superserialize is an advanced serialization system, which allows you to serialize JavaScript objects, including their functions, into a JSON-compatible data structure. the JSON can then be sent across a socket, HTTP, or whatever you wish. Once the JSON has been sent to the destination, superserialize can then deserialize it back into a JavaScript object, complete with working functions.


npm install superserialize

You can use superserialize in browser JavaScript with the browserify module

Usage Example

var serialize = require('superserialize').serialize,
    deseralize = require('superserialize').deserialize;

var TestObject = {
    sayHello: function(name) {
        console.log(name + ": Hi there!");

var serialized = serialize(TestObject);

console.log(serialized); // This will output a JSON-compatible object

var deserialized = deserialize(serialized);

deserialize.sayHello("Bob"); // This will output "Bob: Hi there!" as expected!
