how to install language pack on app platform?

For proper localization inside my app I need additional language-packs to be installed. On my droplet I simply ran:

apt-get install language-pack-nl 

But that doesn’t work as a build command on app platform. Any suggestions how to add language-packs to the container?

Hey @VoordeMensen, unfortunately there isn’t a way to install language packs currently. I’ve added this as a feature request to our internal tracker.

If you need this for your app, I’d recommend using a Dockerfile which will give you complete control over the build environment.
