JSON encoder fully compliant with ECMA-262 specification.

Project Description

JSON encoder fully compliant with ECMA-262 specification.


Support for all objects that the Python stdlib’s json.JSONEncoder can encode, plus:

  • datetime.datetime
  • datetime.time
  • decimal.Decimal

Works on Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3. Probably works on 3.4 and 3.5 but I haven’t set up tests for those with Tox yet.


Use JSON262Encoder as you would use json.JSONEncoder from the Python standard library:

>>> import datetime
>>> import json
>>> from json262 import JSON262Encoder

>>> json.dumps({'day':, 2, 17)}, cls=JSON262Encoder)
'{"day": "2010-02-17"}'


0.2.0 (2014-05-20)

  • Full implementation with tests.
  • Separate encoders module for encoder functions.
  • Bump to Alpha.

0.1.0 (2014-05-18)

  • First release on PyPI.
