Utf8 vs utf8mb4

Documentation currently states to create a MySQL database
without precising the encoding. Can we assume that utf8mb4 would fit adequately (as for plain utf8)?

Hello @drzraf,

You can use utf-8mb4 , by default Cells will create a database with the default encoding, with MySQL if you create a database without specifying the encoding it will use the default one (which seems to be utf-8), but utf-8mb4 is also compatible.
