Ticket #2378 (closed defect: fixed)

Opened 10 years ago

Last modified 10 years ago

General content_type ticket.

Reported by: jorge.vargas Owned by:
Priority: high Milestone: 2.1a2
Component: TurboGears Version: trunk
Severity: normal Keywords:


This is a catchall titcket for #2158 and #2280 as each solution breaks it the other way.

#2280 explains that @expose(content_type="foo/bar') should be the "default way" of doing this. This is the current behavior in both 2.0.x and 2.1.x.

However #2263 raises the issue of modifying the content type "at runtime" in the case the pylons way of doing it does not work therefore we are using a flag (CUSTOM_CONTENT_TYPE) to prevent it being overwritten. The underlying problem regarding this is under investigation, but it appears to be a trashing of the response object, therefore the correct code:

    def stats(self):
        pylons.request['Content-Type'] = 'text/csv'
        return '1,2,3'

Does not work with 2.x and the corresponding must be used:

    def stats(self):
        pylons.request['Content-Type'] = 'text/csv'
        return '1,2,3'

None of them works for me. This is not accepted:

pylons.request['Content-Type'] = 'text/xml'


TypeError: 'Request' object does not support item assignment

Versions: python-pylons-0.9.7-2.fc12.noarch TurboGears2-2.0.3-3.fc12.noarch

Any other ideas, how to change content-type on TG 2.0?
