Data Serialization is a plugin that will provide support to serialize (aka stringify) and deserialize (aka parse) data in multiple formats. This is useful for storing information on disk or in the cloud. Once you've retrieved that information (i.e. by loading a file to a string), the Data Serialization plugin will help you parse the data to be interactable. The plugin eventually will also create the strings for you from blueprint data.


Data Serialization currently only supports parsing CSV strings; more features are coming soon!
