tzupdate is a fully automated utility to set the system time using geolocation.
- Small, easy to understand codebase
- Queries multiple geolocation services in parallel and returns the first with a successful result
- Protects against directory traversal and invalid results when linking /etc/localtime
cargo install tzupdate
Set system timezone to Europe/London.
Internally, this geolocates you, gets the timezone for that geolocation, and then updates the system's local time zone.
You can see what tzupdate would do without actually doing it by passing
and specify an alternative IP address by using
-i. This is not an exhaustive
list of options, see
tzupdate --help for that.
