    Valinor

    A library for writing uncluttered, easy to read field and schema validations.

    Get Started

    Install with: npm i -P valinor

    In your code:

    const v = require('valinor');
    
    // Validate one variable in place.
    let result = v.int.between(0, 32).test(33);
    console.log(result);
    
    // Reuse one valinor.
    let goodPwd = v.str.min(8);
    console.log(
        goodPwd.test('abc'),
        goodPwd.test('abcdefgh'),
        goodPwd.test(null)
    );
    
    // Define a object schema valinor.
    let schema = v.schema({
        name: v.str.match(/^[A-Z][a-z]+\ [A-Z][a-z]+$/),
        password: v.str.min(8),
        birth: v.date.min('2001-01-01').past
    });
    
    result = schema.test({
        name: 'John Doe',
        password: 'abcdefgh',
        birth: new Date('1999-01-01')
    });
    
    // Remove an object's properties that are not present in the schema.
    let coolData = schema.clip("{\"totally\":\"invalid\"}");
    
    // Ignore empty/null values on optional valinors.
    let schemaWithOpt = v.schema({
        firstName: v.str,
        lastName: v.opt.str
    });
    
    console.log(schemaWithOpt.test({
        firstName: 'John',
        lastName: null
    }));
    
    // Ensure you get only valdated keys of an object.
    console.log(schemaWithOpt.test({
        firstName: 'John',
        unvalidated: 'This should not show up',
        lastName: 'Doe'
    }).final);
    
    // Define default values to show up in final object instead of blank optionals
    let schemaWithOpt = v.schema({
        firstName: v.str,
        lastName: v.opt.str.def('Doe')
    });
    
    console.log(schemaWithOpt.test({
        firstName: 'John'
    }).final);

    v.test() method output is always an object with the following keys:

    • ok: Whether validation passed.
    • errs: Array containing all found validation errors. Empty array if all passed.

    Check the full rule reference for all the validations available.

    Method Reference

    • test ( input ): Returns true if the input is valid. Returns an array or problems otherwise.

    Rule Reference

    • in ( array ): Check if value can be found inside given array.
    • num: Check if value is a number.
    • bool: Check if value is a boolean.
    • date: Check if value is a date.
    • obj: Check if value is an object. Will fail for arrays, dates and JSON strings.
    • str: Check if value is a string.
    • func: Check if value is a function. Will fail for BoundFunctions and AsyncFunctions.
    • arr: Check if value is array. Will fail for JSON strings.
    • match ( regex ): Check if value matches the given regex.
    • eq ( primitive | date | array ): Check if values are sctrictly equal. In Arrays, consider also order of elements.
    • gt ( primitive | date | array ): Check if value or it's length is greater than subject.
    • lt ( primitive | date | array ): Check if value or it's length is less than subject.
    • min ( primitive | date | array ): Check if value or it's length is equal or greater than the subject.
    • max ( primitive | date | array ): Check if value or it's length is equal or less than the subject.
    • between ( primitive | date | array ): Check if value or it's length is inclusively inside the given range.
    • len ( string | array ): Check if length is exactly the given subject.
    • has ( string | object | array ): Check if the value contains the subject. For string, object and array it checks respectively substring, keys and values.
    • future ( date ): Check if a date is in the future.
    • past ( date ): Check if a date is in the past.
    • today ( date ): Check if a date time is today.
    • schema ( object ): Check if object's keys follows all their respective Valinor rules.
    • every ( array ): Check if all array elements match a given Valinor rules.
    • some ( array ): Check if any values of the array match given rules. Also picks only the valid values.
    • opt: Mark the Valinor as optional, so skipping any validations for null, undefined or '' values.
    • notIn ( array ): Check if value cannot be found inside given array.
    • notNum, notBool, notDate, notObj, notStr, notFunc, notArr: Reverse type checkers. Read counterparts above for more info.
    • notMatch ( regex ): Check if value does not matche the given regex.
    • dif ( primitive | date | array ): Check if values are sctrictly different. In Arrays, consider also order of elements.
    • notBetween ( primitive | date | array ): Check if value or it's length is exclusively not inside the given range.
    • notLen ( string | array ): Check if length is different than the given subject.
    • hasnt ( string | object | array ): Check if the value does not contain the subject. For string, object and array it checks respectively substring, keys and values.
    • notFuture ( date ): Check if a date is NOT in the future.
    • notPast ( date ): Check if a date is NOT in the past.
    • notToday ( date ): Check if a date time is NOT today.
    • def ( value ): Set a default value to show up on final object in case the valinor is optional and validates an empty value.
    • alter ( fn ): Mutates the input value acording to given funcion (fn) in a pipeline fashion before it reaches the next rule.
