This functionality is discussed in Chapter 7 of Flight School Guide to Swift Codable.
- Swift 4.2+
import MessagePack let encoder = MessagePackEncoder() let value = try! encoder.encode(["a": 1, "b": 2, "c": 3]) // [0x83, 0xA1, 0x62, 0x02, 0xA1, 0x61, 0x01, 0xA1, 0x63, 0x03]
import MessagePack let decoder = MessagePackDecoder() let data = Data(bytes: [0xCB, 0x40, 0x09, 0x21, 0xF9, 0xF0, 0x1B, 0x86, 0x6E]) let value = try! decoder.decode(Double.self, from: data) // 3.14159

MessagePack via CocoaPods, by adding the following line to your
