jsonpickle is a library for the two-way conversion of complex Python objects and JSON. jsonpickle builds upon the existing JSON encoders, such as simplejson, json, and demjson.

Numpy Support

jsonpickle includes a built-in numpy extension. If would like to encode sklearn models, numpy arrays, and other numpy-based data then you must enable the numpy extension by registering its handlers:

>>> import jsonpickle.ext.numpy as jsonpickle_numpy
>>> jsonpickle_numpy.register_handlers()


jsonpickleJS is a javascript implementation of jsonpickle by Michael Scott Cuthbert. jsonpickleJS can be extremely useful for projects that have parallel data structures between Python and Javascript.
