Convert many serialization formats to many formats

Project description Documentation Status

Convert many serialization formats to many formats


Install CLI bundled with base package

Comes with just JSON and Pickle serializers by default, no external dependencies

pip install roundhouse

Install one or more additional serializers and their dependencies

pip install roundhouse[yaml] roundhouse[msgpack] ...

Or install all builtin serializers and dependencies bundled with core package

pip install roundhouse[all]

Additional serializer plugins can be published and installed via pypi/pip using the roundhouse setuptools entrypoint pointing to module/package containing additional serializer classes



The rh CLI command is installed automatically, and defaults to reading from stdin and writing stdout

Run rh --help for full usage instructions

echo '{"root": {"nested": {"key": "value"}}}' | rh -i json -o xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>


Data is serialized/deserialized to and from dict instances

Other data types may be supported depending on the serializer

Use the roundhouse.serialize and roundhouse.deserialize functions with target format

from roundhouse import serialize, deserialize

data = deserialize('{"root": {"nested": {"key": "value"}}}', 'json')
print(serialize(data, 'xml'))
