attrs-serde

A serialization addon for attrs.

person_dict = {"contact": {"personal": {"name": "John"}, "phone": "555-112233"}}

name_path = ["contact", "personal", "name"]
phone_path = ["contact", "phone"]

@serde
@attrs
class Person(object):
    name = attrib(metadata={"to": name_path, "from": name_path})
    phone = attrib(metadata={"to": phone_path, "from": phone_path})

>>> p = Person.from_dict(person_dict)
Person(name=John phone=555-112233)

>>> p.to_dict
{"contact": {"personal": {"name": "John"}, "phone": "555-112233"}}

Quick Start

Install using pip/pipenv/etc. (we recommend poetry for sane dependency management):

$ poetry add attrs-serde

Decorate with serde for automatic to_dict and from_dict. Provide paths in metadata:

  1. from - path to fetch field value from
  2. to - path to serialize value into (creates nested dictionaries as needed)

Example:

from attrs_serde import serde
from attr import attrs, attrib
@serde
@attrs
class Person(object):
    name = attrib(metadata={"to": name_path, "from": name_path})
    phone = attrib(metadata={"to": phone_path, "from": phone_path})

Custom from and to keys (in case you or a different extension use those):

from attrs_serde import serde
from attr import attrs, attrib
@serde(from_key="get", to_key="set")
@attrs
class Person(object):
    name = attrib(metadata={"get": name_path, "set": name_path})
    phone = attrib(metadata={"get": phone_path, "set": phone_path})

Performance

attrs-serde works with cytoolz (mostly C implementation) and so presents very low overhead over what attrs already does.

Against manual object construction:
