EDN format reader and writer in Python

Project description


Implements the EDN format in Python.

All features of EDN are implemented, including custom tagged elements.

Build Status PyPI version


pip install edn_format


>>> import edn_format
>>> edn_format.dumps({1, 2, 3})
'#{1 2 3}'
>>> edn_format.loads("[1 true nil]")
[1, True, None]
>>> edn_format.loads_all("1 2 3 4")
[1, 2, 3, 4]

In general, edn_format.loads(edn_format.dumps(obj)) == obj. If this is false, it may be a bug.

See for full details.


Special thanks to the following contributors for making this library usable:


Why immutable list & dict?

IIRC, it was related to :

edn will yield distinct object identities when read, unless a reader implementation goes out of its way to make such a promise. Thus the resulting values should be considered immutable, and a reader implementation should yield values that ensure this, to the extent possible.
