nsure

[nsure] is a nodejs class that allows deep testing, modification chains and model generation of objects

The goal here was to have a simple, yet highly flexible cheking system for variables

This project is still in very early development, hence anything is subject to change!

  • installing
    npm install nsure
  • a simple example

this is a series of checks and modifications to make sure (nsure ;) ) that a string is a valid email

var nsure = require('nsure');
    var nsureRules_user_email = {
defaultTo: function() {
return 'defaultEmail@itsatony.com';
},
checks: [ 'type', 'stringMaxLength', 'replace_trim', 'email' ],
type: {
expected: 'string',
onFail: [ 'returnError' ],
error: {
code: 'email.format',
msg: '[email] needs to be valid, >6 chars and <80 chars.'
}
},
stringMaxLength: {
max: 80,
onFail: [ 'returnError' ],
error: {
code: 'email.format',
msg: '[email] needs to be valid, >6 chars and <80 chars.'
}
},
replace_trim: {
query: /^[\s]+|[\s]+$/g,
replacement: ''
},
email: {
onFail: [ 'returnError' ],
error: {
code: 'email.format',
msg: '[email] needs to be valid, >6 chars and <80 chars.'
}
}
};
var emailCheck = new nsure(nsureRules_user_email);
emailCheck('bla @blub');
  • helpers for shortening your checks
var helpDemoRuleSet = {
'attributesToCheck': {
'gender': Nsure.helpers.inListNsure(['m', 'f']),
'height': Nsure.helpers.numberNsure(100, 290, 180),
'tld': Nsure.helpers.stringNsure(4, '.com'),
'url': Nsure.helpers.urlNsure(400, 'http://google.com'),
'email': Nsure.helpers.emailNsure(),
'protocols': Nsure.helpers.arrayOfNsure(['string', ['http', 'ftp', 'https' ], ['http'])
},
onUnruledAttributes: [ 'deleteAttribute' ],
onError: 'returnErrorMsg'
};
var testObject = {
};
var testEnsure = new Nsure(helpDemoRuleSet);
console.log(testObject);
console.log('single attribute check ---');
var result = testEnsure.check(testObject, [ 'gender' ]);
console.log(result);
console.log('full attribute check ---');
var result = testEnsure.check(testObject);
console.log(result);
console.log('---MODEL---');
console.log(testEnsure.model);
console.log('---=====---'); 
  • getting a model from a more complex check

Here a complex object is defined, then a ruleset is defined and a nsure generated for it. the object is passed through and the result is modified appropriately. Also, whenever a nsure is instanced using a ruleset, it will generate a model based on that set of rules, which is available via .model
