Django Rest Framework UJSON Renderer

Build Status

Django Rest Framework renderer using ujson

Installation

pip install drf_ujson

You can then set the UJSONRenderer class as your default renderer in your settings.py

REST_FRAMEWORK = {
    'DEFAULT_RENDERER_CLASSES': (
        'drf_ujson.renderers.UJSONRenderer',
    ),
    ...
}

Also you can set the UJSONParser class as your default parser in your settings.py

REST_FRAMEWORK = {
    'DEFAULT_PARSER_CLASSES': (
        'drf_ujson.parsers.UJSONParser',
    ),
    ...
}

Benchmarks

This is on average 2.3x faster than the default JSON Serializer.

import timeit

setup = '''
from proposals.models import Proposal
from proposals.serializers import ProposalSerializer
from rest_framework.renderers import JSONRenderer
from drf_ujson.renderers import UJSONRenderer

proposals = Proposal.objects.all()
serialized = ProposalSerializer(proposals, many=True).data
'''

stdlib_test = '''
JSONRenderer().render(serialized)
'''

ujson_test = '''
UJSONRenderer().render(serialized)
'''

stdlib_result = timeit.repeat(stdlib_test, setup=setup, number=1, repeat=10)
ujson_result = timeit.repeat(ujson_test, setup=setup, number=1, repeat=10)

print stdlib_result
print sum(stdlib_result) / 10
print ujson_result
print sum(ujson_result) / 10
