[Task] Create central registry for datatypes
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Currently, datatypes, and various handlers for datatypes, need to be registered or hardcoded in several places. There should be a single central place for defining datatypes, and providing the necessary specifications and callbacks.

Some things that currently need to be registered for datatypes:

  • the value type
  • serializer/unserializer
  • parser and various formatters
  • validators
