Module documentation for 0.2

There are no documented modules for this package.

This package allows you to automatically derive hxt picklers (conversions to and from xml) using the regular generics package.

A simple example:

{-# LANGUAGE TemplateHaskell
           , EmptyDataDecls
           , TypeFamilies

import Generics.Regular (deriveAll, PF)
import Text.XML.HXT.Arrow.Pickle (XmlPickler (..))
import Generics.Regular.XmlPickler (gxpickle)

data User = User
  { name  :: String
  , admin :: Bool

-- Derive Regular instance.
deriveAll ''User "PFUser"
type instance PF User = PFUser

-- Define generic pickler instance.
instance XmlPickler User where
  xpickle = gxpickle

Now you can use the functionality from Text.XML.HXT.Arrow.Pickle. For example:

> showPickled [] (User "Simon" True)


> unpickleDoc xpickle $ head $ xread "<user><name>Simon</name><admin>true</admin></user>" :: Maybe User

Just (User {name = "Simon", admin = True})
