JSON API to document parser

Project description

https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/json-api-doc.svg https://img.shields.io/travis/noplay/json-api-doc.svg Documentation Status Updates

This library provides ability to transform between normalized JSON API (http://jsonapi.org/) documents and denormalized Python dictionary object for easier manipulation in code. Also available as a command line utility and Python 3 module.

Deserialization

For this JSON API document:

{
  "data": [{
    "type": "articles",
    "id": "1",
    "attributes": {
      "title": "JSON API paints my bikeshed!",
      "body": "The shortest article. Ever.",
      "created": "2015-05-22T14:56:29.000Z",
      "updated": "2015-05-22T14:56:28.000Z"
    },
    "relationships": {
      "author": {
        "data": {"id": "42", "type": "people"}
      }
    }
  }],
  "included": [
    {
      "type": "people",
      "id": "42",
      "attributes": {
        "name": "John",
        "age": 80,
        "gender": "male"
      }
    }
  ]
}

The simplified version will be:

[
    {
        "type": "articles",
        "id": "1",
        "title": "JSON API paints my bikeshed!",
        "body": "The shortest article. Ever.",
        "created": "2015-05-22T14:56:29.000Z",
        "updated": "2015-05-22T14:56:28.000Z",
        "author": {
            "type": "people",
            "id": "42",
            "name": "John",
            "age": 80,
            "gender": "male"
        }
    }
]

Serialization

To turn an dict into JSON API specification document the root of your object must contain a $type key with a value corresponding to the name of the object’s resource type. Any sub-dict or sub-array of dicts that also contain a $type key will be considered an included documents and serialized accordingly.

[
    {
        "$type": "articles",
        "id": "1",
        "title": "JSON API paints my bikeshed!",
        "body": "The shortest article. Ever.",
        "created": "2015-05-22T14:56:29.000Z",
        "updated": "2015-05-22T14:56:28.000Z",
        "author": {
            "$type": "people",
            "id": "42",
            "name": "John",
            "age": 80,
            "gender": "male"
        }
    }
]
{
  "data": [{
    "type": "articles",
    "id": "1",
    "attributes": {
      "title": "JSON API paints my bikeshed!",
      "body": "The shortest article. Ever.",
      "created": "2015-05-22T14:56:29.000Z",
      "updated": "2015-05-22T14:56:28.000Z"
    },
    "relationships": {
      "author": {
        "data": {"id": "42", "type": "people"}
      }
    }
  }],
  "included": [
    {
      "type": "people",
      "id": "42",
      "attributes": {
        "name": "John",
        "age": 80,
        "gender": "male"
      }
    }
  ]
}

Usage as python module

import json_api_doc

document =  {
    'data': {
        'type': 'article',
        'id': '1',
        'attributes': {
            'name': 'Article 1'
        }
    }
}
json_api_doc.deserialize(document)
import json_api_doc

document =  {
  '$type': 'article',
  'id': '1',
  'name': 'Article 1'
}
json_api_doc.serialize(document)

Usage as cli
