Validation schemas#

Please see the validation schema guides for an introduction to this API and a list of examples.

class streamlink.plugin.api.validate.Schema(*schemas)#

Bases: AllSchema

The base class for creating validation schemas.

A wrapper for AllSchema with a wrapper method for validate() which by default raises PluginError on error.

validate(value, name='result', exception=<class 'streamlink.exceptions.PluginError'>)#
Parameters:
  • value (Any) --

  • name (str) --

  • exception (Type[Exception]) --

Return type:

Any

streamlink.plugin.api.validate.validate(schema, value)#

The core of the streamlink.plugin.api.validate module.

It validates the given input value and returns a value according to the specific validation rules of the schema.

If the validation fails, a ValidationError is raised with a detailed error message.

The schema can be any kind of object. Depending on the schema, different validation rules apply.

Simple schema objects like "abc" or 123 for example test the equality of value and schema and return value again, while type schema objects like str test whether value is an instance of schema. schema objects which are callable receive value as a single argument and must return a truthy value, otherwise the validation fails. These are just a few examples.

The validate module implements lots of special schemas, like validate.all or validate.any for example, which are schema containers that receive a sequence of sub-schemas as arguments and where each sub-schema then gets validated one after another.

validate.all requires each sub-schema to successfully validate. It passes the return value of each sub-schema to the next one and then returns the return value of the last sub-schema.

validate.any on the other hand requires at least one sub-schema to be valid and returns the return value of the first valid sub-schema. Any validation failures prior will be ignored, but at least one must succeed.

Other special schema cases for example are instances of sequences like list or tuple, or mappings like dict. Here, each sequence item or key-value mapping pair is validated against the input value and a new sequence/mapping object according to the schema validation is returned.

validate() should usually not be called directly when validating schemas. Instead, the wrapper method Schema.validate() of the main Schema class should be called. Other Streamlink APIs like the methods of the HTTPSession or the various streamlink.utils.parse functions for example expect this interface when the schema keyword is set, which allows for immediate validation of the data using a Schema object.

validate() is implemented using the stdlib's functools.singledispatch() decorator, where more specific schemas overload the default implementation with more validation logic.


By default, validate() compares value and schema for equality. This means that simple schema objects like booleans, strings, numbers, None, etc. are validated here, as well as anything unknown.

Example:

schema = validate.Schema(123)
assert schema.validate(123) == 123
assert schema.validate(123.0) == 123.0
schema.validate(456)  # raises ValidationError
schema.validate(None)  # raises ValidationError
Parameters:
  • schema (Any) -- Any kind of object not handled by a more specific validation function

  • value (Any) -- The input value

Raises:

ValidationError -- If value and schema are not equal

Returns:

Unmodified value

streamlink.plugin.api.validate._validate_type(schema, value)#

type validation.

Checks if value is an instance of schema.

Example:

schema = validate.Schema(int)
assert schema.validate(123) == 123
assert schema.validate(True) is True  # `bool` is a subclass of `int`
schema.validate("123")  # raises ValidationError

This function is included for documentation purposes only! (singledispatch overload)

Parameters:
  • schema (type) -- A type object

  • value (Any) -- The input value

Raises:

ValidationError -- If value is not an instance of schema

Returns:

Unmodified value

streamlink.plugin.api.validate._validate_callable(schema, value)#

Callable validation.

Validates a schema function where value gets passed as a single argument.

Must return a truthy value.

Example:

schema = validate.Schema(
    lambda val: val < 2,
)
assert schema.validate(1) == 1
schema.validate(2)  # raises ValidationError

This function is included for documentation purposes only! (singledispatch overload)

Parameters:
  • schema (Callable) -- A function with one argument

  • value (Any) -- The input value

Raises:

ValidationError -- If schema returns a non-truthy value

Returns:

Unmodified value

streamlink.plugin.api.validate._validate_sequence(schema, value)#

list, tuple, set and frozenset validation.

Each item of value gets validated against any of the items of schema.

Please note the difference between list and the ListSchema validation.

Example:

schema = validate.Schema([1, 2, 3])
assert schema.validate([]) == []
assert schema.validate([1, 2]) == [1, 2]
assert schema.validate([3, 2, 1]) == [3, 2, 1]
schema.validate({1, 2, 3})  # raises ValidationError
schema.validate([1, 2, 3, 4])  # raises ValidationError

This function is included for documentation purposes only! (singledispatch overload)

Parameters:
  • schema (Union[list, tuple, set, frozenset]) -- A sequence of validation schemas

  • value (Any) -- The input value

Raises:

ValidationError -- If value is not an instance of the schema's own type

Returns:

A new sequence of the same type as schema with each item of value being validated

streamlink.plugin.api.validate._validate_dict(schema, value)#

dict validation.

Each key-value pair of schema gets validated against the respective key-value pair of value.

Additional keys in value are ignored and not included in the validation result.

