[New-bugs-announce] [issue34393] json.dumps - allow compression

liad report at bugs.python.org

New submission from liad <liad at mailinator.com>:

The list of arguments of json.dump() can be seen here: https://docs.python.org/2/library/json.html

Notice that there is no way to make compression.

For example pandas allows you to do:
        df.to_csv(path_or_buf=file_name, index=False, encoding='utf-8',

I want to be able to compress when I do:
    with open('products.json', 'w') as outfile:
        json.dump(data, outfile, sort_keys=True)

Please add the ability to compress using json.dump()
