Introduction to the Client
The Transifex CLI tool, also called “the client,” is a tool for working with source and translation files from the command line interface of various operating systems. Using the client, you’re able to sync files between your repository/local directory and Transifex. You can use the client with a CI tool and automate your localization process to avoid pushing files manually.
Whether you have experience with the command line or not, this interactive tutorial is intended for everyone who wishes to learn how the Transifex client works. There is no need to download anything - Just click on the link provided above, and follow the instructions.
The code for the client is Open Source; you can find it here on GitHub.
