⚖️ Zod Compare

Build npm

Compare two Zod schemas recursively.

zod-compare provides functions to compare Zod schemas, allowing you to determine whether two schemas are the same or compatible.

Installation

# npm
npm install zod zod-compare

# yarn
yarn add zod zod-compare

# pnpm
pnpm add zod zod-compare

Usage

import { z } from "zod";
import { isSameType, isCompatibleType } from "zod-compare";

isSameType(z.string(), z.string()); // true
isSameType(z.string(), z.number()); // false
isSameType(
  z.object({ name: z.string(), other: z.number() }),
  z.object({ name: z.string() }),
);
// false

isCompatibleType(
  z.object({ name: z.string(), other: z.number() }),
  z.object({ name: z.string() }),
);
// true

Advanced Usage

Custom Rules

You can use createCompareFn to create a custom comparison function.

import {
  createCompareFn,
  isSameTypePresetRules,
  defineCompareRule,
} from "zod-compare";

const customRule = defineCompareRule(
  "compare description",
  (a, b, next, recheck, context) => {
    // If the schemas are not having the same description, return false
    if (a.description !== b.description) {
      return false;
    }
    return next();
  },
);

const strictIsSameType = createCompareFn([
  customRule,
  ...isSameTypePresetRules,
]);

Debugging

You can pass a context object to the comparison functions to get more information about the comparison process.

const context = {
  stacks: [],
};
isSameType(
  z.object({ name: z.string(), other: z.number() }),
  z.object({ name: z.string(), other: z.string() }),
  context,
);

// type stacks = { name: string; target: [a: ZodType, b: ZodType]; result: boolean; }[]
console.log(context.stacks);

Caveats

The default rules isSameTypePresetRules will disregard any custom validations like min, max, length, among others. Additionally, these default rules cannot be utilized for comparing ZodLazy, ZodEffects, ZodDefault, ZodCatch, ZodPipeline, ZodTransformer, ZodError types.

If there is a necessity to compare these types, custom rules can be established using defineCompareRule.

API

isSameType

Compares two Zod schemas and returns true if they are the same.

import { isSameType } from "zod-compare";

type isSameType: (a: ZodType, b: ZodType, context?: CompareContext) => boolean;

createCompareFn

Creates a custom comparison function.

import { createCompareFn, defineCompareRule } from "zod-compare";

type defineCompareRule = (
  name: string,
  rule: CompareFn,
) => {
  name: string;
  rule: CompareFn;
};

type createCompareFn = (rules: CompareRule[]) => typeof isSameType;

// Example
const isSameType = createCompareFn(isSameTypePresetRules);
const isCompatibleType = createCompareFn(isCompatibleTypePresetRules);

isCompatibleType (Experimental API)

Compares two Zod schemas and returns true if they are compatible.

import { isCompatibleType } from "zod-compare";
// The `higherType` should be a looser type
// The `lowerType` should be a stricter type
type isCompatibleType: (higherType: ZodType, lowerType: ZodType) => boolean;

Preset Rules

You can use the preset rules isSameTypePresetRules and isCompatibleTypePresetRules to create custom comparison functions.

import { isSameTypePresetRules, isCompatibleTypePresetRules } from "zod-compare";

type isSameTypePresetRules: CompareRule[];
type isCompatibleTypePresetRules: CompareRule[];

// Example
const yourIsSameType = createCompareFn([customRule, ...isSameTypePresetRules]);

Types

type CompareContext = {
  stacks?: {
    name: string;
    target: [a: ZodType, b: ZodType];
  }[];
} & Record<string, unknown>;

type CompareFn = (
  a: ZodType,
  b: ZodType,
  next: () => boolean,
  recheck: (a: ZodType, b: ZodType) => boolean,
  context: CompareContext,
) => boolean;

type CompareRule = {
  name: string;
  compare: CompareFn;
};
