This package browser is in early development. Mind the rough edges.


The C library for parsing and generating CBOR

CBOR is a data format whose design goals include the possibility of extremely small code size, fairly small message size, and extensibility without the need for version negotiation. These design goals make it different from earlier binary serializations such as ASN.1 and MessagePack.


Install the latest version of libcbor as follows:

guix install libcbor

Or install a particular version:

guix install libcbor@0.9.0

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
