s11n is here to Save Our Data, man!
Project powered by:
What people have said about s11n:
(well, some of the nice things, anyway ;)
As s11n's author, i obviously have a lot to say about the library. That's all fine and good,
but what really counts is what other people have to say about it...
My heartfelt thanks to those of you who have taken the time
to feed back your thoughts on s11n!
- Rob Stoddard says: "I was starting to think that the OO crowd was hopeless, but S11n offers a good deal more than a shred of hope."
- Tero Laitinen, author of LiteSQL,
writes, "s11n seems to (de)serialize just about everything and to/from anything.
This genericity allows a huge range of uses."
- Roger Leigh, a coder on the
Gimp printer plugins project,
writes, regarding class_loader:
"... it's a great idea ... relying on object construction
at module load time to do the registration is a (really cool!)
- Ton Oguara, a student at the University of Birmingham (UK), writes:
"I am working on a project that requires serialization of STL Objects,
User-defined Type Objects and deeply nested objects ... I browsed
through the net and discovered [s11n] ... You ROCK ...
[s11n] is the only non-client and non-intrusive on client code
C++ serialization library I have ever seen."
(The unfortunate part is, Ton was commenting on 0.6.x, which
was utter, useless crap compared to 0.9+.)
- Gary Boone, who got a preview of 0.7.0 before it came out,
flatters me with: "Your progress is AMAZING!!! ...
So you can see why I'm excited about what you're working on... In fact,
if I hadn't found s11nlite, I would have given up by now on
serialization. There was no way I was going to override
<< for everything in my system."
Gary also writes:
"Dude, it works!! That's amazing! That's huge, allowing you to code
serialization into your projects without even touching other people's
code in distributed projects. It means you can experiment with the
library without having to hack/unhack your primary codebase."
- Max Hofer, from Austria, writes:
"i will keep a close eye on the library. the functionality is amazing. keep up
with your good work."
- Paul Balomiri, from Vienna, Austria, brings up an
interesting point about the small number of messages in the s11n-devel
"...your project *is* ... of mainstream interest and
has also the quality to serve mainstream. ... (I almost skipped your project
because you are the sender of >90% of the messages in the archive. -
and it would have cost me weeks of work :))"
Paul also writes this funny note:
"... I didn't trust you on the point about understanding
s11lite first (don't ask why, it was a mistake anyway)."
- Keven Weber says:
"I got both s11n and xparam working but prefer s11n.
For my simple requirements I found s11n simpler, easier (eventually)
and less intrusive."
(There's a long background story to that "eventually" part...)
- "Ashran", author of the Hackersquest
"Dude, you should try to make some money with that."
- Rob "Boppin' Bob" Huwar, from Houston, Texas:
"The fred mascot rocks, send my kudos to Fabio."
- Peter Angerani, my long-time friend and mentor, from Austin, Texas,
comments about the "Context Singletons" paper:
"The coverage is excellent... but you need to run it through
a spell checker."
- My mother says, about the library manual:
"I know nothing - repeat NOTHING - about C++, yet the documentation is clear
and understandable! It is a work of art!"
