If you have JSON objects with datetime attributes that you want to decode to python datetime objects, you can use decode_datetime as a simplejson object hook. simplejson.loads(s, object_hook=decode_datetime).

import dateutil.parser

def decode_datetime(obj):
	if 'datetime' not in obj:
		return obj
	
	dt = dateutil.parser.parse(obj['datetime'])
	obj['datetime'] = dt
	return obj

If you have datetime objects as "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S", then you don't need to convert them. Django will allow for using these in queries, and saving to the database.

Same with date ("%Y-%m-%d") and time ("%H:%M:%S") objects.
