JSON Extended

Build Status Coverage Status PyPI

A module to extend the python json package functionality:

  • Treat a directory structure like a nested dictionary
  • Lightweight plugin system: define bespoke classes for parsing different file extensions (in-the-box: .json, .csv, .hdf5) and encoding/decoding objects.
  • Lazy Loading: read files only when they are indexed into
  • Tab Completion: index as tabs for quick exploration of data
  • Manipulation of nested structures, including; filter, merge, diff, flatten, unflatten
  • Enhanced pretty printer
  • Output to directory structure (of n folder levels)
  • On-disk indexing option for large json files (using the ijson package)
  • Units schema concept to apply and convert physical quantities (using the pint package)
  • All functions are thoroughly documented with tested examples.
