Package conversion provides go object versioning.

Specifically, conversion provides a way for you to define multiple versions of the same object. You may write functions which implement conversion logic, but for the fields which did not change, copying is automated. This makes it easy to modify the structures you use in memory without affecting the format you store on disk or respond to in your external API calls.

var DefaultNameFunc = func(t reflect.Type) string { return t.Name() }


func Convert_Slice_byte_To_Slice_byte

func Convert_Slice_byte_To_Slice_byte(in *[]byte, out *[]byte, s Scope) error

Convert_Slice_byte_To_Slice_byte prevents recursing into every byte

func EnforcePtr

func EnforcePtr(obj interface{}) (reflect.Value, error)

EnforcePtr ensures that obj is a pointer of some sort. Returns a reflect.Value of the dereferenced pointer, ensuring that it is settable/addressable. Returns an error if this is not possible.


type Cloner

type Cloner struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

Cloner knows how to copy one type to another.

func NewCloner

func NewCloner() *Cloner

NewCloner creates a new Cloner object.

func (*Cloner) DeepCopy

func (c *Cloner) DeepCopy(in interface{}) (interface{}, error)

DeepCopy will perform a deep copy of a given object.

func (*Cloner) RegisterDeepCopyFunc

func (c *Cloner) RegisterDeepCopyFunc(deepCopyFunc interface{}) error

RegisterGeneratedDeepCopyFunc registers a copying func with the Cloner. deepCopyFunc must take three parameters: a type input, a pointer to a type output, and a pointer to Cloner. It should return an error.

Example: c.RegisterGeneratedDeepCopyFunc(

func(in Pod, out *Pod, c *Cloner) error {
        // deep copy logic...
        return nil

func (*Cloner) RegisterGeneratedDeepCopyFunc

func (c *Cloner) RegisterGeneratedDeepCopyFunc(fn GeneratedDeepCopyFunc) error

Similar to RegisterDeepCopyFunc, but registers deep copy function that were automatically generated.

type ConversionFuncs

type ConversionFuncs struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

func NewConversionFuncs

func NewConversionFuncs() ConversionFuncs

func (ConversionFuncs) Add

func (c ConversionFuncs) Add(fns ...interface{}) error

Add adds the provided conversion functions to the lookup table - they must have the signature `func(type1, type2, Scope) error`. Functions are added in the order passed and will override previously registered pairs.

func (ConversionFuncs) Merge

Merge returns a new ConversionFuncs that contains all conversions from both other and c, with other conversions taking precedence.

type Converter

type Converter struct {

	// If non-nil, will be called to print helpful debugging info. Quite verbose.
	Debug DebugLogger
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

Converter knows how to convert one type to another.

func NewConverter

func NewConverter(nameFn NameFunc) *Converter

NewConverter creates a new Converter object.

func (*Converter) AddGenericConversionFunc

func (c *Converter) AddGenericConversionFunc(fn GenericConversionFunc)

AddGenericConversionFunc adds a function that accepts the ConversionFunc call pattern (for two conversion types) to the converter. These functions are checked first during a normal conversion, but are otherwise not called. Use AddConversionFuncs when registering typed conversions.

func (*Converter) ConversionFuncValue

func (c *Converter) ConversionFuncValue(inType, outType reflect.Type) (reflect.Value, bool)

func (*Converter) Convert

func (c *Converter) Convert(src, dest interface{}, flags FieldMatchingFlags, meta *Meta) error

Convert will translate src to dest if it knows how. Both must be pointers. If no conversion func is registered and the default copying mechanism doesn't work on this type pair, an error will be returned. Read the comments on the various FieldMatchingFlags constants to understand what the 'flags' parameter does. 'meta' is given to allow you to pass information to conversion functions, it is not used by Convert() other than storing it in the scope. Not safe for objects with cyclic references!

func (*Converter) DefaultConvert

func (c *Converter) DefaultConvert(src, dest interface{}, flags FieldMatchingFlags, meta *Meta) error

DefaultConvert will translate src to dest if it knows how. Both must be pointers. No conversion func is used. If the default copying mechanism doesn't work on this type pair, an error will be returned. Read the comments on the various FieldMatchingFlags constants to understand what the 'flags' parameter does. 'meta' is given to allow you to pass information to conversion functions, it is not used by DefaultConvert() other than storing it in the scope. Not safe for objects with cyclic references!

func (*Converter) DefaultMeta

func (c *Converter) DefaultMeta(t reflect.Type) (FieldMatchingFlags, *Meta)

DefaultMeta returns the conversion FieldMappingFunc and meta for a given type.

func (*Converter) HasConversionFunc

func (c *Converter) HasConversionFunc(inType, outType reflect.Type) bool

func (*Converter) IsConversionIgnored

func (c *Converter) IsConversionIgnored(inType, outType reflect.Type) bool

IsConversionIgnored returns true if the specified objects should be dropped during conversion.

func (*Converter) RegisterConversionFunc

func (c *Converter) RegisterConversionFunc(conversionFunc interface{}) error

RegisterConversionFunc registers a conversion func with the Converter. conversionFunc must take three parameters: a pointer to the input type, a pointer to the output type, and a conversion.Scope (which should be used if recursive conversion calls are desired). It must return an error.

