This site is created to help developers quickly detect unpleasant cyrillic symbols on the given URL.
The algorithm works as follows:
- The system tries to unzip the contents by the given URL if it's gzipped
- Then the system tries to decode HTML using UTF-8 decoder
- If failed, then it tries to use CP1251 decoder. If it's failed then KOI8-R, and finally tries UTF-8 decoder and replaces unpleasant symbols
- On the last step the system calculates the occurrences of cyrillic symbols: line + cyrillic character position(s)
You can try checking URLS using browser address bar:
or just typing in the URL on the Home
The service has a simple API request for those who do not like GUI. Detect cyrillic symbols just using
request. It returns a JSON object with occurrences line by line.
