John Doe has released a library that uses reflection to automatically serialize data to and from .xnb files, removing the need to manually implement a ContentTypeWriter / ContentTypeReader pair.
Two things I want to say about this:
- It is really cool! The original Content Pipeline design actually included something similar to this, but we had to cut it in order to meet our ship date, and since then we’ve always had other higher priority things to work on. I would love it if we someday have time to build something along these lines directly into the framework.
- Do you think his name really is John Doe? That would be soo cool 🙂