If a schema key is an instance of OptionalSchema, then value may omit it.

If one of the schema's keys is a type, AllSchema, AnySchema, TransformSchema, or UnionSchema, then all key-value pairs of value are validated against the schema's key-value pair.

Example:

schema = validate.Schema({
    "key": str,
    validate.optional("opt"): 123,
})
assert schema.validate({"key": "val", "other": 123}) == {"key": "val"}
assert schema.validate({"key": "val", "opt": 123}) == {"key": "val", "opt": 123}
schema.validate(None)  # raises ValidationError
schema.validate({})  # raises ValidationError
schema.validate({"key": 123})  # raises ValidationError
schema.validate({"key": "val", "opt": 456})  # raises ValidationError
schema = validate.Schema({
    validate.any("a", "b"): int,
})
assert schema.validate({}) == {}
assert schema.validate({"a": 1}) == {"a": 1}
assert schema.validate({"b": 2}) == {"b": 2}
assert schema.validate({"a": 1, "b": 2}) == {"a": 1, "b": 2}
schema.validate({"a": 1, "b": 2, "other": 0})  # raises ValidationError
schema.validate({"a": None})  # raises ValidationError

This function is included for documentation purposes only! (singledispatch overload)

Parameters:
  • schema (dict) -- A dict

  • value (Any) -- The input value

Raises:
Returns:

A new dict

streamlink.plugin.api.validate._validate_pattern(schema, value)#

re.Pattern validation.

Calls the re.Pattern.search() method on the schema pattern.

Please note the difference between re.Pattern and the RegexSchema validation.

Example:

schema = validate.Schema(
    re.compile(r"^Hello, (?P<name>\w+)!$"),
)
assert schema.validate("Does not match") is None
assert schema.validate("Hello, world!")["name"] == "world"
schema.validate(123)  # raises ValidationError
schema.validate(b"Hello, world!")  # raises ValidationError

This function is included for documentation purposes only! (singledispatch overload)

Parameters:
  • schema (re.Pattern) -- A compiled re.Pattern object (re.compile() return value)

  • value (Any) -- The input value

Raises:
Returns:

None if value doesn't match schema, or the resulting re.Match object

The input can be anything that implements __getitem__(), as well as lxml.etree.Element objects where element attributes are looked up.

Returns the default value if item was not found.

Unless strict is set to True, the item can be a tuple of items for a recursive lookup. In this case, the default value is only returned if the leaf-input-object doesn't contain the current item.

Example:

schema = validate.Schema(
    validate.get("name", default="unknown"),
)
assert schema.validate({"name": "user"}) == "user"
assert schema.validate(re.match(r"Hello, (?P<name>\w+)!", "Hello, user!")) == "user"

    validate.regex(re.compile(r"Hello, (?P<name>\w+)!")),
)
assert schema.validate("Hello, world!")["name"] == "world"
schema.validate("Does not match")  # raises ValidationError
schema.validate(123)  # raises ValidationError
schema.validate(b"Hello, world!")  # raises ValidationError
schema = validate.Schema(
    validate.regex(re.compile(r"Hello, (?P<name>\w+)!"), method="findall"),
)
assert schema.validate("Hello, userA! Hello, userB!") == ["userA", "userB"]
assert schema.validate("Does not match") == []  # findall does not return None
Parameters:
  • pattern (Pattern) -- A compiled pattern (re.compile() return value)

  • method (Literal['search', 'match', 'fullmatch', 'findall', 'split', 'sub', 'subn']) -- The pattern's method which will be called when validating

Raises:
  • ValidationError -- If the input is not an instance of str or bytes

  • ValidationError -- If the type of the input doesn't match the pattern's str/bytes type

  • ValidationError -- If the return value of the chosen regex pattern method is None

class streamlink.plugin.api.validate._schemas.XmlElementSchema(tag=None, text=None, attrib=None, tail=None)#

Validate an XML element.

Example:

schema = validate.Schema(
    validate.xml_element(
        tag="foo",
        attrib={"bar": str},
        text=validate.transform(str.upper),
    ),
)
elem = lxml.etree.XML("""<foo bar="baz">qux</foo>""")
new_elem = schema.validate(elem)
assert new_elem is not elem
assert new_elem.tag == "foo"
assert new_elem.attrib == {"bar": "baz"}
assert new_elem.text == "QUX"
assert new_elem.tail is None
schema.validate(123)  # raises ValidationError
schema.validate(lxml.etree.XML("""<unknown/>"""))  # raises ValidationError
Parameters:
  • tag (Any | None) -- Optional element tag validation

  • text (Any | None) -- Optional element text validation

  • attrib (Any | None) -- Optional element attributes validation

  • tail (Any | None) -- Optional element tail validation

Raises:

ValidationError -- If value is not an lxml.etree.Element

Returns:

A new lxml.etree.Element object, including a deep-copy of the input's child nodes, with optionally validated tag, attrib mapping, text or tail.
