"And if you have written code that is not just a “filler” for a bigger system, but a creation of your own, you know that writer block also happens in programming. The only difference is that for most people you are an engineer, hence, if you don’t work, you are lazy. The same laziness, in the case of an artist, will assume the shape of a fascinating part of the creative process."

Implementation in : Figured out a way to implement custom Unmarshaler for dynamic values with user-given datatypes. I'm kinda proud of it 😅.

I implemented the decoding for primitive datatypes, just need to implement structs and arrays now.

For decoding , I want to expose functionality for caller to specify a list of parameter types to parse the values into. But I don't know how to implement it by implementing the Unmarshaller interface alone.
