Serializer

The main interface of this library is Amp\Serialization\Serializer.

<?php

namespace Amp\Serialization;

interface Serializer
{
    /**
     * @param mixed $data
     *
     * @throws SerializationException
     */
    public function serialize($data): string;

    /**
     * @return mixed
     *
     * @throws SerializationException
     */
    public function unserialize(string $data);
}

JSON

JSON serialization can be used with the JsonSerializer.

Native Serialization

Native serialization (serialize / unserialize) can be used with the NativeSerializer.

Passthrough Serialization

Sometimes you already have a string and don’t want to apply additional serialization. In these cases, you can use the PassthroughSerializer.

Compression

Often, serialized data can be compressed quite well. If you don’t need interoperability with other systems deserializing the data, you can compress your serialized payloads by wrapping your Serializer instance in an CompressingSerializer.
