Makes it really easy to return JSON from your views: just return a dict.

(Also from django-webapp.)

from snippet 801 import JsonResponse
class JsonEncodingMiddleware(object):
    '''If a view returns a dict, encode it as JSON.

    This should be the last middleware in MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES.'''
    def process_response(self, request, response):
        if isinstance(response, dict):
            return JsonResponse(response)
        else:
            return response
