Encoder for the Siren hypermedia format

Project Description

Persefone is an encoder for the Siren hypermedia format that uses ujson to generate Siren-compliant JSON efficiently.

Usually such encoders work with JSON, so you convert your data to JSON and pass it to the encoder.

The idea behind persefone is to provide a perfomant Siren encoder by removing the JSON conversion step: you pass your data as provided by your ORM and persefone deals with that, returning JSON.

Supported orms and data structures

Persefone currently supports only peewee, but I plan to add support for other ORMs and similar tools.res


Install with pip:

pip install persefone


from persefone.peewee import Siren

Siren(data, '/path', model=MyModel).encode() # returns Siren-valid JSON

If you have a list:

Siren([item, ...], '/path', model=MyModel)


Siren([item, ...], '/path', model=MyModel, total_items=100, current_page=2)


Contributions and feedbacks are welcome. You can just open an issue.
