JSON models

https://badge.fury.io/py/jsonmodels.png https://travis-ci.org/beregond/jsonmodels.png?branch=master https://coveralls.io/repos/beregond/jsonmodels/badge.png

jsonmodels is library to make it easier for you to deal with structures that are converted to, or read from JSON.

Features

  • Fully tested with Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4 and PyPy.

  • Create Django-like models:

    from jsonmodels import models, fields, errors, validators
    
    
    class Cat(models.Base):
    
        name = fields.StringField(required=True)
        breed = fields.StringField()
    
    
    class Dog(models.Base):
    
        name = fields.StringField(required=True)
        age = fields.IntField()
    
    
    class Car(models.Base):
    
        registration_number = fields.StringField(required=True)
        engine_capacity = fields.FloatField()
        color = fields.StringField()
    
    
    class Person(models.Base):
    
        name = fields.StringField(required=True)
        surname = fields.StringField(required=True)
        car = fields.EmbeddedField(Car)
        pets = fields.ListField([Cat, Dog])
  • Access to values through attributes:

    >>> cat = Cat()
    >>> cat.populate(name='Garfield')
    >>> cat.name
    'Garfield'
    >>> cat.breed = 'mongrel'
    >>> cat.breed
    'mongrel'
  • Validate models:

    >>> person = Person(name='Chuck', surname='Norris')
    >>> person.validate()
    None
    
    >>> dog = Dog()
    >>> dog.validate()
    *** ValidationError: Field "name" is required!
  • Cast models to python struct and JSON:

    >>> cat = Cat(name='Garfield')
    >>> dog = Dog(name='Dogmeat', age=9)
    >>> car = Car(registration_number='ASDF 777', color='red')
    >>> person = Person(name='Johny', surname='Bravo', pets=[cat, dog])
    >>> person.car = car
    >>> person.to_struct()
    {
        'car': {
            'color': 'red',
            'registration_number': 'ASDF 777'
        },
        'surname': 'Bravo',
        'name': 'Johny',
        'pets': [
            {'name': 'Garfield'},
            {'age': 9, 'name': 'Dogmeat'}
        ]
    }
    
    >>> import json
    >>> person_json = json.dumps(person.to_struct())
  • You don't like to write JSON Schema? Let jsonmodels do it for you:

    >>> person = Person()
    >>> person.to_json_schema()
    {
        'additionalProperties': False,
        'required': ['surname', 'name'],
        'type': 'object',
        'properties': {
            'car': {
                'additionalProperties': False,
                'required': ['registration_number'],
                'type': 'object',
                'properties': {
                    'color': {'type': 'string'},
                    'engine_capacity': {'type': 'float'},
                    'registration_number': {'type': 'string'}
                }
            },
            'surname': {'type': 'string'},
            'name': {'type': 'string'},
            'pets': {
                'items': {
                    'oneOf': [
                        {
                            'additionalProperties': False,
                            'required': ['name'],
                            'type': 'object',
                            'properties': {
                                'breed': {'type': 'string'},
                                'name': {'type': 'string'}
                            }
                        },
                        {
                            'additionalProperties': False,
                            'required': ['name'],
                            'type': 'object',
                            'properties': {
                                'age': {'type': 'integer'},
                                'name': {'type': 'string'}
                            }
                        }
                    ]
                },
                'type': 'list'
            }
        }
    }
  • Validate models and use validators, that affect generated schema:

    >>> class Person(models.Base):
    ...
    ...     name = fields.StringField(
    ...         required=True,
    ...         validators=[
    ...             validators.Regex('^[A-Za-z]+$'),
    ...             validators.Length(3, 25),
    ...         ],
    ...     )
    ...     age = fields.IntField(
    ...         required=True,
    ...         validators=[
    ...             validators.Min(18),
    ...             validators.Max(101),
    ...         ]
    ...     )
    
    >>> person = Person()
    >>> person.age = 11
    >>> person.validate()
    *** ValidationError: '11' is lower than minimum ('18').
    
    >>> person.age = 19
    >>> person.name = 'Scott_'
    >>> person.validate()
    *** ValidationError: Value "Scott_" did not match pattern "^[A-Za-z]+$".
    
    >>> person.name = 'Scott'
    >>> person.validate()
    None
    
    >>> person.to_json_schema()
    {
        "additionalProperties": false,
        "properties": {
            "age": {
                "maximum": 101,
                "minimum": 18,
                "type": "integer"
            },
            "name": {
                "maxLength": 25,
                "minLength": 3,
                "pattern": "/^[A-Za-z]+$/",
                "type": "string"
            }
        },
        "required": [
            "age",
            "name"
        ],
        "type": "object"
    }

    For more information, please see topic about validation in documentation.

  • Compare JSON schemas:

    >>> from jsonmodels.utils import compare_schemas
    >>> schema1 = {'type': 'object'}
    >>> schema2 = {'type': 'list'}
    >>> compare_schemas(schema1, schema1)
    True
    >>> compare_schemas(schema1, schema2)
    False
