Unfortunately, that is the problem. kiwi, which is written in CPP, has a
check for python version:
#if PY_MAJOR_VERSION >= 3
#define FROM_STRING PyUnicode_FromString
#define FROM_STRING PyString_FromString
ouch! IMHO, they made a major mistake here -- they should have used
Unicode in both versions, and cast a py2 string to unicode if need be.
So it can handle Unicode, but has no way to know it *should* handle
Unicode if we are using python 2.7 and unicode_literals.
actually, this looks like it can't handle unicode in the CPP code under py2
I?ve opened an issue with them,
<https://github.com/nucleic/kiwi/issues/39> though of course if someone
here had expertise in this it?d be very helpful. Worst case scenario I can
just cast every call to str, it just makes the code a bit of a mess.
unless they change the cpp, I think you'll have to do that. Then prepare
yourself for mysterious encoding errors to pop up later on ....
Now, whether or not this would fix your problem or not, I haven't a clue.
the error is:
TypeError: Expected object of typefloat,
int, or long. Got object of type unicode instead.
are you sure this is a unicode instead of string problem? MAybe you need to
call float() or int() on the value before passing it in.
Am I supposed to put # -*- coding: utf-8 -*- at the top of every source
that might create a string that calls these functions?
that will make no difference.
Or should I convert
the string somehow in my wrappers before passing down?
Or does from
__future__ import unicode_literals do this?
what that does is make text literals, like:
"this is some text"
a unicode object, rather than a py2string object -- but if the string comes
from somewhere else, it makes no difference.
But if that IS in the source, then you will get a lot more unicode objects
getting passed around.
