Does RestKit support GZip? #511

I'm using the following line to configure RestKit:

[[RKClient sharedClient] setValue:@"gzip" forHTTPHeaderField:@"Accept-Encoding"];

Nevertheless I get the following HeaderFields back from the Server:

(gdb) po [[objectLoader response] allHeaderFields]
Connection = "Keep-Alive";
"Content-Type" = "application/json";
Date = "Thu, 19 Jan 2012 16:54:00 GMT";
"Keep-Alive" = "timeout=5, max=98";
Server = Apache;
"Transfer-Encoding" = Identity;

Does RestKit support GZip? If yes - what am I doing wrong?

Thanks a lot,

I would also like to know how Restkit works with GZIP

RestKit is built on top of NSURLConnection, which provides transparent gzip/deflate support for response bodies. This should work with a server supporting gzip/deflate:

// Client level
[[RKClient sharedClient] setValue:@"gzip, deflate" forHTTPHeaderField:@"Accept-Encoding"];
