Run package with Flutter

flutter packages pub run locale_gen

Run package with Dart

pub run locale_gen


Arguments are supported as of 0.1.0

You can pass a String or a num to as an argument.

Formatting for String: %1$s Formatting for num: %1$d

The number in between % and $ indicate the index of the argument. It is possible to place an argument in 1 language first but in another second:

ex (Grammatically incorrect but it makes my point):

nl '%1$s, ik woon in %2$s. Wist je dat niet?' => KOEN, ik woon in ANTWERPEN. Wist je dat niet?

fr 'I live in %2$s. You didn't knew that %1$s?" => I live in ANTWERP. You didn't knew that KOEN?

Working on mac?

add this to you .bash_profile

 flutter packages get && flutter packages pub run locale_gen

now you can use the locale_gen with a single command.
