Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

Sets default system locale

You can see which languages are available by
$ locale -a

On debian based systems you can set the locale by running
update-locale LANG={lang}
update-locale LANG=en_AU.utf8

It updates the file /etc/default/locale

On rhel based systems you can set default locale updating /etc/sysconfig/i18n
There doesn't seem to be a command line tool to update this file?!?


Tested on Ubuntu, CentOS


  • node[:locale][:lang] -- defaults to "en_US.utf8"
