      Description

      To be able to handle unicode characters, I want the default build environment to use a better locale. Right now it uses POSIX, and using en_US.UTF-8 would help.

      #!bash
      
      pipelines:
        branches:
          master:
            - step:
                script:
                  - locale
      
      

      gives

      #!bash
      
      
      
      + locale
      LANG=
      LANGUAGE=
      LC_CTYPE="POSIX"
      LC_NUMERIC="POSIX"
      LC_TIME="POSIX"
      LC_COLLATE="POSIX"
      LC_MONETARY="POSIX"
      LC_MESSAGES="POSIX"
      LC_PAPER="POSIX"
      LC_NAME="POSIX"
      LC_ADDRESS="POSIX"
      LC_TELEPHONE="POSIX"
      LC_MEASUREMENT="POSIX"
      LC_IDENTIFICATION="POSIX"
      LC_ALL=
      
      

      Workarounds

      One workaround is to create your own docker image like this
      https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/39140980/how-do-i-create-a-docker-image-for-bitbucket-pipelines

      Using a Docker image that can looks something like this:

      #!bash
      
      FROM gcc #Some smart base image
       
      # Whatever you need more than what is on the base image required by your project
       
      # Set the locale
      RUN locale-gen en_US.UTF-8  
      ENV LANG en_US.UTF-8  
      ENV LANGUAGE en_US:en  
      ENV LC_ALL en_US.UTF-8     
      

      Another even easier workaround is to set these environment variables in your build script or Pipelines settings.
