Too Long; Didn't Read

This article explores the challenges of data serialization in TypeScript when using the JSON format. It particularly focuses on the shortcomings of JSON.stringify and JSON.parse functions. To address these issues, it suggests the use of JSONCompatible type to verify if a type T can be safely serialized to JSON. Furthermore, it recommends the Superstruct library for safe deserialization from JSON. This method improves type safety and enables error detection during development.
