Hyperjump - JSON Schema Validator

JSON Schema Validator (JSV) is built on JSON Schema Core.

  • Supported JSON Schema Dialects
    • draft-04 | draft-06 | draft-07 | Draft 2019-09 | Draft 2020-12
    • Create your own dialect with JSC
  • Schemas can reference other schemas using a different draft
  • Supported vocabularies (new in Draft 2019-09)
    • Draft 2019-09: core | applicator | validation | meta-data | content
    • Draft 2020-12: core | applicator | validation | meta-data | content | format-annotations
    • Create your own keywords and vocabularies with JSC
  • Output formats
    • Create your own output format with JSC
  • Load schemas from filesystem (file://), network (http(s)://), or JavaScript
  • Build non-validation JSON-Schema based tools with JSC


JSV is designed to run in a vanilla node.js environment, but has no dependencies on node.js specific libraries so it can be bundled for the browser. No compilers, preprocessors, or bundlers are used.


npm install @hyperjump/json-schema


When in a browser context, JSV is designed to use the browser's fetch implementation instead of a node.js fetch clone. The Webpack bundler does this properly without any extra configuration, but if you are using the Rollup bundler you will need to include the browser: true option in your Rollup configuration.

  plugins: [
      browser: true


This project is in beta and there may be breaking changes at any time. When it's stable enough, I'll publish v1.0.0 and follow semantic versioning from there on out.


const JsonSchema = require("@hyperjump/json-schema");

// Example: Inline schema
const schemaJson = {
  "$schema": "",
  "$id": "",
  "type": "string"
const schema = await JsonSchema.get("");

// Example: Fetch from the web
const schema = await JsonSchema.get("");

// Example: Fetch from file
const schema = await JsonSchema.get("file:///path/to/my/schemas/string.schema.json");

// Example: Validate instance
const output = await JsonSchema.validate(schema, "foo");
if (output.valid) {
  console.log("Instance is valid :-)");
} else {
  console.log("Instance is invalid :-(");

// Example: Precompile validator
const isString = await JsonSchema.validate(schema);
const output = isString("foo");

// Example: Specify output format
const output = await JsonSchema.validate(schema, "foo", JsonSchema.VERBOSE);

// Example: Specify meta-validation output format

// Example: Disable meta-validation


  • add: (schema: object, url?: URI, schemaVersion?: string) => undefined

    Load a schema. See JSC - $id and JSC - $schema for more information.

  • get: (url: URI, contextDoc?: SDoc, recursive: boolean = false) => Promise

    Fetch a schema. Schemas can come from an HTTP request, a file, or a schema that was added with add.

  • validate: (schema: SDoc, instance: any, outputFormat: OutputFormat = FLAG) => Promise

    Validate an instance against a schema. The function is curried to allow compiling the schema once and applying it to multiple instances.

  • compile: (schema: SDoc) => Promise

    Compile a schema to be interpreted later. A compiled schema is a JSON serializable structure that can be serialized an restored for later use.

  • interpret: (schema: CompiledSchema, instance: any, outputFormat: OutputFormat = FLAG) => OutputUnit

    A curried function for validating an instance against a compiled schema.

  • setMetaOutputFormat: (outputFormat: OutputFormat = DETAILED) => undefined

    Set the output format for meta-validation. Meta-validation output is only returned if meta-validation results in an error.

  • setShouldMetaValidate: (isEnabled: boolean) => undefined

    Enable or disable meta-validation.

  • OutputFormat: [FLAG | BASIC | DETAILED | VERBOSE]

    See JSC - Output for more information on output formats.

Not (yet) Supported
