Cacheable schema description and validation

Project description

Conformity is a declarative schema validation library designed for use in libraries, services, application settings, and more.

Declare a schema:

from conformity.fields import Dictionary, Float, Integer, List, UnicodeString

person = Dictionary({
    "name": UnicodeString(),
    "height": Float(gte=0),
    "event_ids": List(Integer(gt=0)),

Check to see if data is valid:

data = {"name": "Andrew", "height": 180.3, "event_ids": [1, "3"]}
errors = person.errors(data)

# Key event_ids: Index 1: Not an integer

And wrap functions to validate on the way in and out:

kwargs = Dictionary({
    "name": UnicodeString(),
    "score": Integer(),
}, optional_keys=["score"])

@validate_call(kwargs, UnicodeString())
def greet(name, score=0):
    if score > 10:
        return "So nice to meet you, {}!".format(name)
        return "Hello, {}.".format(name)

There’s support for basic string, numeric, geographic, temporal, networking, and other field types, with everything easily extensible (optionally via subclassing). Conformity also boasts support for full-blown application settings schema definition and validation complete with definable defaults, and includes Sphinx autodoc extensions to help you generate meaningful documentation for your code using Conformity.
