UniversalSerializer is a data serialization library for .NET/.NET Core/.NET Standard/UWP (Universal Windows)/Mono/Xamarin/Silverlight on Windows, Linux, macOS, Android and iOS.

In other words, it saves and loads complex object values/instances to and from a file (or any) stream. The stream format can be binary, JSON, or XML.

This is the main package that contains 8 libraries.

The ability to serialize any type is its vocation.
It is free and open-source.
