https://gitlab.com/preserves/preserves https://gitlab.com/preserves/preserves/tree/main Preserves: an Expressive Data Language true

This repository contains a proposal and various implementations of Preserves, a new data model and serialization format in many ways comparable to JSON, XML, S-expressions, CBOR, ASN.1 BER, and so on.

WARNING Everything in this repository is experimental and in flux! The design of Preserves is not finalised and may change drastically. Please offer any feedback you may have with this in mind.
