    SPOS stands for Small Payload Object Serializer.

    This is and implementation of the SPOS specification in Javascript. See HTTPS://github.com/luxedo/SPOS for details.

    SPOS is a tool for serializing simple objects. This tool focuses in maintaining a consistent payload size while sacrificing precision. Applications with limited bandwidth like LoRa or Globalstar are ideal candidates for SPOS. SPOS has implementations for python3 (SPOS) and node.js (node-SPOS).

    In this document we will be using JSON notation to describe payload specifications and payload data. For each programming language there's usually an analogous data type for each notation. Eg: object <=> dict, array <=> list, etc.

    Quick Start

    To encode data, SPOS needs two arguments to serialize the data: The payload_data to be serialized and the payload specification.

    const spos = require("spos")
    payload_spec = {
      name: "example payload",
      version: 1,
      body: [{
        type: "integer",
        key: "constant_data",
        value: 2,      // 10
        bits: 2
      }, {
        type: "integer",
        key: "int_data",
        bits: 6
      }, {
        type: "float",
        key: "float_data",
        bits: 6
    }]
    payload_data = {
      int_data: 13,    // 001101
      float_data: 0.6  // 010011 (19/32 or 0.59375)
                       // padding 000
    }
    message = spos.binEncode(payload_data, payload_spec, output="bin")
    "1000110110011000"

    Decoding data

    const spos = require("spos")
    const payload_spec = {
      name: "example payload",
      version: 1,
      body: [{
        type: "integer",
        key: "constant_data",
        value: 2,
        bits: 2
      }, {
        type: "integer",
        key: "int_data",
        bits: 6
      }, {
        type: "float",
        key: "float_data",
        bits: 6
    }]
    const message = "1000110110011000"
    const decoded = spos.decode(message, payload_spec, input="bin")
    decoded
    {
      meta: {
        name: "example payload",
        version: 1,
      },
      body: {
        constant_data: 2,
        int_data: 13,
        float_data: 0.59375
      }
    }
