Well-structured helpers to help serializing commonly encountered structures to JSON (like datetime, to_dict(), etc.
jsonext makes it easy to serialize objects outside of the standard Python primitives to JSON:
>>> import jsonext >>> from datetime import datetime >>> jsonext.dumps(datetime.now()) '"2014-03-22T22:17:18.304528+00:00"' >>> jsonext.dumps(i**2 for i in range(10)) '[0, 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, 81]'
It uses mixins to the standard encoder to achieve this and is easily reuse- and extensible. Check out the documentation for details.
