DSON encoder/decoder for Python

What is Dogeon?

Dogeon is a simple, fast, complete, correct and extensible DSON https://dogeon.xyz/ encoder and decoder for Python. It is pure Python code with no dependencies.

The encoder can be specialized to provide serialization in any kind of situation, without any special support by the objects to be serialized (somewhat like pickle). This is best done with the default kwarg to the dson.dumps() function.

The decoder can handle incoming DSON strings of any specified encoding (UTF-8 by default). It can also be specialized to post-process DSON objects with the object_hook or object_pairs_hook kwargs.

Dogeon Support:

  • Python 2.7
  • Python 3.3
  • Python 3.4
  • PyPy

How to install Dogeon?

$ pip install Dogeon

How to use Dogeon?

It uses the exact same API as the standard json library.

In [1]: import dson

In [2]: dson.loads('such "foo" is "bar". "doge" is "shibe" wow')
Out[2]: {u'doge': u'shibe', u'foo': u'bar'}

In [3]: dson.dumps({"foo": "bar", "doge": "shibe"})
Out[3]: 'such "doge" is "shibe", "foo" is "bar" wow'

Note

While DSON allows ,.!? as member separators, Dogeon by default uses , as a member seperator for dumps.

Also, while DSON allows and, also as object element separators, Dogeon by default uses and as an element separator.
