Persistent-variables is a convenience library that makes it easy to serialize and deserialize variables. It would be ideal in scripts, and as a light weight alternative to configuration files.

It is short, well documented (website, manual) and tested.

  • Loadable and testable using ASDF
  • Variables can be grouped into persistence 'sets' and serialized/deserialized independently.
  • Late-binding --- you can load the saved data before you load the code. It'll get hooked up appropriately
  • Forgiving of missing variables and changing package names.
