DialogSchema Command Line tool

DialogSchema tool is a command line tool designed to merge together Microsoft Bot Builder .schema JSON schema files into a single JSON schema file. You can point to the files either directly with a glob pattern or indirectly through a glob pattern that matches a package.json, packages.config or *.csproj file. The .schema files should have a unique filename that is used to refer to that type using $type. The .schema files can optionally include a $schema: "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Microsoft/botbuilder-tools/SchemaGen/packages/DialogSchema/src/dialogSchema.schema" which defines the schema they are validated against. Within a schema definition you can use $role:"unionType(<type>) to project the type definition into union types defined using $role:"unionType" while merging. To refer to a type in a property, just use "$type":"<type>". The merger combines all of the component .schema files into a single .schema file that has resolved all external $ref, merged allOf and connected together schemas through $role and $type.

In addition to types you can also mark properties with a $role which will define the underlying type and restrictions. This is also useful information for UI tools to help you construct values. Roles include:

  • "$role": "expression"which marks a string property which is expected to contain an expression string.
  • "$role": "lg"which marks a string property which is used for lanuage generation and can refer to LG templates.
  • "$role": "memoryPath"which marks a string property which is expected to contain a path in memory like user.name.

For example look at these files:

  • Microsoft.IRecognizer.schema defines the place holder for Microsoft.IRecognizer including a default option which is a bare string.
  • Microsoft.LUISRecognizer.schema includes "$implements":\["Microsoft.IRecognizer"\] which extends the Microsoft.IRecognizer definition when merged. Microsoft.RegexRecognizer.schema is another implementation.
  • Microsoft.Topic.schema is a schema file that includes "$type":"Microsoft.IRecognizer" in order to make use of the Microsoft.IRecognizer place holder.
  • app.schema was created by this tool shows how all of these defintions are merged together. In particular if you look at Microsoft.IRecognizer you will see the definition that includes a string, or the complete definition of Microsoft.LUISRecognizer or Microsoft.RegexRecognizer.

example.dialog Shows how you could use the resulting schema to enter in JSON schema and get intellisense.
