TIPS - How to fix header broken in FuelPHP
Khanh Nguyen • June 21, 2019tips
FuelPHP was a good framework from beginning. It was super easy, intuitivea and straightforward. Although it lacks some of must-have features such as :
- Dependencies Injection
- Templating Engine
Then, come Laravel and other newer frameworks make
FuelPHP become less attrative on GitHub
... So long for introducing part, let me introduce our problem.
1. The problem
When I was using Fuelphp to send email via SES in Japanese the header is completely wrong.
Here is the header:
From: email@example.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: 【Some subject】パスワー Message-ID: <email@example.com> Date: Thu, 13 Jun 2019 10:34:16 +0000 X-SES-Outgoing: 2019.06.13-184.108.40.206 Feedback-ID: 1.us-east-1.3cLUpO+HD0L+B+FopedfEoY28igDyGu4bMyBMMzGqdQ=:AmazonSES =?UTF-8?Q?=E3=83=89=E5=86=8D=E7=99=BB=E9=8C=B2=E3=81=AE=E3=81=94=E6=A1=88?= =?UTF-8?Q?=E5=86=85?= MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
Of-course, the header is broken, and user can't see any of the contents 😭
2. The solution
After a little time googling, we found this Link
Ofcourse, this guy told us the fact that:
If your header is more than 18 bytes, your header will be broken and there is no way to fix this ?
Are you fucking kidding me ??
Japanese email is
somewhat long and cumbersome, so limit your header under 18 bytes (or 9 kanji characters) is unacceptable. I know what happen when I told my boss about this.
So I tried to figure out what is the real problem here :
- Header maybe encoded and encoded result is wrong.
- If we allow, encoding header, what should we do?
2.1 The easy way
Because of the encoding header configuration, things has been gone wrong, so the most intuitive way is to disable it.
<?php return array( //省略 'defaults' => array( 'encode_headers' => false, ) //省略 );
2.2 The hard way
Because encoding header setting need
mbstring to be installed, we must have install
Don't have any special thoughts about this problem. I'm considering to move away from FuelPHP to another framework.
