Desert generates serialization schemas for dataclasses and attrs classes. Writing code that’s DRY (“don’t repeat yourself”) helps avoid bugs and improve readability. Desert helps you write code that’s DRY.

Installation

pip install desert

or with Poetry

poetry add desert

Usage

A simple example models two Person objects in a Car.

from dataclasses import dataclass

# Or using attrs
# from attr import dataclass

from typing import List

import desert

@dataclass
class Person:
    name: str
    age: int

@dataclass
class Car:
    passengers: List[Person]

# Load some simple data types.
data = {'passengers': [{'name': 'Alice', 'age': 21}, {'name': 'Bob', 'age': 22}]}


# Create a schema for the Car class.
schema = desert.schema(Car)

# Load the data.
car = schema.load(data)
assert car == Car(passengers=[Person(name='Alice', age=21), Person(name='Bob', age=22)])

Limitations

String annotations and forward references inside of functions are not supported.
