bitser

bitser is a serialization library for LuaJIT. It's very fast, produces tiny output and safely handles untrusted input.

local bitser = require 'bitser'
 
bitser.register('someResource', someResource)
bitser.registerClass(SomeClass)
 
serializedString = bitser.dumps(someValue)
someValue = bitser.loads(serializedString)
love.filesystem.write("filename", serializedString)
serializedData = love.filesystem.newFileData("filename")
someValue = bitser.loadData(serializedData:getPointer(), serializedData:getSize())
