  • ultrajson

    Ultra fast JSON decoder and encoder written in C with Python bindings

    For most cases, you would want to go with python’s standard json library which removes dependencies on other libraries. On other hand you could try out ujsonwhich is simple replacement for python’s json library. If you want more speed and also want dataclass, datetime, numpy, and UUID instances and you are ready to deal with more complex code, then you can try your hands on orjson

  • orjson

    Fast, correct Python JSON library supporting dataclasses, datetimes, and numpy
