Crowdin::API

A Ruby interface to the Crowdin API.

For more about the Crowdin API see https://crowdin.com/page/api.

WARNING: This is a development version: It contains the latest changes, but may also have severe known issues, including crashes and data loss situations. In fact, it may not work at all.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'crowdin-api'

And then execute: $ bundle

Or install it yourself as: $ gem install crowdin-api

Usage

Start by creating a connection to Crowdin with your credentials:

Please note that almost all API calls require the Project Identifier and Project API Key.

require 'crowdin-api'
require 'logger'

crowdin = Crowdin::API.new(api_key: API_KEY, project_id: PROJECT_ID)
crowdin.log = Logger.new $stderr

As well there are several API methods (get_projects, create_project) that require User API Key instead of regular Project API Key.

crowdin = Crowdin::API.new(account_key: ACCOUNT_KEY)

Now you can make requests to the api.

Documentation: https://crowdin.com/page/api/change-directory

First parameter name - full directory path that should be modified (e.g. /MainPage/AboutUs) (required)

Optional params: * :new_name - new directory name * :title - new directory title to be displayed in Crowdin UI * :export_pattern - new direcrory export pattern. Is used to create directory name and path in resulted translations bundle.

When renaming directory the path can not be changed (it means new_name parameter can not contain path, name only).

crowdin.upload_translation(
  files = [
    { :dest => 'strings.xml', :source => 'strings_uk.xml' },
    { :dest => 'array.xml', :source => 'array_uk.xml' }
  ],

Export Translations

Build ZIP archive with the latest translations.

Note! This method can be invoked only once per 30 minutes (there is no such restriction for organization plans).

Also API call will be ignored if there were no changes in the project since previous export. You can see whether ZIP archive with latest translations was actually build by status attribute (built or skipped) returned in response.
