Native Haskell implementation of Avro
This is a Haskell Avro library useful for decoding and encoding Avro data structures. Avro can be thought of as a serialization format and RPC specification which induces three separable tasks:
- Deserialization - This library has been used "in anger" for deserialization of avro container files and should suffice for general needs.
- Serialization - Encoding routines exist and have seen some use, but much less than the deserialization path. Finding a good serialization API is harder in general because it involves zipping up two otherwise unrelated structures (the actual ADT and the Avro Schema).
- RPC - There is currently no support for Avro RPC in this library.
