MessagePack for Rails Build Status

The Rails way to serialize/deserialize objects with Message Pack. It implements the ActiveSupport encoder & decoder and the ActiveModel serializer for Message Pack.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'msgpack_rails'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install msgpack_rails

Usage

msgpack_rails converts data type using as_json before feeding it into msgpack. Here are a few examples:

$ ActiveSupport::MessagePack.encode(:a => :b)
=> "\x81\xA1a\xA1b"

$ ActiveSupport::MessagePack.encode(Time.now)
=> "\xB92013-09-11T10:40:39-07:00"

$ Time.now.as_msgpack
=> "2013-09-11T10:48:13-07:00"

$ Time.now.to_msgpack
=> "\xB92013-09-11T10:40:39-07:00"

$ ActiveSupport::MessagePack.decode Time.now.to_msgpack
=> "2013-09-11T11:23:07-07:00"

# After setting ActiveSupport.parse_msgpack_times to true
$ ActiveSupport::MessagePack.decode Time.now.to_msgpack
=> Wed, 11 Sep 2013 11:25:18 -0700

You can also use it as part of ActiveModel, similar to to_json:

class Contact
  include ActiveModel::Serializers::MessagePack

  ...
end

@contact = Contact.new
@contact.name = 'Owen Ou'
@contact.age = 28
@contact.created_at = Time.utc(2006, 8, 1)
@contact.awesome = true
@contact.preferences = { 'shows' => 'anime' }

@contact.to_msgpack                # => msgpack output
@contact.to_msgpack(:root => true) # => include root in msgpack output
