Template toolkit translation tools

This page is concerned with the migration of the translation tools from HTML template pro to Template Toolkit, for the templates themselves see Template_toolkit_test

There is still quite a bit of work to be done

TODO / issues

Task Script(s) progress Details
Javascript parsing TmplTokenizer.pm - currently the javascript functionality from the old TmplTokenizer (split_js and identify_js_translatable) still exists but is not yet used by next_token
Closing tag representation TTParser.pm / LangInstaller.pm started closing tags are missbehaving in the current TTParser, they are put into a TmplToken's string in their origional form but are not put back into the installed template
Newline issue TmplTokenizer.pm fixed installing a language spits out a 'correct' file but with no new lines, is the result of folding down whitespace in string_canon added string_canon_safe for use internally that does NOT compact newlines
HTML tag attributes TTParser.pm / TmplTokenizer.pm - the attributes for HTML tags are easily available through HTML:Parser however the other translation scripts expect them in a specific format (they rely heavily on regex)
Representation of other tokens TTParser.pm / TmplTokenizer.pm - Processing instructions and PCDATA, as well as others, are currently not represented.
TmplToken attributes TTParser.pm / TmplTokenizer.pm / TmplToken.pm - Not all the attributes within TmplToken are set as they should be
installation issues Langinstaller.pm lines 132 and 174 - Uninitialized value $prefs_name in concat
unitinitialized value xgetext.pl line 105 - $tag seems to be undefined and creating a language really complains about it


TTParser.pm is a subclass of HTML::Parser and deals with extracting tokens, setting their type and exposing them via the methods next_token, peek_token, unshift_token.

TmplTokenizer.pm deals with interfacing between the other translation tools and TTParser, parametrizing the tokens (if enabled, can group many tokens into a single one) as well as provider helper methods/functions used by the other translation tools.
