Reaction::Manual::Unicode - Unicode support in Reaction


This document gives you notes about using Unicode in Reaction.

Working with Catalyst

Catalyst has a plugin which is named Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode, It decodes the request parameters to utf8 when preparing parameters, and decodes the response body after the request is finalized. Since, Reaction uses utf8 by default, and does this already. So, you should avoid using the Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode.

Note about LayoutSet

LayoutSet files MUST be in utf8, since ASCII is a subset of utf8, You don't need to worry about anything if you are using plain ASCII. But people who uses CJK, must be sure to configure your editors to save files in utf8.

Note about Database

If you don't see the correct result. Be sure to double check the database related configuration (connecting parameter or database server side config for example). Database MUST be configured to use utf8. Reaction won't decode or encode anything. It just return the data as it is from database.
