go-tagexpr report card GoDoc

An interesting go struct tag expression syntax for field validation, etc.

Usage

  • Validator: A powerful validator that supports struct tag expression

  • Binding: A powerful HTTP request parameters binder that supports struct tag expression

Feature

  • Support for a variety of common operator
  • Support for accessing arrays, slices, members of the dictionary
  • Support access to any field in the current structure
  • Support access to nested fields, non-exported fields, etc.
  • Support registers function expression
  • Built-in len, sprintf, regexp functions
  • Support single mode and multiple mode to define expression
  • Parameter check subpackage
  • Use offset pointers to directly take values, better performance
  • Required go version ≥1.9

Example

package tagexpr_test

import (
	"fmt"

	tagexpr "github.com/bytedance/go-tagexpr"
)

func Example() {
	type T struct {
		A  int             `tagexpr:"$<0||$>=100"`
		B  string          `tagexpr:"len($)>1 && regexp('^\\w*$')"`
		C  bool            `tagexpr:"expr1:(f.g)$>0 && $; expr2:'C must be true when T.f.g>0'"`
		d  []string        `tagexpr:"@:len($)>0 && $[0]=='D'; msg:sprintf('invalid d: %v',$)"`
		e  map[string]int  `tagexpr:"len($)==$['len']"`
		e2 map[string]*int `tagexpr:"len($)==$['len']"`
		f  struct {
			g int `tagexpr:"$"`
		}
	}

	vm := tagexpr.New("tagexpr")
	t := &T{
		A:  107,
		B:  "abc",
		C:  true,
		d:  []string{"x", "y"},
		e:  map[string]int{"len": 1},
		e2: map[string]*int{"len": new(int)},
		f: struct {
			g int `tagexpr:"$"`
		}{1},
	}

	tagExpr, err := vm.Run(t)
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	fmt.Println(tagExpr.Eval("A"))
	fmt.Println(tagExpr.Eval("B"))
	fmt.Println(tagExpr.Eval("C@expr1"))
	fmt.Println(tagExpr.Eval("C@expr2"))
	if !tagExpr.Eval("d").(bool) {
		fmt.Println(tagExpr.Eval("d@msg"))
	}
	fmt.Println(tagExpr.Eval("e"))
	fmt.Println(tagExpr.Eval("e2"))
	fmt.Println(tagExpr.Eval("f.g"))

	// Output:
	// true
	// true
	// true
	// C must be true when T.f.g>0
	// invalid d: [x y]
	// true
	// false
	// 1
}

Syntax

Struct tag syntax spec:

type T struct {
	// Single model
    Field1 T1 `tagName:"expression"`
	// Multiple model
    Field2 T2 `tagName:"exprName:expression; [exprName2:expression2;]..."`
	// Omit it
    Field3 T3 `tagName:"-"`
    // Omit it when it is nil
    Field4 T4 `tagName:"?"`
    ...
}

NOTE: The exprName under the same struct field cannot be the same!

Operator or Operand Explain
true false boolean
0 0.0 float64 "0"
'' String
\\' Escape ' delims in string
\" Escape " delims in string
nil nil, undefined
! not, suitable for bool, string, float64, nil, $ and ()
+ Digital addition or string splicing
- Digital subtraction or negative
* Digital multiplication
/ Digital division
% division remainder, as: float64(int64(a)%int64(b))
== eq
!= ne
> gt
>= ge
< lt
<= le
&& Logic and
|| Logic or
() Expression group
(X)$ Struct field value named X
(X.Y)$ Struct field value named X.Y
$ Shorthand for (X)$, omit (X) to indicate current struct field value
(X)$['A'] Map value with key A or struct A sub-field in the struct field X
(X)$[0] The 0th element or sub-field of the struct field X(type: map, slice, array, struct)
len((X)$) Built-in function len, the length of struct field X
mblen((X)$) the length of string field X (character number)
regexp('^\\w*$', (X)$) Regular match the struct field X, return boolean
regexp('^\\w*$') Regular match the current struct field, return boolean
sprintf('X value: %v', (X)$) fmt.Sprintf, format the value of struct field X

Operator priority(high -> low):

  • () ! bool float64 string nil
  • * / %
  • + -
  • < <= > >=
  • == !=
  • &&
  • ||

Field Selector

field_lv1.field_lv2...field_lvn

Expression Selector

  • If expression is single model or exprName is @:
field_lv1.field_lv2...field_lvn
  • If expression is multiple model and exprName is not @:
field_lv1.field_lv2...field_lvn@exprName
