    SuperPack (JS)

    About

    This module provides a transcoder for the SuperPack binary encoding format.

    Status

    Experimental.

    Installation

    npm install superpack

    Usage

    import {encode, decode} from "superpack";
    let payload = encode(/* your SuperPack-serialisable value */);
    let reconstructedValue = decode(payload);

    Extensions

    encode and decode take a second argument which is an options bag. It allows specifying extensions as follows:

    encode(data, {
      extensions: {
        [extensionPoint]: {
          detector: value => false,
          serialiser: value => serialize(value),
          deserialiser: serializedValue => deserialise(serializedValue),
        }
      }
    });

    where extensionPoint is a number. The decoder must have the same extensions at the same extension points.

    Depth bound extension

    This implementation includes a built-in extension which allows bounding the depth of object / array nesting. Once reached, a sentinel value is emitted instead. It is used as

    import {encode, decode, depthBoundExtension, depthBoundReached} from "superpack";
    let encoded = encode({ data: [0, { x: 'a' }] }, {
      depthBound: 2,
      extensions: {
        [0xDEADBEEF]: depthBoundExtension
      }
    });
    let decoded = decode(encoded, {
      extensions: {
        [0xDEADBEEF]: depthBoundExtension
      }
    });
    console.log(decoded); // { data: [ 0, {} ] }
    assert(decoded.data[1] === depthBoundReached);
