Since there's no standard for this in json, deciding to serialize to str is quite arbitrary.
I personally serialize UUIDs to binary data as it takes less space.
Some serialize it to hexadecimal.
Tbh, it sounds like a good idea but can have it's pitfalls.

I understand, do you think the python standard library should provide a JSONEncoder and JSONDecoder that supports python standard library objects ?
It would be optional to use, but if you use it then any object from the python standard library will just work. _______________________________________________ Python-ideas mailing list -- firstname.lastname@example.org To unsubscribe send an email to email@example.com https://mail.python.org/mailman3/lists/python-ideas.python.org/ Message archived at https://firstname.lastname@example.org/message/C3IW6R...
