Completely rewritten from the ground up, switching from pybind11 (back) to Cython due to unacceptable overhead on function calls.
New project logo!
Typings (thanks kornicameister!)
Python 3.5 support has been removed (here we come f-strings!)
Official pypy3 support has been temporarily removed (due to memory safety concerns with PyPy’s delayed __del__). Still works if you build yourself and re-use the Parser with care. Are you a pypy expert? We could use your help!
Using as_buffer() will now always return a buffer typed as a flat array of bytes.
Array.slots() has been removed. As we prepare to support the simdjson On-Demand and future streaming API, details specific to the DOM API will be removed and/or abstracted.
Enforces the simdjson document lifecycle, preventing the unsafe usage of Object or Array when parsers are re-used.
Prevents Parser instances from going out of scope when an Object or Array
Python 3.6 support will be removed with the next major release, so that we can take advantage of new features in 3.7 (PEP 562, insert-order-dict, PEP 539) for future work.
