nssjson 0.4

Not So Simple JSON encoder/decoder

Latest Version: 0.7

nssjson is a (not so) simple, fast, complete, correct and extensible JSON <> encoder and decoder for Python 2.5+ and Python 3.3+. It is pure Python code with no dependencies, but includes an optional C extension for a serious speed boost.

nssjson is a fork of simplejson that fulfills my need of having a good performance JSON encoder/decoder able to handle also Python’s datetime, even if with an admittedly non-standard and faulty heuristic that was not considered within the scope of the original product.

Practically, the difference is that, out of the box, you have:

>>> import datetime
>>> import nssjson
>>> now =
>>> nssjson.loads(nssjson.dumps(now, iso_datetime=True), iso_datetime=True) == now


0.4 (2014-06-28)

0.2 (2014-03-22)

  • Remove dead code noticed by Anatoly Techtonik
