RON aims to be a superior alternative to JSON/YAML/TOML/etc, while having consistent format and simple rules. RON is a pleasure to read and write, especially if you have 5+ years of Rust experience. It has support for structures, enums, tuples, homogeneous maps and lists, comments, and even trailing commas!
We are happy to announce the release of RON library version 0.1. The implementation uses
serde for convenient (de-)serialization of your precious data. It has already been accepted as the configuration format for Amethyst engine. And we are just getting started ;)
RON has been designed a few years ago, to be used for a game no longer in development. The idea rested peacefully until one shiny day torkleyy noticed the project and brought it to life. Now the library is perfectly usable and solves the question of readable data format for all of my future projects, and I hope - yours too!
