assert_json

A easy and declarative way to test JSON input in Rust. assert_json is a Rust macro heavily inspired by serde json macro. Instead of creating a JSON value from a JSON literal, assert_json makes sure the JSON input conforms to the validation rules specified.

assert_json also output beautiful error message when a validation error occurs.

How to use

use assert_json::assert_json;
use assert_json::validators;

#[test]
fn test_json_ok() {
    let json = r#"
        {
            "status": "success",
            "result": {
                "id": 5,
                "name": "charlesvdv"
            }
        }
    "#;

    let name = "charlesvdv";

    assert_json!(json, {
            "status": "success",
            "result": {
                "id": validators::u64(|&v| if v > 0 { Ok(())} else { Err(String::from("id should be greater than 0")) }),
                "name": name,
            }
        }
    );
}

Any variables or expressions are interpoled as validation rules matching the type and value of the variable/expression passed to the macro.

Now, if JSON input is changed to something incorrect like this:

    let json = r#"
        {
            "status": "success",
            "result": {
                "id": 5,
-                "name": "charlesvdv"
+                "name": "incorrect name"
            }
        }
    "#;

You will get an comprehensible error message like this one:

thread 'xxxx' panicked at 'error: Invalid JSON
  ┌─ :4:174"name": "incorrect name"^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Invalid value. Expected "charlesvdv" but got "incorrect name".

Custom validators

A set of validators are already implemented in the validators module. If required, one can also creates its own validation routine by implementing the Validator trait.

use assert_json::{assert_json, Error, Validator, Value};

fn optional_string(expected: Option<String>) -> impl Validator {
    OptionalStringValidator { expected }
}

/// Matches a null JSON value if expected is None, else check if the strings
/// are equals
struct OptionalStringValidator {
    expected: Option<String>,
}

impl Validator for OptionalStringValidator {
    fn validate<'a>(&self, value: &'a Value) -> Result<(), Error<'a>> {
        if let Some(expected_str) = &self.expected {
            let string_value = value
                .as_str()
                .ok_or_else(|| Error::InvalidType(value, String::from("string")))?;

            if expected_str == string_value {
                Ok(())
            } else {
                Err(Error::InvalidValue(value, expected_str.clone()))
            }
        } else {
            value.as_null()
                .ok_or_else(|| Error::InvalidType(value, String::from("null")))
        }
    }
}

let json = r#"
    {
        "key": "value",
        "none": null
    }
"#;
assert_json!(json, {
    "key": optional_string(Some(String::from("value"))),
    "none": optional_string(None),
});
