Valida - A lightweight sanitizer and validator library for Node.js.

This document describes how Valida library works and which features it offers. Each section of this document includes usage examples. You can find additional examples at examples folder.

Simple example

var schema = {
  id: [
    { sanitizer: Valida.Sanitizer.toInt },
    { validator: Valida.Validator.required }
  ],
  age: [
    { sanitizer: Valida.Sanitizer.toInt },
    { validator: Valida.Validator.required, groups: ['create'] }
  ],
  name: [
    { validator: Valida.Validator.required, groups: ['update'] }
  ],
  answers: [
    { validator: Valida.Validator.array },
    { validator: Valida.Validator.len, min: 3, max: 10 },
  ]
};

var person = { age: '10', answers: ['A', 'D'] };

Valida.process(person, schema, function(err, ctx) {
  if (err) return console.log(err);
  if (!ctx.isValid()) return console.log(ctx.errors());
  console.log('valid', person);
}, ['create']);

Features

  • Sanitization
  • Synchronous and asynchronous validation
  • Groups
  • Extensible

All the features are applied through the process function.

Valida.process(
  @data,
  @schema,
  @callback,
  @group
);

options:

  • @data is the object to be applied the sanitization and validation
  • @schema is an object describing to Valida how to process it
  • @callback is a function that is going to be called after processing the data
  • @group is a string or array describing which groups must be applied in this process (optional)

Sanitization

Valida supports synchronous sanitization.

  • toInt
  • toFloat
  • toDate
  • trim
  • string
  • lowerCase
  • titleCase
  • upperCaseFirst
  • upperCase
  • toBool

toInt

options:

  • radix (optional, default 10)
var schema = {
  age: [{ sanitizer: Valida.Sanitizer.toInt }]
};

toFloat

options:

  • precision (optional)
var schema = {
  salary: [{ sanitizer: Valida.Sanitizer.toFloat }]
};

toDate

var schema = {
  birthday: [{ sanitizer: Valida.Sanitizer.toDate }]
};

trim

options:

  • chars (optional)

var schema = {
  name: [{ sanitizer: Valida.Sanitizer.trim }]
};

string


var schema = {
  name: [{ sanitizer: Valida.Sanitizer.string }]
};

lowerCase


var schema = {
  name: [{ sanitizer: Valida.Sanitizer.lowerCase }]
};

titleCase


var schema = {
  name: [{ sanitizer: Valida.Sanitizer.titleCase }]
};

upperCaseFirst


var schema = {
  name: [{ sanitizer: Valida.Sanitizer.upperCaseFirst }]
};

upperCase


var schema = {
  name: [{ sanitizer: Valida.Sanitizer.upperCase }]
};

toBool


var schema = {
  published: [{ sanitizer: Valida.Sanitizer.toBool }]
};

Validation

Valida supports both synchronous and asynchronous validation.

  • required
  • empty
  • regex
  • len
  • array
  • plainObject
  • date
  • integer
  • enum
  • bool
  • float
  • range

required

Field is required.

var schema = {
  age: [{ validator: Valida.Validator.required }]
};

empty

Field must be not empty.

var schema = {
  description: [{ validator: Valida.Validator.empty }]
};

regex

Validation based in a regex.

options:

  • pattern: regex pattern
  • modifiers: regex modifier (optional)
var schema = {
  name: [{ validator: Valida.Validator.regex, pattern: '[A-Z]', modifiers: 'i' }]
};

len

Validation based in the size of an array or in the number of chars of a non-array.

options:

  • min
  • max
var schema = {
  products: [{ validator: Valida.Validator.len, min: 2, max: 10 }]
};

array

Field must be an array.

var schema = {
  products: [{ validator: Valida.Validator.array }]
};

plainObject

Field must be a plain object.

var schema = {
  person: [{ validator: Valida.Validator.plainObject }]
};

date

Field must be a date.

var schema = {
  createdAt: [{ validator: Valida.Validator.date }]
};

integer

Field must be a integer.

var schema = {
  createdAt: [{ validator: Valida.Validator.integer }]
};

enum

Field value must be list of valid values.

options:

  • items: an array with the valid values
var schema = {
  color: [{ validator: Valida.Validator.enum, items: ['blue', 'black', 'white'] }]
};

bool

Field must be a bool.

options:

  • default
var schema = {
  published: [{ validator: Valida.Validator.bool, default: false }]
};

float

Field must be a float.

var schema = {
  salary: [{ validator: Valida.Validator.float }]
};

range

Field value must be between a min and/or max value.

options:

  • min: The minimum value of the range
  • max: The maximum value of the range
var schema = {
  code: [{ validator: Valida.Validator.range, min: 0, max: 10 }]
};

Groups

Allows reuse the same schema validation for multiple actions. For example on creating an item a specific field is required. But on updating it that field is optional.

var schema = {
  id: [{ validator: Valida.Validator.required, groups: ['update'] }]
  products: [{ validator: Valida.Validator.array, groups: ['create'] }]
};

Valida.process(data, schema, function(err, ctx) {
  console.log('create', create);
}, 'create');

Extensible
