IPLD Schema Implementation: parser and utilities

IPLD Schemas are a work in progress but are already useful. Read more about IPLD Schemas at https://github.com/ipld/specs/tree/master/schemas

This project is also a work in progress, but should parse schemas as they are defined at the time of last publish.

Usage

const Schema = require('ipld-schema')

let schema = new Schema(`
  type SimpleStruct struct {
    foo Int
    bar Bool
    baz String
  }
  type MyMap { String: SimpleStruct }
`)

console.dir(schema.descriptor, { depth: Infinity })

// →
// {
//   SimpleStruct: {
//     kind: 'struct',
//     fields: {
//       foo: { type: 'Int' },
//       bar: { type: 'Bool' },
//       baz: { type: 'String' }
//     },
//     representation: { map: {} }
//   },
//   MyMap: { kind: 'map', keyType: 'String', valueType: 'SimpleStruct' }
// }

Schema#validate(block, rootType) can be used to validate an in-memory block representation against the schema defined by the schema object. It will throw an error if the block does not match the schema provided.

Continuing from the previous example:

const myMap = {
  one: { foo: 100, bar: true, baz: 'one' },
  two: { foo: -100, bar: false, baz: 'two' },
  three: { foo: 1, bar: true, baz: 'three' },
}

// validate that 'one' is of type 'SimpleStruct'
schema.validate(myMap.one, 'SimpleStruct')

// validate that the whole 'myMap' object is of type 'MyMap'
schema.validate(myMap, 'MyMap')

Command line

ipld-schema also exports an executable: if installed with -g you will get an ipld-schema command in your PATH.

This executable has two commands that operate on files or stdin.

  • ipld-schema validate [files...]
  • ipld-schema to-json [-t] [files...]

Both commands take either .ipldsch or .md files. When using .md files, ipld-schema will extract any ``` code blocks using the ipldsch or sh language codes.

Validation

The validate command will take an .ipldsch or .md file and validate its schema contents.

$ ipld-schema validate simple-struct.ipldsch
Validated simple-struct.ipldsch ...

or

$ ipld-schema validate README.md
Validated README.md ...

Alternatively, you can provide IPLD schema data via stdin:

$ cat simple-struct.ipldsch | ipld-schema validate
Validated <stdin> ...

JSONification

The to-json command will take one or more .ipldsch or .md files and print a JSON form of the schemas found within.

$ ipld-schema to-json simple-struct.ipldsch
{
  "schema": {
    "SimpleStruct": {
      "kind": "struct",
      "fields": {
        "foo": {
          "type": "Int"
        },
        "bar": {
          "type": "Bool"
        },
        "baz": {
          "type": "String"
        }
      },
      "representation": {
        "map": {}
      }
    },
    "MyMap": {
      "kind": "map",
      "keyType": "String",
      "valueType": "SimpleStruct"
    }
  }
}

Provide a -t to print with tabs instead of two-spaces.

ipld-schema to-json also accepts input via stdin:

$ cat simple-struct.ipldsch | ipld-schema to-json
...
