Navigating Between Text and Message File

This feature is only supported in the Ultimate edition.

The following is only valid when Python Plugin is installed and enabled!

Use the py i18n icon gutter icons to navigate from a template to a localization file. To jump from localization file to the corresponding template, use Ctrl+Click.

Navigating from template to locale

To navigate from a template to locale

  1. Click py i18n icon icon in the gutter next to the desired tag.
  2. If a tag is referenced from several locales, select one from the pop-up window:
    py i18n choose locale

    The selected django.po file opens in the editor, with the caret resting at the msgid that corresponds to the tag in question.

Navigating from locale to template

To navigate from a locale to template

  1. In the desired django.po file, place the caret at the comment above the locale in question:
    py i18n jump to template
  2. On the main menu, choose Navigate | Declaration, or use any other method, described in Navigating to Declaration or Type Declaration of a Symbol. The corresponding template files opens in the editor.

Viewing references

To view references to a localization tag

  • Hover your mouse pointer over the gutter icon next to the desired tag. A balloon that pops up, shows a list of locale files that reference the selected tag:
    i18n referenced

To view which template a locale references

  • Keeping Ctrl key pressed, hover your mouse pointer over the comment above the locale in question. The comment turns into a hyperlink, and the balloon shows reference:
