Various conversions for non-Latin characters. So far the only method is to, to convert things like "Â" to "& Acirc;" (but without the space), but more will be added as required.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'uniconvert'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install uniconvert


Using the binary:

$ uniconvert /path/to/file.txt

In Ruby

text = Uniconvert.to(:HTML, 'Maître Corbeau, sur un arbre perché')



After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
