serialize
(include_class=True, save_dynamic=False, **kwargs)¶ Serializes a HasProperties instance to dictionary
This uses the Property serializers to serialize all Property values to a JSONcompatible dictionary. Properties that are undefined are not included. If the HasProperties instance contains a reference to itself, a
properties.SelfReferenceError
will be raised.Parameters:
include_class  If True (the default), the name of the class will also be saved to the serialized dictionary under key
'__class__'
save_dynamic  If True, dynamic properties are written to the serialized dict (default: False).
Any other keyword arguments will be passed through to the Property serializers.

This uses the Property deserializers to deserialize all JSONcompatible dictionary values into their corresponding Property values on a new instance of a HasProperties class. Extra keys in the dictionary that do not correspond to Properties will be ignored.
Parameters:
value  Dictionary to deserialize new instance from.
trusted  If True (and if the input dictionary has
