ReVal (Reusable Validation Library) is a Django App for validating data via an API and web interface.

In the web interface, ReVal can manage data submitted as file uploads to a central gathering point, including data validation, basic change tracking and duplicate file handling. Each file generally contains multiple data rows, and each user may submit multiple files.

Using the API, ReVal can validate data and generally do anything that is possible via the web interface.


  • Flexible input format
  • Validation with:
  • Row-by-row feedback on validation results
  • Manage and track status of data submissions
  • Re-submit previous submissions
