Python method's parameter validation library, as a pythonic decorator

Project description

Validates input parameters of a callable using this arguments:

param: arg_types:            list of types, Required argument's types  & counts in order
param: deny_match            list of string ,regex pattern, if any argument matches with the pattern, exception raises
param: requires:             list of fields to check for mandatory

param: deny_except:          string ,regex pattern for excluding fields from deny
param: types:                dict of key:name and value:type to check for types, if mismatch it will be raises exception
param: values:               dict of key:name and value:regex pattern to check the values, & fire exception if mismatch
param: ignore:               string ,regex pattern of parameters to filter
param: defaults:             dict of key:name and value:default_value


raise: MandatoryException:           if any param in requires does not provided
raise: ArgumentException:            if arguments are invalid , short or mismatch type.
raise: DenialException:              if found param in deny list
raise: ParameterTypeException:       if parameter types invalid
raise: ParameterValueException:      if values are not in correct format
