Package schema implements OpenAPI 3 compatible JSON Schema which can be generated from structs.

type MyObject struct {
	ID     string  `doc:"Object ID" readOnly:"true"`
	Rate   float64 `doc:"Rate of change" minimum:"0"`
	Coords []int   `doc:"X,Y coordinates" minItems:"2" maxItems:"2"`

generated, err := Generate(reflect.TypeOf(MyObject{}))
if err != nil {

const (
	TypeBoolean = "boolean"

	TypeString  = "string"
	TypeArray   = "array"
	TypeObject  = "object"

JSON Schema type constants

var ErrSchemaInvalid = errors.New("schema is invalid")

ErrSchemaInvalid is sent when there is a problem building the schema.


func F

func F(value float64) *float64

F returns a pointer to the given float64. Useful helper function for pointer schema validators like Maximum or Minimum.

func I

func I(value uint64) *uint64

I returns a pointer to the given int. Useful helper function for pointer schema validators like MaxLength or MinItems.


type Mode

type Mode int

Mode defines whether the schema is being generated for read or write mode. Read-only fields are dropped when in write mode, for example.

const (
	// ModeAll is for general purpose use and includes all fields.
	ModeAll Mode = iota
	// ModeRead is for HTTP HEAD & GET and will hide write-only fields.
	// ModeWrite is for HTTP POST, PUT, PATCH, DELETE and will hide
	// read-only fields.

Schema represents a JSON Schema which can be generated from Go structs

func Generate

func Generate(t reflect.Type) (*Schema, error)

Generate creates a JSON schema for a Go type. Struct field tags can be used to provide additional metadata such as descriptions and validation.

func GenerateFromField

func GenerateFromField(f reflect.StructField, mode Mode) (string, bool, *Schema, error)

GenerateFromField generates a schema for a single struct field. It returns the computed field name, whether it is optional, its schema, and any error which may have occurred.

func GenerateWithMode

func GenerateWithMode(t reflect.Type, mode Mode, schema *Schema) (*Schema, error)

GenerateWithMode creates a JSON schema for a Go type. Struct field tags can be used to provide additional metadata such as descriptions and validation. The mode can be all, read, or write. In read or write mode any field that is marked as the opposite will be excluded, e.g. a write-only field would not be included in read mode. If a schema is given as input, add to it, otherwise creates a new schema.

func (*Schema) HasValidation

func (s *Schema) HasValidation() bool

HasValidation returns true if at least one validator is set on the schema. This excludes the schema's type but includes most other fields and can be used to trigger additional slow validation steps when needed.

func (*Schema) RemoveProperty

func (s *Schema) RemoveProperty(name string)

RemoveProperty removes a property by name from the schema, making sure to also remove it from the required property set if present.
