json-validator

Validates JSON against a schema

This module helps you to check if a JSON or a javascript object conforms to a given pattern, in an async or sync manner. Also it helps you make changes to this object (e.g. remove mask from a given field, or a assign a default value for a field).

Actually this library delegates complex validations to validator.js, this means you can use any of their methods. If you are using their validators make sure enclose parameters into square brackets []:

See detailed list here...

npm install --save json-validator
var jsv = require('json-validator');
 
var userSchema = {
  name: {
    required: true,
    trim: true, //will trim the value before next validations 
    isLength: [4, 10], //name must have between 4 and 10 characters 
    validatefunction(namepath) {
      //you can have custom validator too 
        return {
          isValid: true,
          message: 'your custom message'
        };
    },
  },
 
  email: {
    required: true,
    isEmail: true,
    asyncValidatefunction(valuepathcb) {
      setTimeout(function() { //go to your db check if the email is available 
        var isAvailable = true;
        if(isAvailable) {
          cb(null, null); //return emppty string, null or undefined means no validation error 
        } else {
          cb(null, 'Email "' + value + '" at "' + path + '" already taken!');
        }
      }, 100);
    }
  },
 
  myNumber: {
    default: '42'
  },
 
  description: {
    required: true,
    escape: true //escapes HTML characters 
  },
 
  favoriteColors: [{
    required: false,
    enum: ['blue', 'black', 'orange']
  }],
 
  ipsAllowed: [{
    trim: true,
    isIP: true
  }]
}
 
var user = {
  name: 'Gammasoft',
  email: 'contact@gammasoft.com.br',
  description: 'This module is <b>awesome</b>',
  favoriteColors: ['green', 'blue'],
  ipsAllowed: ['192.168.1.102   ', '0.0.0.0', 'thisIsNotAnIp']
};
 
jsv.validate(user, userSchema, function(errmessages) {
  if(err) {
    throw err;
  }
 
  console.log(JSON.stringify(user, null, 4));
  console.log(JSON.stringify(messages, null, 4));
});

The above example gives the following output:

{
    "name": "Gammasoft",
    "email": "contact@gammasoft.com.br",
    "description": "This module is &lt;b&gt;awesome&lt;/b&gt;",
    "favoriteColors": [
        "green",
        "blue"
    ],
    "ipsAllowed": [
        "192.168.1.102",
        "0.0.0.0",
        "thisIsNotAnIp"
    ],
    "myNumber": "42"
}
 
[
    "favoriteColors.0 invalid: the value \"green\" is not allowed. Allowed values are: blue, black, orange",
    "ipsAllowed.2 with value \"thisIsNotAnIp\" is invalid according to validator \"isIP\""
]
