BringBackSnowman

You know you miss this little guy: ☃.

If you don't know what that's about, this blog post explains what's up.

With the impending release of Rails 4, I was thinking about fun things in the history of Rails, and thought it'd be fun to bring him back.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'bring_back_snowman'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install bring_back_snowman

Usage

Just do it, and your forms will submit _snowman=☃ to ensure that your data is encoded in UTF-8.

It is configurable, if you prefer something else. Add this to your application.rb:

config.snowman = {:emoji => "😢"}

The key of the configuration hash will be the name of the url parameter. You can use UTF-8 characters for the key too.

You may also need to add the 'magic comment' at the top of the file:

# encoding: UTF-8

Please remember that if you don't use something that's UTF-8, this won't actually work to fix the bug.
