This is a ColdBox Module to assist in resolving character encoding issues. For example, when a legacy database supports only 7-bit ASCII, and the modern web application receives user content in UTF-8.
Install using CommandBox:
box install encoding-utility
Within the component you'd like to make use of the Encoding Utlity, have WireBox inject an instance for you from the module's namespace:
property name="encutil" inject="[email protected]";
These are the methods implemented:
substitute(string input)Returns the content with reasonable substitutions made. For example, "é" becomes "e".
substituteForJSON(string input)Performs substitutions, being conscious of JSON serialization.
isBasicLatin(string input)Tests the input for any code points above 127.
getStringDetails(string input)Returns a structure of useful information.