Example: c.RegisterConversionFunc(

func(in *Pod, out *v1.Pod, s Scope) error {
        // conversion logic...
        return nil

func (*Converter) RegisterDefaultingFunc

func (c *Converter) RegisterDefaultingFunc(defaultingFunc interface{}) error

RegisterDefaultingFunc registers a value-defaulting func with the Converter. defaultingFunc must take one parameters: a pointer to the input type.

Example: c.RegisteDefaultingFunc(

func(in *v1.Pod) {
        // defaulting logic...

func (*Converter) RegisterGeneratedConversionFunc

func (c *Converter) RegisterGeneratedConversionFunc(conversionFunc interface{}) error

Similar to RegisterConversionFunc, but registers conversion function that were automatically generated.

func (*Converter) RegisterIgnoredConversion

func (c *Converter) RegisterIgnoredConversion(from, to interface{}) error

RegisterIgnoredConversion registers a "no-op" for conversion, where any requested conversion between from and to is ignored.

func (*Converter) RegisterInputDefaults

func (c *Converter) RegisterInputDefaults(in interface{}, fn FieldMappingFunc, defaultFlags FieldMatchingFlags) error

RegisterInputDefaults registers a field name mapping function, used when converting from maps to structs. Inputs to the conversion methods are checked for this type and a mapping applied automatically if the input matches in. A set of default flags for the input conversion may also be provided, which will be used when no explicit flags are requested.

func (*Converter) SetStructFieldCopy

func (c *Converter) SetStructFieldCopy(srcFieldType interface{}, srcFieldName string, destFieldType interface{}, destFieldName string) error

SetStructFieldCopy registers a correspondence. Whenever a struct field is encountered which has a type and name matching srcFieldType and srcFieldName, it wil be copied into the field in the destination struct matching destFieldType & Name, if such a field exists. May be called multiple times, even for the same source field & type--all applicable copies will be performed.

func (*Converter) WithConversions

func (c *Converter) WithConversions(fns ConversionFuncs) *Converter

WithConversions returns a Converter that is a copy of c but with the additional fns merged on top.

type DebugLogger

type DebugLogger interface {
	Logf(format string, args ...interface{})

DebugLogger allows you to get debugging messages if necessary.

type Equalities

type Equalities struct {

The code for this type must be located in third_party, since it forks from go std lib. But for convenience, we expose the type here, too.

func EqualitiesOrDie

func EqualitiesOrDie(funcs ...interface{}) Equalities

For convenience, panics on errors

type FieldMappingFunc

type FieldMappingFunc func(key string, sourceTag, destTag reflect.StructTag) (source string, dest string)

FieldMappingFunc can convert an input field value into different values, depending on the value of the source or destination struct tags.

type FieldMatchingFlags

type FieldMatchingFlags int

FieldMatchingFlags contains a list of ways in which struct fields could be copied. These constants may be | combined.

const (
	// Loop through destination fields, search for matching source
	// field to copy it from. Source fields with no corresponding
	// destination field will be ignored. If SourceToDest is
	// specified, this flag is ignored. If neither is specified,
	// or no flags are passed, this flag is the default.
	DestFromSource FieldMatchingFlags = 0
	// Loop through source fields, search for matching dest field
	// to copy it into. Destination fields with no corresponding
	// source field will be ignored.
	SourceToDest FieldMatchingFlags = 1 << iota
	// Don't treat it as an error if the corresponding source or
	// dest field can't be found.
	// Don't require type names to match.

func (FieldMatchingFlags) IsSet

IsSet returns true if the given flag or combination of flags is set.

type GeneratedDeepCopyFunc

type GeneratedDeepCopyFunc struct {
	Fn     func(in interface{}, out interface{}, c *Cloner) error
	InType reflect.Type

GeneratedDeepCopyFunc bundles an untyped generated deep-copy function of a type with a reflection type object used as a key to lookup the deep-copy function.

type GenericConversionFunc

type GenericConversionFunc func(a, b interface{}, scope Scope) (bool, error)

type Meta

type Meta struct {
	// KeyNameMapping is an optional function which may map the listed key (field name)
	// into a source and destination value.
	KeyNameMapping FieldMappingFunc
	// Context is an optional field that callers may use to pass info to conversion functions.
	Context interface{}

Meta is supplied by Scheme, when it calls Convert.

type NameFunc

type NameFunc func(t reflect.Type) string

type Scope

type Scope interface {
	// Call Convert to convert sub-objects. Note that if you call it with your own exact
	// parameters, you'll run out of stack space before anything useful happens.
	Convert(src, dest interface{}, flags FieldMatchingFlags) error

	// DefaultConvert performs the default conversion, without calling a conversion func
	// on the current stack frame. This makes it safe to call from a conversion func.
	DefaultConvert(src, dest interface{}, flags FieldMatchingFlags) error

	// If registered, returns a function applying defaults for objects of a given type.
	// Used for automatically generating conversion functions.
	DefaultingInterface(inType reflect.Type) (interface{}, bool)

	// SrcTags and DestTags contain the struct tags that src and dest had, respectively.
	// If the enclosing object was not a struct, then these will contain no tags, of course.
	SrcTag() reflect.StructTag
	DestTag() reflect.StructTag

	// Flags returns the flags with which the conversion was started.
	Flags() FieldMatchingFlags

	// Meta returns any information originally passed to Convert.
	Meta() *Meta

Scope is passed to conversion funcs to allow them to continue an ongoing conversion. If multiple converters exist in the system, Scope will allow you to use the correct one from a conversion function--that is, the one your conversion function was called by.
