Translation-extract stumbles at main template

Plone 5.1.5, infrae.i18nextract, i18ndude.

Running bin/translation-extract and it rejects the copy of main_template.pt in my overrides folder with a 'bad syntax in attributes' TAL error.

It's correct: the template (this bit is identical to the distribution) has:

tal:attributes="class body_class; dir python:isRTL and 'rtl' or 'ltr'; python:plone_view.patterns_settings();"
Any ideas on fixing the template or the extract script?

Thanks

The reason might be that tal:attributes can work with a dict (in this case python:plone_view.patterns_settings()) or with attribute name and value pairs (class body_class; dir python:isRTL and 'rtl' or 'ltr').
Probably i18ndude has trouble with that.

A quick win might be changing:

<el tal:attributes="class body_class; dir python:isRTL and 'rtl' or 'ltr'; 
 python:plone_view.patterns_settings();" />

to:

<el class="${body_class}"
      dir="${python:isRTL and 'rtl' or 'ltr'}" 
      tal:attributes="python:plone_view.patterns_settings();" 
/>

Let us know!

Are you using the latest version of i18ndude? I think this may have been fixed in a more recent version.
Possibly related to https://github.com/collective/i18ndude/issues/36 although that was fixed in i18ndude 4.3 in 2017.

It could also be that you need a newer zope.tal version in your i18ndude.

Thanks, Alessandro. That was plausible but didn't work. I'm following Maurits' suggestions now and in the usual cascading requirement conflicts when the version of one component is bumped up.

Catch-up. After much faffing with newer versions of zope.tal and i18ndude I am still seeing an error parsing tal:attributes="python:plone_view.patterns_settings();". Slightly shamefully I have resorted to deleting that line, running bin/translation-extract successfully, then putting the line back again. At least it moves me on to the next problem, and I'll come back to this one.
