Problems with character encoding on paws-public

7

Having utf8 encoded special characters in the result of my python scripts, there results some problems with character encoding displaying the script (or any other file) via the paws-public url. e.g. paws-public.wmflabs.org/paws-public/User:Mfchris84/hov_id.tsv

Does anyone know this problem? Thanks in advance!

if you show the script, that will be quit good to analyze the issue.

you find the script under paws-public.wmflabs.org/paws-public/User:Mfchris84/hov_id.py but the prevent misunderstanding: if i open hov_id.tsv under normal user paws-url (paws.wmflabs.org/paws/hub/user/Mfchris84/hov_id.tsv) or or download it there are no problems with character encoding. this occurs only via the paws-public URL.

This is the browser wrongly guessing the encoding for the file. Getting the file via curl, in a utf8 encoded terminal, works. I want to setup a better viewing system for paws-public, so I'm not sure if it is worth it to do much here, but I'll check if I can get an easy fix with nginx.
