ResponseEncoder: replace text_only with something more flexible

Anonymous avatarAnonymous created an issue

It seems that currently the default is to only encode only "text/*".

This can cause problems if the action returns something like "application/xml":

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/home/jcigar/venvs/amnesiacp/lib/python2.7/site-packages/cherrypy/wsgiserver/", line 1302, in communicate
  File "/usr/home/jcigar/venvs/amnesiacp/lib/python2.7/site-packages/cherrypy/wsgiserver/", line 831, in respond
  File "/usr/home/jcigar/venvs/amnesiacp/lib/python2.7/site-packages/cherrypy/wsgiserver/", line 2126, in respond
    chunk = chunk.encode('ISO-8859-1')
UnicodeEncodeError: 'latin-1' codec can't encode characters in position 435-442: ordinal not in range(256)

The encoding tool does text only by default so it doesn't try to encode something like "image/gif".

I think that text_only should be replaced with something more flexible, something like:

tools.encode.mime_types = ['text/*', 'application/xml']
