[PATCH] lazy_gettext doesn't work for non-ascii encodings

Description (last modified by kevin) (diff)

As it is, lazy_gettext function will not work for non-ascii encodings because it calls str() on unicode string. Moreover, it breaks the contract because docstring for gettext() clearly says that a Unicode string is returned.

Simple fix is to replace str() call with unicode().

Here is the patch, inline:

def str(self):

  • return str(self.eval())

+ return unicode(self.eval())

def mod(self, other):

return self.eval() % other

It turns out more tricker than I described. E.g. it doesn't work for text in attributes .

class lazystring need to modified to:

class lazystring(object):
    def __unicode__(self):
        return unicode(self.eval())

    def __str__(self):
        return str(self.eval())

PLUS, Kid itself need to be patched. pull.py:180:

def to_unicode(value, encoding):
        return unicode(value) # use __unicode__ if defined
    except TypeError:
    if not isinstance(value, str):
        value = str(value)
    return unicode(value, encoding)

It's not really done yet, because the patch to lazystring still need to be applied.

Here it is:

+    def __unicode__(self):
+        return unicode(self.eval())
