Utf8Codec

Inheritance diagram of Utf8Codec
class Utf8Codec[source]

A codec able to encode/decode utf8 strings to/from bytes. Useful to adapt i/o encodings in a codec pipe.

Example:

>>> from taurus.core.util.codecs import CodecFactory

>>> cf = CodecFactory()
>>> codec = cf.getCodec('zip_utf8_json')
>>>
>>> # first encode something
>>> data = { 'hello' : 'world', 'goodbye' : 1000 }
>>> format, encoded_data = codec.encode(("", data))
>>>
>>> # now decode it
>>> _, decoded_data = codec.decode((format, encoded_data))
>>> print(decoded_data)

Import from taurus.core.util.codecs as:

from taurus.core.util.codecs import Utf8Codec
decode(data, *args, **kwargs)[source]

decodes the given data from a bytes.

encode(data, *args, **kwargs)[source]
