Convert Python list of objects to JSON example

A simple example codes a dump method in your object and uses it when sending things to json module:

import json

class IpPort:
    def __init__(self, ip, port, status):
        self.ip = ip
        self.port = port
        self.status = status

    def dump(self):
        return {"IpPortList": {'ip': self.ip,
                               'port': self.port,
                               'status': self.status}}

li = list()

i1 = IpPort("kk", 12, "w")
i2 = IpPort("kk", 15, "s")


res = json.dumps([o.dump() for o in li], indent=3)
