Are there any Czech people using Rails?


#1

Hello,
how do you solve the problems with czech characters? Do you use unicode
or ISO-8859-2/WIN1250? How do use methods like String:upcase etc. that
dont use czech characters?

I would appreciate any hints for this.

Thanks,
David M.

Ahoj Davide,
did you fix it already? There has been a similar topic on that (but I
didn’t
try it): http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/61481#61086

I have read a several threads about using unicode, but it seems to be
like a big hammer . I decided to use ISO-8859-2 and redefined String
methods for upcase, downcase, swapcase etc. and Array sorting method to
work correctly. It was easy but not sure if its a best way.

How do you solve this in you apps?

PS: I know we both talk czech but I decided to still use english to
remain this thread usable for others.

Actually, I haven’t been using other languages besides English in my
apps
yet. But the time will come, so I’m trying to follow up on this subject
and
see how others are dealing with it. I’m sure I’ll get back to it later.
Till
then I hope this issue will become obsolete … :slight_smile:
