Build Status

The structure of the generated JSON is meant to be close to idiomatic JSON. This means:

  • Enumerations are converted to JSON strings.

  • Record fields become JSON keys.

  • Data types with one unlabeled field convert to just that field.

  • Data types with multiple unlabeled fields become arrays.

  • Multiple constructors are represented by keys.

  • 'Maybe' values are either an absent key, or the value.

See tests/Main.hs for more examples.
