Implements encoding and decoding classes to/from bytes using CBOR specification. It is typically used by constructing an application-specific instance, with configured behaviour, and, if necessary, registered custom serializers (in SerializersModule provided by serializersModule constructor parameter).
Known caveats and limitations:
Supports reading collections of both definite and indefinite lengths; however, serialization always writes maps and lists as indefinite-length ones. Does not support optional tags representing datetime, bignums, etc. Fully support CBOR maps, which, unlike JSON ones, may contain keys of non-primitive types, and may produce such maps from corresponding Kotlin objects. However, other 3rd-party parsers (e.g.
jackson-dataformat-cbor) may not accept such maps.
specifies whether default values of Kotlin properties are encoded. False by default; meaning that properties with values equal to defaults will be elided.
specifies if unknown CBOR elements should be ignored (skipped) when decoding.
