Attempts to correctly deserialize objects that json decoder cannot.

Project description


Attempts to deserialize objects into a format that json.dumps/json.loads can use.

  • Anything that is a Sequence, but not a str will be cast to a list.
  • All Mappings will be cast to dicts
  • Decimal to floats
  • Callable to string (will return Object.repr)
  • NamedTuple to dict

Usage Example

    >>> from json import dumps
    >>> from collections import UserDict
    >>> from json_deserializer import deserialize
    >>> class MyDict(UserDict):
    >>>     pass
    >>> d = MyDict({"foo": "bar"})
    >>> try:
    >>>    dumps(d)
    >>> except Exception as e:
    >>>    print(e)
    Object of type MyDict is not JSON serializable
    >>> dumps(d, default=deserialize)
    '{"foo": "bar"}'

You can also import dump, load, dumps, and loads directly from json_deserializer which will call json.loads, json.dumps with default=json_deserializer.deserialize.
