I had the following trouble which prevented jobs from being processed:
~/work/stylesclub∴ script/rails c
Loading development environment (Rails 3.2.2)
1.9.3-p125 :001 > JSON.parse '["Andra Gallh\u00f6fer"]'
=> ["Andra Gallhöfer"]
1.9.3-p125 :002 > QC::OkJson.decode '["Andra Gallh\u00f6fer"]'
=> ["Andra Gallh\xF6fer"]
It turned out that "module QC" line masks "# encoding: UTF-8" line in okjson.rb. I updated OkJson module and moved the "offender" down.
Use latest okjson
Make encoding line the first in OkJson
Thanks for the fix!
