son – Tools for working with SON, an ordered mapping

Tools for creating and manipulating SON, the Serialized Ocument Notation.

Regular dictionaries can be used instead of SON objects, but not when the order of keys is important. A SON object can be used just like a normal Python dictionary.

class bson.son.SON(data=None, **kwargs)

SON data.

A subclass of dict that maintains ordering of keys and provides a few extra niceties for dealing with SON. SON provides an API similar to collections.OrderedDict from Python 2.7+.


Convert a SON document to a normal Python dictionary instance.

This is trickier than just dict(…) because it needs to be recursive.
