Python 2.7. Unicode Errors Simply Explained

Python 2.7. Unicode Errors Simply Explained

I know I'm late with this article for about 5 years or so, but people are still using Python 2.x, so this subject is relevant I think.

Some facts first:

  • Unicode is an international encoding standard for use with different languages and scripts
  • In python-2.x, there are two types that deal with text.
    1. str is an 8-bit string.
    2. unicode is for strings of unicode code points.

Install Hackintosh OS X Yosemite on Sony Vaio VPC-F11M1R/H

Successfully installed OS X Yosemite on my Sony VAIO F11M1R/H.


  • I had to buy USB sound card for $10 (Viewcon VE533 works for me), because I couldn't find audio drivers.
  • OS X won't connect to password protected Wi-Fi networks, so I had to remove a password.

So here's the steps that I followed:

  1. Make a bootable flash drive using UniBeast tool
View qr.js
import React, { Component } from 'react'
import Helmet from 'react-helmet'
import QrCode from 'qrcode.react'
import { uploadImage, addJson, getJson, getIpfsHashFromBytes32, getBytes32FromIpfsHash } from '../utils/ipfs'
import './ipfs.css'
export default class Ipfs extends Component {
constructor(props) {
ipfs config --json API.HTTPHeaders.Access-Control-Allow-Origin '["*"]'
ipfs config --json API.HTTPHeaders.Access-Control-Allow-Methods '["PUT", "GET", "POST"]'
