:target: https://travis-ci.org/PawelTroka/ultrajson-x?branch=legacy

UltraJSON-x-legacy is an ultra fast JSON encoder and decoder written in pure C with bindings for Python 2.5+ and 3.

For a more painless day to day C/C++ JSON decoder experience please checkout ujson4c_, based on UltraJSON.

.. _ujson4c: http://github.com/esnme/ujson4c/

| Please checkout the rest of the projects in the Ultra series:

| http://github.com/esnme/ultramysql

To install it just run Pip as usual::

$ pip install ujson-x-legacy

============
Usage
============
May be used as a drop in replacement for most other JSON parsers for Python::

>>> import ujson
>>> ujson.dumps([{"key": "value"}, 81, True])
'[{"key":"value"},81,true]'
>>> ujson.loads("""[{"key": "value"}, 81, true]""")
[{u'key': u'value'}, 81, True]

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Encoder options
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
encode_html_chars
-----------------
Used to enable special encoding of "unsafe" HTML characters into safer Unicode sequences. Default is false::

>>> ujson.dumps("<script>John&Doe", encode_html_chars=True)
'"\\u003cscript\\u003eJohn\\u0026Doe"'

ensure_ascii
-------------
Limits output to ASCII and escapes all extended characters above 127. Default is true. If your end format supports UTF-8 setting this option to false is highly recommended to save space::

>>> ujson.dumps(u"\xe5\xe4\xf6")
'"\\u00e5\\u00e4\\u00f6"'
>>> ujson.dumps(u"\xe5\xe4\xf6", ensure_ascii=False)
'"\xc3\xa5\xc3\xa4\xc3\xb6"'

double_precision
----------------
Controls how many decimals to encode for double or decimal values. Default is 9::

>>> ujson.dumps(math.pi)
'3.1415926536'
>>> ujson.dumps(math.pi, double_precision=1)
'3.1'
>>> ujson.dumps(math.pi, double_precision=0)
'3'
>>> ujson.dumps(math.pi, double_precision=4)
'3.1416'

escape_forward_slashes
----------------------
Controls whether forward slashes (``/``) are escaped. Default is True::

>>> ujson.dumps("http://esn.me")
'"http:\/\/esn.me"'
>>> ujson.dumps("http://esn.me", escape_forward_slashes=False)
'"http://esn.me"'

indent
----------------------
Controls whether indention ("pretty output") is enabled. Default is 0 (disabled)::

>>> ujson.dumps({"foo": "bar"})
'{"foo":"bar"}'
>>> ujson.dumps({"foo": "bar"}, indent=4)
{
"foo":"bar"
}

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Decoders options
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
precise_float
-------------
Set to enable usage of higher precision (strtod) function when decoding string to double values. Default is to use fast but less precise builtin functionality::

>>> ujson.loads("4.56")
4.5600000000000005
>>> ujson.loads("4.56", precise_float=True)
4.5599999999999996
