Fork

This fork removes the legacy build and thus drops dependencies such as core-js and @babel/runtime which is not needed on modern installations.

  • Node 12 and later supports the modern build and according to the release plan node 10 was EOL at 2021-04-30.
  • Earlier versions is already EOL and not supported. Anyone using it should update instead.

The following PRs from upstream are merged:

Installation

$ npm i @sidvind/better-ajv-errors

Also make sure that you installed ajv package to validate data against JSON schemas.

Usage

First, you need to validate your payload with ajv. If it's invalid then you can pass validate.errors object into better-ajv-errors.

import Ajv from 'ajv';
import betterAjvErrors from '@sidvind/better-ajv-errors';
// const Ajv = require('ajv');
// const betterAjvErrors = require('@sidvind/better-ajv-errors').default;
// Or
// const { default: betterAjvErrors } = require('@sidvid/better-ajv-errors');

// You need to pass `{ jsonPointers: true }` for older versions of ajv
const ajv = new Ajv();

// Load schema and data
const schema = ...;
const data = ...;

const validate = ajv.compile(schema);
const valid = validate(data);

if (!valid) {
  const output = betterAjvErrors(schema, data, validate.errors);
  console.log(output);
}
