Cerberus alternative

Project description

# Sureberus

This is an implementation of the [Cerberus](
schema format. It doesn't implement all of the features of that library, and
where it does implement a feature it doesn't always implement it in the exact
same way.

The main reason it exists is to support some of the things that Cerberus doesn't

## normalization inside of *of-rules

The primary important difference is that you can use sureberus if you want to
use `default` or `coerce` inside of a

## Nullable in the face of *of-rules

Sureberus allows you to use `nullable` even if you have `*of-rules` that have
`type` constraints. A nullable schema always allows `None`.

## A slightly nicer schema syntax

If you want to construct a schema from Python code instead of storing it as
JSON, sureberus provides a more terse syntax for it:

Here's a standard dict-based schema, using an 80-character limit and strict
newline/indent-based line wrapping:

myschema = {
'type': 'dict',
'anyof': [
{'schema': {'gradient': {'type': 'string'}}},
'schema': {
'image': {'type': 'string'},
'opacity': {'type': 'integer', 'default': 100},

And here is a `sureberus.schema`-based schema, using the same line-wrapping

from sureberus.schema import Dict, SubSchema, String, Integer
myschema = Dict(
SubSchema(image=String(), opacity=Integer(default=100))
