generate localization code that is loaded with deferred loading. Default: false localizely: # Optional settings if you use Localizely platform.

Default: false upload_as_reviewed: # Set to true if you want to mark uploaded translations as reviewed. Default: false download_empty_as: # Set to empty|main|skip, to configure how empty translations should be exported from the Localizely platform. Default: empty ota_enabled: # Set to true if you want to use Localizely Over-the-air functionality. Default: false
Add ARB files
Add one ARB file for each locale you need to support in your Flutter app.
Add them to
lib/l10n folder inside your project, and name them in a following way:
You can also change the ARB folder from
lib/l10n to a custom directory by adding the
arb_dir line in your
If you wonder how to format key-values content inside ARB files, here is detailed explanation.
To generate boilerplate code for localization, run the
generate program inside directory where your
pubspec.yaml file is located:
flutter pub run intl_utils:generate
This will produce files inside
You can also change the output folder from
lib/generated to a custom directory by adding the
output_dir line in your
Integration with Localizely
Upload main ARB file
flutter pub run intl_utils:localizely_upload_main --project-id <PROJECT_ID> --api-token <API_TOKEN> [--arb-dir <ARB_DIR>]
This will upload your main ARB file to Localizely. Check out the 'Configure package' section for additional upload configuration.
Download ARB files
flutter pub run intl_utils:localizely_download --project-id <PROJECT_ID> --api-token <API_TOKEN> [--arb-dir <ARB_DIR>]
This will download all available ARB files from the Localizely platform and put them under
lib/l10n folder, if you did not give a different
arb-dir, inside your project.
project-id can be omitted if
pubspec.yaml file contains
project_id configuration under
api-token can be omitted if
~/.localizely/credentials.yaml file contains
arb-dir has the value
lib/l10n as default and needs only to be set, if you want to place your ARB files in a custom directory.
