    Where To Use it

    Tested and works with browserify, so it's useful for packing and unpacking structures on the browser-side. It also works server-side in node processes. In either case, it finds the fastest buffer objects at its disposal to give you the best performance possible.

    API

    purepack.pack(obj,opts)

    Pack an object obj. Return a Buffer object.

    opts

    Options currently supported, off by default:

    • floats — Use floats rather than doubles when encoding. Useful when saving space
    • sort_keys - Sort the keys of maps on outputs, so that purepack output can be compared in hashes.
    • ext - An 'extensible-type' function.
    • no_str8 - Don't use 8-bit string encodings, to maintain compatibility with older msgpacks.

    purepack.unpack(buf,opts)

    Unpack a packed Buffer buf. Throws errors if there were underruns, or bad encodings.

    opts

    Currently support options are:

    • ext - An extensible-type function that given a [type,buf] tuple, returns an object. Can throw an error if needs be.
    • no_ext - If no ext option is given, we plug in a default, stupid-ish ext function. Supply this flag if you don't want that.

    Building

    Testing

    make setup
    make
    make test
    

    Testing will run a series of scripts on your machine using node. It also will ask you to visit a URL with whichever browsers you please to test purepack use via browserify and with your browser's buffer objects.
