#Concise Binary Object Representation (CBOR) for D language Build Status

Supported features

  1. Encoding
  • integers - ubyte ushort uint ulong byte short int long;
  • floating numbers - float, double;
  • boolean - bool;
  • fixed length byte strings - ubyte[];
  • fixed length UTF-8 strings - string;
  • fixed length arrays aka tuples. Items can be of any type;
  • fixed length maps. Pairs of key/value of any type - K[V];
  • Aggregate encoding. Structs, tuples and classes - class, Tuple, struct. Can be encoded as both arrays and maps;
  • null values - null;
  • Tags;
  • Simple values
  1. Decoding
  • Integers;
  • Floats (half, float, double);
  • Arrays, maps, string, byte strings;
  • Aggregates can only be decoded from arrays now;
  • null values can be decoded as classes, arrays, maps, string;
  • All unused simple values will cause CborException to be thrown;
  • Streaming support (i.e. Indefinite-Length Arrays, Maps, Byte Strings and Text Strings)
  • Tags produce corresponding token.

Restrictions

  • While aggregates can be encoded as maps, they can not be decoded as such, only from arrays.

Usage example

	import cbor;

	static struct Inner
	{
		int[] array;
		string someText;
	}

	static struct Test
	{
		ubyte b;
		short s;
		uint i;
		long l;
		float f;
		double d;
		ubyte[] arr;
		string str;
		Inner inner;
		@ignore long ignored; // not encoded

		void fun(){} // not encoded
		void* pointer; // not encoded
		int* numPointer; // not encoded
	}

	import std.array : appender;
	auto buffer = appender!(ubyte[])();

	Test test = Test(42, -120, 111111, -123456789, 0.1234, -0.987654,
		cast(ubyte[])[1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8], "It is a test string",
		Inner([1,2,3,4,5], "Test of inner struct"), 88);

	encodeCbor(buffer, test);

	// ubyte[] and string types are slices of input ubyte[].
	Test result = decodeCborSingle!Test(buffer.data);
	// or
	// Test result;
	// decodeCbor(buffer.data, result);

	// decodeCborSingleDup can be used to auto-dup those types.

	assert(result.ignored == 0);
	result.ignored = test.ignored;
	assert(test == result);


	struct Vector4f
	{
		float x, y, z, w;
	}

	// encoded as array of 4 floats
	encodeCbor(buffer, Vector4f(1,2,3,4));
	buffer.clear();

	// Flat encoding
	// encoded as 4 floats
	encodeCbor!(Yes.Flatten)(buffer, Vector4f(1,2,3,4));

	// You need to use Yes.Flatten on both sides.
	decodeCborSingle!(Vector4f, Yes.Flatten)(buffer.data);

	// Printing cbor data (by default into stdout)
	printCborStream(buffer.data);
	// prints:
	// (floating, 1)
	// (floating, 2)
	// (floating, 3)
	// (floating, 4)

	// you can also use other sink
	auto textbuffer = appender!(char[])();
	printCborStream(buffer.data, textbuffer);
