Lightweight, extensible schema and data validation tool for Python dictionaries.

Project description

Build status Python versions

Cerberus is a lightweight and extensible data validation library for Python.

>>> v = Validator({'name': {'type': 'string'}})
>>> v.validate({'name': 'john doe'})
True

Features

Cerberus provides type checking and other base functionality out of the box and is designed to be non-blocking and easily extensible, allowing for custom validation. It has no dependencies and is thoroughly tested under Python 2.6, Python 2.7, Python 3.3, Python 3.4, Python 3.5, Python 3.6, PyPy and PyPy3.
