simplejson 1.3


Simple JSON <> decoder

Performs the following translations in decoding:

JSON Python
object dict
array list
string unicode
number (int) int, long
number (real) float
true True
false False
null None

It also understands NaN, Infinity, and -Infinity as their corresponding float values, which is outside the JSON spec.


f __init__(self, encoding=None, object_hook=None) ...

encoding determines the encoding used to interpret any str objects decoded by this instance (utf-8 by default). It has no effect when decoding unicode objects.

Note that currently only encodings that are a superset of ASCII work, strings of other encodings should be passed in as unicode.

object_hook, if specified, will be called with the result of every JSON object decoded and its return value will be used in place of the given dict. This can be used to provide custom deserializations (e.g. to support JSON-RPC class hinting).

f decode(self, s, _w=<built-in method match of _sre.SRE_Pattern object at 0x11813c8>) ...

Return the Python representation of s (a str or unicode instance containing a JSON document)

f raw_decode(self, s) ...

Decode a JSON document from s (a str or unicode beginning with a JSON document) and return a 2-tuple of the Python representation and the index in s where the document ended.

This can be used to decode a JSON document from a string that may have extraneous data at the end.
