Description (last modified by cboos)

Hi guys,

I was translating my trac project to portuguese, and when I changed line 415 of /usr/share/python-support/trac/trac/ticket/report.py

in description = 'String'

This string doesn't support chars like ç ã á í used in portuguese :( But the othes string in others file accepted it

My codification is UTF-8

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

0.10.3 does not support unicode throughout. if it happens in 0.11 too pls reopen.

comment:2 in reply to: ↑ 1 Changed 7 years ago by cboos

  • Description modified (diff)
  • Keywords unicode i18n added; codification removed

Replying to anonymous:

0.10.3 does not support unicode throughout. if it happens in 0.11 too pls reopen.

Not true, Trac supports unicode since 0.10.

Two remarks:

  • description = 'String' should rather be description = u'String' when String contains non-ascii characters
  • you're better off following current sandbox/i18n efforts and #5470/#5476

I just installed trac, (the LATEST version) and had the same problem. Here, it's what I got: Traceback (most recent call last):

I was just trying to update some data about my project, and couldn't save it.

I put the priority as high because it prevents me from using it.

Thank you in advance.


comment:4 Changed 7 years ago by alexey.lustin <lustin@…>

when i translate the my Trac 0.11 in to russian lang i would use directly decode
for example

   StringInMyLang = 'example russian string'.decode('utf-8')

PS besides i have allready try to write in this comment example in russian text and catch Trac exeption

comment:5 Changed 7 years ago by carlos@…

Is there any known workaround the issue?

If I set the default encoding to UTF-8 (or whatever) and the text being read is UTF-8, will the problem persist? How do I set the default encoding?

TIA, Carlos
