how can I decode something like

newtype RecursiveObject
  = RecursiveObject { child :: Maybe RecursiveObject }

with argonaut? (independent of weather or not there are other keys in the record if possible)


You should simply be able to call your decoder recursively?

wow, you're totally right. I was getting an error because I was doing it point free.
