Certifiable is a powerful runtime parameter validation library for python.


Examples of all features can be found here: :ref:`usage`.

Core types

It can validate the following *core* types

* Text
* Unicode
* String
* Bytes
* Bool
* Int
* Long
* Number
* Decimal
* Float
* Enum
* Enum value
* Timestamp
* Date
* Time
* Object

Complex types

There are more `complex` or compound types into which you can pass `other` certifiers:

* List
* Tuple
* Set
* Iterable
* Dict
* Json
* Html
* Email


There are logical operators to combine certifiers:

* ANY (certify_only_one)
* AND (certify_all)
* ALL (certify_all)
* NAND (certify_none)
* XOR (certify_only_one)

Custom Certifier

Use the `make_certifier` decorator and (optionally) bake-in some args and kwargs (any return value
from a certifier is ignored) to create your own certifier (first arg must be the value to certify):

>>> @make_certifier
... def my_certifier(value, *baked_args, **baked_kwargs):
... print value
... print baked_args
... print baked_kwargs
... baked_kwargs['data'].append('green')
... if len(baked_kwargs['data'])==2:
... raise MyError('damn!')

>>> args_to_bake = ('eggs', 'ham')
>>> kwargs_to_bake = dict(spam='lots', data=[])
>>> certifier = my_certifier(*args_to_bake, **kwargs_to_bake)

certifier can now be used as an argument to other certifiers.

>>> certify_list(
... [1,'a'],
... certifier=certifiers,
... min_len=2,
... max_len=5,
... required=True,
... )
('eggs', 'ham')
{'spam': 'lots', data: []}
('eggs', 'ham')
{'spam': 'lots', data: ['green']}
Traceback (most recent call last):
MyError: damn!
