So in order to get a feel for the Wunderkind in tech land, I set up a simple demo of an emitter and a consuming backend using MsgPack.

A backend serializes a tiny and a huge Ruby Hash using MsgPack. The generated code is then sent over the internets (it’s someone’s localhost, mine 🤫) to the requesting program, which is a simple NodeJS script https-requesting the MsgPack payload.

You can check out the projet on github!

Spoiler: gzipped json is good enough
