    'name': All(Strip(), NotEmpty()),
    'age': Range(min=0, max=200),

    output = schema(input)
except Invalid as e:


This library takes inspiration from Voluptuous and Good, but doesn’t implement many of their more magical features. You may be interested in them if you find yourself wanting more.
