JSON with datetime support

Project description

Sick of rewriting the same JSON datetime handling code for each project? jsondate is a drop-in replacement for Python’s standard json library that adds sensible handling of datetime and date objects.

jsondate uses ISO8601 for encoding datetime objects and the date-specific part of ISO6801 for encoding date objects.

Example:

import datetime
import jsondate as json

>>> data = json.dumps(dict(created_at=datetime.datetime(2012, 10, 31)))
'{"created_at": "2012-10-31T00:00:00Z"}'

>>> json.loads(data)
{u'created_at': datetime.datetime(2012, 10, 31, 0, 0)}

>>> date = json.dumps(dict(date=datetime.date(2012, 10, 31)))
'{"date": "2012-10-31"}'

>>> json.loads(data)
{u'created_at': datetime.date(2012, 10, 31)}
