puppet-locales Build Status

Manage locales via Puppet

Supported Puppet versions

  • Puppet >= 4
  • Last version supporting Puppet 3: v2.4.0

Usage

By default, en and de locales will be generated.

  class { 'locales': }

Configure a bunch of locales.

  class { 'locales': 
    locales   => ['en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8', 'fr_CH.UTF-8 UTF-8'],
  }

Advanced usage allows you to select which locales will be configured as well as the default one.

  class { 'locales':
    default_locale  => 'en_US.UTF-8',
    locales         => ['en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8', 'fr_CH.UTF-8 UTF-8'],
  }

You can also set specific locale environment variables. See the locale man-page for available LC_* environment variables and their descriptions:

  class { 'locales':
    default_locale  => 'en_US.UTF-8',
    locales         => ['en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8', 'fr_CH.UTF-8 UTF-8', 'en_DK.UTF-8 UTF-8', 'de_DE.UTF-8 UTF-8' ],
    lc_time         => 'en_DK.UTF-8',
    lc_paper        => 'de_DE.UTF-8',
  }
