Babel Plugin Makepot

Babel plugin used to scan JavaScript files for use of localization functions. It then compiles these into a gettext POT formatted file as a template for translation. By default the output file will be written to gettext.pot of the root project directory. This can be overridden using the "output" option of the plugin.

npm install @wordpress/babel-plugin-makepot --save-dev
