Is any of them supporting Erlang 'record' as their base for
encoding/decoding. I see many of them are doing it with just list of tuples
of binaries.Erlang records best match the structure of JSON format.

{"name": "Theepan",
  "work": "Coding",
  "salary": "0"

Matching Erlang record
-record( json_record,
  'name' = "Theepan",
  'work' = "Coding",
  'salary' = "0"
