Change console and shell keyboard layout in NIX-based repl?
paulatdunedin

How can I change the keyboard layout that the console and shell uses in a NIX-based repl?

The code editor work fine with my UK keyboard layout but the console and the shell are using US keyboard layout.

This doesn't happen if I use an SQLite, Python, HTML etc. template to start but I need NIX for what I'm working on.

Hi, I have a similar issue, although in my case it happens also when code runs in python3.

When I am using Chromium on Linux computer to browse Repl.it:
I can type "<" in the editor, but the same key is received as "\" in the python3 console...

WHen I use a Windows computer, it all works as expected (exact same REPL). Which is weird. Can it be "browser" related?
