Your Help Needed
If you know Tailspin, please write code for some of the tasks not implemented in Tailspin.

Tailspin simplifies data transfer and the processing of data according to rules and conditions. Thanks to its declarative data structures and corresponding condition matching syntax, many algorithms look exactly like the specification, for example, compare the json parser and the json specification.

Despite the grounding in business data processing, Tailspin turns out to be fun to use and has been used for the adventofcode events of 2018 , 2019 and 2020

The inspiration comes mostly from xslt, but data structures are json-like. The main idea is to let your data flow through a series of transforms so it should be easy to specify that flow. Transform steps can be specified as a set of templates with pattern-matching determining which template to apply. Output is generally specified as literals with interpolation of values.
