ResourceIndexedAttributeSerializer (SerializerInterface)

Serialize and deserialize ResourceIndexedAttribute and ResourceIndexedAttribute[T] into PJSONType.

A ResourceIndexedAttributes instance can contain a Callable, which is hard to serialize. However, we can recover this ResourceIndexedAttributes instance if we know its attributes_owner and its name, both being easy to serialize.

obj_to_pjson(self, obj, type_hint)

Serialize the object to PJSON. Note that the generic self._service.to_pjson can be used here.

Source code in ofrak/service/serialization/serializers/
def obj_to_pjson(self, obj: Any, type_hint: Any) -> Dict[str, PJSONType]:
    if obj.attributes_owner is None:
        raise TypeError(f"Cannot serialize {obj.__name__} because its owner has not been set.")
        return {
            "attributes_owner": self._service.to_pjson(
                obj.attributes_owner, Type[ResourceAttributes]
            "name": obj.index_name,

pjson_to_obj(self, pjson_obj, type_hint)

Deserialize PJSON into the object. Note that the generic self._service.from_pjson can be used here.

Source code in ofrak/service/serialization/serializers/
def pjson_to_obj(self, pjson_obj: Dict[str, PJSONType], type_hint: Any) -> "ResourceIndexedAttribute":  # type: ignore
    attributes_owner = self._service.from_pjson(
        pjson_obj["attributes_owner"], Type[ResourceAttributes]
    name = self._service.from_pjson(pjson_obj["name"], str)
    return getattr(attributes_owner, name)
