Attribute reference

Name of the role which owns this database (defaults to "postgres").

encoding, collation, and ctype

By default, BundleWrap will only create a database using your default PostgreSQL template, which most likely is template1. This means it will use the same encoding and collation that template1 uses. By specifying any of the attributes encoding, collation, or ctype, BundleWrap will instead create a new database from template0, thus allowing you to override said database attributes.

These options are creation-time only.
