binary-derive

Automatic deriving of Binary using GHC.Generics

Latest on Hackage:0.1.0

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

This package provides deriveGet and derivePut which can be used to quickly create an instance of Binary for any time which implements Generic. Naturally, this can be used with -XDeriveGeneric to not have to write any boilerplate code. This differs from binary-generic which relies on the Data class instead and doesn't seem to have quite the same implementation philosophy. Once Ghc 7.2 is stable, this could be combined into the binary package to provide a sensible default for the Binary class.
