#18022 closed Bug (fixed)

Django 1.4 never uses python's standard json module

Severity: Normal Keywords:

The problem is that an overly zealous except clause masks a NameError that always gets raised.

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Accepted

Just waiting confirmation by another core dev before committing in 1.4.X branch.

I may have been mistaken. The __version__ = json.__version__ line definitely used to cause a NameError and there's no way __version__ was set successfully, but that doesn't happen until after everything from json is loaded and use_system_version is set. It looks like __version__ never gets set, and the fix in #17018 never accomplished anything, but you do end up getting the rest of standard library json as expected.

Still worth merging to get the correct __version__ but it's not particularly critical.

Fixed #18022 -- Fixed import of standalone Python 'json' module.

Thanks Clueless for the report and initial patch.

Refs #17071, r17018.

IMHO, this fix is useful mainly for the 1.4.X branch, as in 1.5 this will probably get a much more serious refactoring (#18023).
