Serialise::Map
==============

Serialise::Map - a composable interface for serialising objects

SYNOPSIS
========

    use Serialise::Map;
    use Test;

    class Foo does Serialise::Map {
      has $.value;

      to-map( --> Map) {
        %(
          :$!value
        )
      }

      from-map(Map $map --> Foo) {
        self.new(|$map)
      }
    }

    my $obj = Foo.new( :value('Bar') );

    # Test your implementations!
    is-deeply $obj.to-map, $obj.from-map($obj.to-map), "";

DESCRIPTION
===========

Serialise::Map is a simple interface that specifies a simple contract. I can give you a map, which represents my current state and consume a map to recreate my current state. Although round trip safe behaviour is not guaranteed it is probably expected so it is recommended for your users to keep this in mind.
