restify-joi-middleware

Another joi validation middleware for restify. Inspired by restify-joi-validator

standard travis npm

Installation:

npm i restify-joi-middleware --save

Note:

Requires Node >8.0.0.

Example:

This example is available here as well.

const Joi = require('joi')
const restify = require('restify')
const {name, version} = require('./package.json')
const validator = require('restify-joi-middleware')
 
const server = restify.createServer({name, version})
server.use(restify.plugins.acceptParser(server.acceptable))
server.use(restify.plugins.queryParser())
server.use(restify.plugins.bodyParser({mapParams: false}))
server.use(restify.plugins.gzipResponse())
 
server.use(validator()) // see "Middleware Options" for all options
 
// additional middleware etc
 
server.get({
  path: '/:id',
  validation: {
    schema: {
      params: Joi.object().keys({
        id: Joi.number().min(0).required()
      }).required()
    }
  }
}, (req, res, next) => {
  res.send(200, {id: req.params.id})
  next()
})
 
server.post({
  path: '/',
  validation: {
    schema: {
      body: Joi.object().keys({
        name: Joi.string().required()
      }).required()
    },
    // overrides middleware settings for this route
    options: {
      joiOptions: {
        allowUnknown: false
      }
    }
  }
}, (req, res, next) => {
  res.send(201, {id: 1, name: req.body.name})
  next()
})
 
server.put({
  path: '/:id',
  // Joi.object().keys({}) schemas work too
  validation: { 
    schema: Joi.object().keys({
      params: Joi.object().keys({
        id: Joi.number().min(0).required()
      }).required(),
      body: Joi.object().keys({
        id: Joi.number().min(0).required(),
        name: Joi.string().required()
      }).required()
    }).assert('params.id', Joi.ref('body.id'))
  }
}, (req, res, next) => {
  res.send(200, {id: 1, name: req.body.name})
  next()
})
 
server.listen(8080, () => console.log(`${server.name} listening on: ${server.url}`))

Given the server above:

curl 'http://localhost:8080/'
# result
# {
#   "code": "BadRequest",
#   "message": "child \"params\" fails because [child \"id\" fails because [\"id\" must be a number]]"
# }

curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"color":"Blue"}' http://127.00.1:8080/
# result
# {
#   "code":"BadRequest",
#   "message":"child \"body\" fails because [child \"name\" fails because [\"name\" is required]]"
# }

curl -X PUT -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"id": 1, "name":"Max"}' http://127.00.1:8080/2
# result
# {
#   "code":"BadRequest",
#   "message":"\"params.id\" validation failed because \"params.id\" failed to pass the assertion test"
# }

Middleware Options:

If you don't like how errors are returned or transformed from Joi errors to restify errors, you can change that for the entire plug-in. For example:

server.use(validator({
  joiOptions: {
    convert: true,
    allowUnknown: true,
    abortEarly: false
    // .. all additional joi options
  },
  // changes the request keys validated
  keysToValidate: ['params', 'body', 'query', 'user', 'headers', 'trailers', 'files'],
  
  // changes how joi errors are transformed to be returned - no error details are returned 
  // in this case
  errorTransformer: (validationInput, joiError) => new restifyErrors.BadRequestError(),
  
  // changes how errors are returned
  errorResponder: (transformedErr, req, res, next) => {
    res.send(400, transformedErr)
    return next()
  }
}))

Per-route Options

You can also override any middleware setting above per route, e.g.:

server.get({
  path: '/:id',
  validation: {
    schema: {
      params: Joi.object().keys({
        id: Joi.number().min(0).required()
      }).required()
    },
    options: {
      joiOptions: {
        allowUnknown: false
        // .. all additional joi options
      },
      
      // changes how errors are returned
      errorResponder: (transformedErr, req, res, next) => {
        res.send(400, transformedErr)
        return next()
      },
      
      // changes how joi errors are transformed to be returned - no error details are returned 
      // in this case
      errorTransformer: (validationInput, joiError) => new restifyErrors.BadRequestError()
      
      // keysToValidate can also be overridden here 
    }
  }
}, (req, res, next) => {
  res.send(200, {id: req.params.id})
  next()
})
