Validateur 1.5.0 Is Released


Validateur is a functional validations library inspired by Ruby’s ActiveModel. Validateur 1.5 introduces ways to customize error messages.

Changes between Validateur 1.4.0 and 1.5.0

Optional messages in built-in validators

All built-in validators but length-of accept optional messages for all cases. Their formatting is fixed and based in default ones. For example:

((inclusion-of :genre :in #{"trance", "dnb"} :message "debe pertenecer a:")
 {:genre "pasodoble"})
;; [false {:genre #{"debe pertenecer a: trance, dnb"}}]

Optional function callback to parametrize the construction of messages

All built-in validators accept an optional function callback which will be called by the validator to build the returned error message. The main goal is to facilitate the inclusion of i18n in messages (like previous one but in a more flexible way). For example:

((inclusion-of :genre :in #{"trance", "dnb"}
               :message-fn (fn [validator map prop & args]
                              [validator map prop args]))
 {:genre "pasodoble"})
;; [false {:genre #{[:inclusion {:genre "pasodoble"} :genre (#{"trance" "dnb"})]}}]

We recommend all users to upgrade to 1.5.0.
