Build Status Coverage Status

Installation

npm i --save condor-validate
npm i --save condor-framework

Usage

const Condor = require('condor-framework');
const condorValidator = require('condor-validator');
const Greeter = require('./greeter');
 
const server = new Condor()
  .add('path/to/file.proto', 'GreeterService', new Greeter())
  .use(condorValidator(/* options */))
  .start();

And, then in your Greeter class:

module.exports = class {
  sayHello(ctx) {
    // check the values of request 
    ctx.checkRequest('name').notEmpty('Name cannot be empty');
    ctx.checkRequest('age').optional().isInt().gte(0, 'Age cannot be negative');
    ctx.checkRequest('other.email').optional().isEmail('Invalid email');
    
    // checks the value of ctx.metadata.get('authorization')[0] 
    ctx.checkMetadata('authorization').notEmpty();
    
    // you can determine the index of metadata to check 
    ctx.checkMetadata('authorization', 1).notEmpty();
    
    // You can also check using jsonpath (view https://github.com/dchester/jsonpath) 
    ctx.checkRequest('$.store.book[*].author').first().notEmpty();
    
    // if any errors, finalizes the call 
    ctx.validate();
    
    // this line will execute only if there aren't any errors 
    return {'greeting': `Hello ${ctx.req.name}`};
  }
}

API

  • checkRequest(field). Checks the field in the request. Field is an string that can be simple, nested, contain arrays, or be a jsonpath:

    • simple: When the property you want to check is ctx.req.simple
    • nested.field: When the property you want to check is ctx.req.nested.field
    • other[0].field: When the property you want to check is ctx.req.other[0].field
    • $.another[0].field: When you want to use json path to access the property. See [jsonpath](https://github.com/dchester/jsonpath) documentation for more information.
  • checkMetadata(field, [index]): Checks the filed in the authorization metadata. If no index provided, index 0 will be used.

  • validate([code], [message]): Validates if there are any errors in ctx.errors.

If there are one or more errors, ctx.validate() will throw an error with INVALID_ARGUMENT code, and the ctx.errors object in the detail, finishing the request.

The user will receive an error like:

{
  "code": 3,
  "details": "{\"name\"\"Name cannot be empty\"\"other.email\"\"Invalid email\"}"
}

If you want to launch with another status code or with your own message, you can do it as well:

// if there are errors, respond with cancelled status 
ctx.validate(ctx.status.CANCELLED);
 
// if there are errors, respond with cancelled status and custom message 
ctx.validate(ctx.status.CANCELLED, 'Request cancelled by the server');
 
// which is the same as 
if (ctx.errors) {
  throw {
    'code': ctx.status.CANCELLED,
    'details': 'Request cancelled by server',
  };
}

Known issues

  • Sanitizers haven't been tested, and should not work, except maybe for simple fields.
  • json path options haven't been fully tested

Under the hood

Built on top of Validator class of koa-validate module, which uses validator module. Inspired on express-validator and koa-validate.

In the future, we will use a differente Validator class in order to make sanitizers work.
