Encoding issue when sending non-ascii message

Juanlu001 avatarJuanlu001 created an issue

When trying to send a non-ascii message to a websocket, I get this:

File "/home/juanlu/Development/Python/sage/reloaded/lib/python2.7/site-packages/geventwebsocket/websocket.py", line 21, in send message = unicode(message).encode('utf-8') UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 8: ordinal not in range(128)

as the default encoding in Python 2.x is ascii. This:

message = unicode(message, 'utf-8').encode('utf-8')

will work.

    and I forgot to mention previously... the current:

    unicode(message).encode('utf-8')
    

    will never succeed unless message is pure ascii - in which case it's again superfluous.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
