validation

Simple validation lib for checking types.

install

npm install validation

usage

validation.isType(value, type)

Checks for a valid value of the given type.

validation.isType(new Date(), 'date')         // true
validation.isType([1,2,3], 'array')           // true
validation.isType({}, 'object')               // true
validation.isType('foobar', 'string')         // true

Opinionated to make input validation simple. For example new Date(Infinity) is a date, but an invalid type of date. Also NaN is not a 'number' even though typeof NaN === 'number'.

validation.isType(new Date(Infinity), 'date') // false
validation.isType({length: 7}, 'array')       // false
validation.isType(NaN, 'number')              // false
validation.isType('123', 'number')            // false

See tests for more examples.

validation.exists(value)

Checks if a value exists.

validation.exists('foobar')                   // true
validation.exists(function() {})              // true
validation.exists(0)                          // true
validation.exists(-1)                         // true
validation.exists(null)                       // false
validation.exists(undefined)                  // false
validation.exists(NaN)                        // false
