JSON encoder that aims to be fully compliant with specifications ECMA-262 and ECMA-404.

Project description

JSON encoder fully compliant with the ECMA-262 and ECMA-404 specifications.


Support for all objects that the Python stdlib’s json.JSONEncoder can encode, plus:

  • datetime.datetime
  • datetime.time
  • decimal.Decimal

Works on Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3. Probably works on 3.4 and 3.5 but I haven’t set up tests for those with Tox yet.


Use StandardJSONEncoder as you would use json.JSONEncoder from the Python standard library:

>>> import datetime
>>> import json
>>> from standardjson import StandardJSONEncoder

>>> json.dumps({'day':, 2, 17)}, cls=StandardJSONEncoder)
'{"day": "2010-02-17"}'
