  • STEP 1: Create a protected branch

    Select a branch to protect in the repository you are working on.
    You can do this when you create a project within Writer or in the project’s settings.

  • STEP 2: ADD COMMITS

    Keep doing your thing–writing code. Writer will not look
    at your code until you make a pull request.

  • STEP 3: Open a pull request

    Any pull request to the protected branch triggers a Writer status check.
    Writer instantly scans all chosen (whitelist/blacklist) resource files in your feature branch,
    allowing merge if the files are up to date on localization. If the status check fails,
    the pull request will be halted until translations have occurred within Writer.

  • STEP 4: Let Writer Do the localization work

    If the status check fails, your untranslated strings are sent to Writer,
    where all the translations occur. When localization is complete, the new or edited
    resource files are committed directly to a new Writer branch.

  • STEP 5: CHECK for the localized branch and pull

    Once the localization is comlete, you will see an automatic pull request
    to your feature branch from the Writer branch. Once you complete the
    pull request for the localized branch, the status check will pass and your
    feature branch can merge with your protected branch.

  • STEP 6: MERGE AND CARRY ON

    Your feature branch, with the new localized files, is merged to the master.
    Once merged, pull requests preserve a record of the historical changes
    to your code. These records are searchable and provide an audit trail
    for you or anyone else who wants to see who changed what and when.

Automated
Status Checks

Add content status checks to your pull requests. Status checks can be either strict or loose to suit your approach to CI and deployment.

Fully Secure
& Auditable

Writer doesn’t read your source code. The integration grants access to a specific branch and files within a repository of your choice.

One Click

Writer is compatible with GitHub Community
