Build Status npm module Conventional Commits

GraphQL constraint directive written in functional programming style. This directive provides declarative validation of GraphQL arguments.

Install

yarn add node-graphql-constraint-lambda
# or 
npm install node-graphql-constraint-lambda

Usage

Example GraphQL Schema:

type Query {
  createUser (
    name: String! @constraint(minLength: 5, maxLength: 40)
    emailAddr: String @constraint(format: "email")
    otherEmailAddr: String @constraint(format: "email", differsFrom: "emailAddr")
    age: Int @constraint(min: 18)
  ): User
}

Use the constraint from your code:

// when using es6 modules
import { constraint } from 'node-graphql-constraint-lambda'
 
// when using commonjs
const { constraint } = require('node-graphql-constraint-lambda')
 
// ... initialize your typeDefs and resolvers here ...
 
const server = new GraphQLServer({
  typeDefs,
  resolvers,
  schemaDirectives: {
    constraint
  }
  // ... additional graphql server config
})
// ... start your server

You may need to declare the directive in the schema:

directive @constraint(
  minLength: Int
  maxLength: Int
  startsWith: String
  endsWith: String
  contains: String
  notContains: String
  pattern: String
  format: String
  differsFrom: String
  min: Float
  max: Float
  exclusiveMin: Float
  exclusiveMax: Float
  notEqual: Float
) on ARGUMENT_DEFINITION

API

Available constraints

See stringValidators, numericValidators and formatValidator mapping in src/validators.js.

Available formats

We use some functions from the validator package. See format2fun mapping in src/validators.js.

Customization

Default behavoir

The following code shows how the constraint directive is configured with default behaviour:

// this code:
import { constraint } from 'node-graphql-constraint-lambda'
 
// is equivalent to:
import {
  prepareConstraintDirective,
  defaultValidationCallback,
  defaultErrorMessageCallback
} from 'node-graphql-constraint-lambda'
 
const constraint = prepareConstraintDirective(
  defaultValidationCallback, defaultErrorMessageCallback )
 

Custom error messages

Error messages are generated using a callback function that by default shows a generic error message. It is possible to change this behavior by implementing a custom callback similar to this one:

const myErrorMessageCallback = ({ argName, cName, cVal, data }) =>
  `Error at field ${argName} in constraint ${cName}:${cVal}, data=${data}`

You might also want to customize certain messages and to keep the default callback as a fallback for all other messages:

const myErrorMessageCallback = input => {
  const { argName, cName, cVal, data } = input
  if (/* decide whether to show custom message */)
    return "custom error message" // based on input
  else
    return defaultErrorMessageCallback(input)
}
 
const constraint = prepareConstraintDirective(
  defaultValidationCallback, myErrorMessageCallback )

Custom validation functions

Also the validation functions are implemented through a callback function. The constraint directive comes with a set of useful defaults but if you want to add your own validator, it can be done as follows:

import {
  createValidationCallback,
  prepareConstraintDirective,
  defaultValidators } from 'node-graphql-constraint-lambda'
 
// you can merge default validators with your own validator
const myValidators = {
  ...defaultValidators,
 
  // your custom validator comes here
  constraintName: constrintValue => dataToValidate => true/false
 
  // Example: numerical pin codes of certain size `@constraint(pin:4)`
  pin: size => code => length(code) === size && match(/[0-9]+/)(code)
}
 
const myValidationCallback = createValidationCallback(myValidators)
 
// now you can create the constraint class
const constraint = prepareConstraintDirective(
  myValidationCallback, defaultErrorMessageCallback )

There is a special format validator that supports the following:

  • @constraint(format: "email")
  • @constraint(format: "base64")
  • @constraint(format: "date")
  • @constraint(format: "ipv4")
  • @constraint(format: "ipv6")
  • @constraint(format: "url")
  • @constraint(format: "uuid")
  • @constraint(format: "futuredate")
  • @constraint(format: "pastdate")
  • @constraint(format: "creditcard")

Let's say we want to extend it to support format: "uppercase" format that checks whether all characters are just uppercase letters:

import {
  formatValidator,
  numericValidators,
  format2fun,
  stringValidators } from 'node-graphql-constraint-lambda'
 
const customFormat2Fun = {
  ...format2fun,
 
  uppercase: x => match(/[A-Z]*/)(x)
  // we could have omitted the `x` parameter due to currying in the
  // `match` function from ramda
}
 
const validators = {
  ...formatValidator(customFormat2Fun),
  ...numericValidators,
  ...stringValidators
}
 
// now you can create the constraint class
const constraint = prepareConstraintDirective(
  createValidationCallback(validators),
  defaultErrorMessageCallback
)
