tzupdate 1.2.0

Set the system timezone based on IP geolocation

tzupdate is a fully automated utility to set the system time using geolocation.

Usage

By default, tzupdate will geolocate you, get the timezone for that geolocation, and then attempt to link that timezone to /etc/localtime. You can pass -p to print the detected timezone without linking. You can also pass -a to pass an IP address to use, instead of geolocating you.

$ sudo tzupdate
Set system timezone to Europe/London.

$ pip install -U tzupdate
