JSON serializer suited for REST apis developed with BottlePy

Project description


Simple serializers for REST APIs built using BottlePy

Default Python serializers don't work when your dicts/objects contains datetime or Decimal instances. This plugin is meant to fix this "issue".

  • datetime instances will be converted to ISO8601 strings.
  • Decimal instances will be converted to float.


bottle-rest-serializer is available from PyPI as bottle-rest-serializer:

pip install bottle-rest-serializer

JSON Serializer:

from datetime import datetime
from decimal import Decimal

from bottle import Bottle, run
from truckpad.bottle.rest_serializer import FlexibleJSONPlugin

app = Bottle()

def index():
    return {
        'float_number': Decimal(123.4567),
        'int_number': Decimal(4567)

if __name__ == '__main__':

XML Serializer:

To be developed in the future :P
