UJSONResponse class

esmerald.responses.encoders.UJSONResponse

UJSONResponse(content, status_code=status.HTTP_200_OK, headers=None, media_type=None, background=None, encoders=None)

Bases: BaseJSONResponse

An alternative to JSONResponse and performance wise, faster.

In the same way the JSONResponse is used, so is the UJSONResponse.
