Excel to ARB Generator #

A Dart package that enables you to convert Excel files into ARB (Application Resource Bundle) files for localization.

Installation #

To activate the package, run the following command:

dart pub global activate excel2arb

Usage #

Once the package is activated, you can use the excel2arb command to convert Excel files to ARB files. Here's how:

excel2arb -u <excel-file-url> -s <sheet-name-to-parse> -o <path-to-arb-output-directory> -g <generate-l10n>

You can directly run a script from an activated package from the command line. If you are unable to run the script directly, you can also use dart pub global run.

dart pub global run excel2arb -u <excel-file-url> -s <sheet-name-to-parse> -o <path-to-arb-output-directory> -g <generate-l10n>
  • -u, --excel-url :               The URL of the Excel file to convert (e.g., https://example.com/sample.xlsx)
  • -s, --sheet-name :          The name of the sheet to parse (default: Localization)
  • -o, --output-directory :    The path to the directory where the ARB files will be generated (default: current directory)
  • -g, --gen-l10n :               Generate l10n files (default: false)

Example #

excel2arb -u https://example.com/sample.xlsx -s Localization -o output_dir -g true
