Not So Simple JSON encoder/decoder
nssjson is a (not so) simple, fast, complete, correct and extensible JSON <http://json.org> encoder and decoder for Python 2.5+ and Python 3.3+. It is pure Python code with no dependencies, but includes an optional C extension for a serious speed boost.
nssjson is a fork of simplejson that fulfills my need of having a good performance JSON encoder/decoder able to handle also Python’s datetime, even if with an admittedly non-standard and faulty heuristic that was not considered within the scope of the original product.
Practically, the difference is that, out of the box, you have:
>>> import datetime >>> import nssjson >>> now = datetime.datetime.now() >>> nssjson.loads(nssjson.dumps(now, iso_datetime=True), iso_datetime=True) == now True
- Update version in nssjson/__init__.py at release time
- Catch negative index parameter to the C scan_once() function, mimicking http://hg.python.org/cpython/rev/ef52ae167555
- Remove dead code noticed by Anatoly Techtonik
- Use an interned instance of the UTC timezone instead of passing it as an argument to function/constructors
- Fork of simplejson 3.3.3
- Add support for Python datetimes, dates and times (see https://github.com/simplejson/simplejson/issues/86 and https://github.com/simplejson/simplejson/pull/89)
- Fix compatibility with Python 3.4 unittests
