Locales

Different countries have different data formats. Charlatan support locales as solution of this problem.

Currently available locales are here, en is default.

var Charlatan = require('charlatan');
Charlatan.setLocale('en-us');
Charlatan.Name.name();

Also you can use your own locale in yaml, json or plain hash.

var Charlatan = require('charlatan');
Charlatan.addLocale(myLocaleName, myLocaleFile);
Charlatan.setLocale(myLocaleName);
Charlatan.Name.name();

Note: If phrase not found in current locale, charlatan tries to then fallback into to base language, and then to en. For example ru_RU -> ru -> en.
