IN SHORT
--------

``jsonfromschema`` is used to generate JSON data (file *.json) from JSON Schema (*.json, see https://json-schema.org)
Project is written in Python for Python purposes, but it is also stand-alone tool.

NON-INSTALL
-----------

.. code-block:: bash

    git clone git@github.com:NIC-MichalLabedzki/jsonfromschema.git

You can run it from sources without any dependancies* (python and some modules delivered with it)

.. code-block:: bash

    python ./jsonfromschema

See:

.. code-block:: bash

    python ./jsonfromschema --help

See CLI section for more details.


INSTALLATION
------------

.. code-block:: bash

    pip install jsonfromschema

or

.. code-block:: bash

    pip install -e git@github.com:NIC-MichalLabedzki/jsonfromschema.git

or

.. code-block:: bash

    pip install -e https://github.com/NIC-MichalLabedzki/jsonfromschema.git

or

.. code-block:: bash

    git clone git@github.com:NIC-MichalLabedzki/jsonfromschema.git
    cd jsonfromschema
    python setup.py # or pip install -e .


INTERFACE
---------

There are two kind of interfaces: ``CLI`` and ``Python module``.

CLI
~~~

CLI is Command Line Interface. So you have tool called: jsonfromschema

.. code-block:: bash

    $ jsonfromschema --help
    usage: jsonfromschema [-h] [-v] [-w [VALIDATE]] [--no-default] [--no-examples] [--maximum]
             [--subschema SUBSCHEMA] [--from-python-package FROM_PYTHON_PACKAGE]
             schema output

    Generate JSON data file (*.json) from JSON Schema

    positional arguments:
    schema                path to JSON Schema file or python packages resource
                            [--from-python-package]
    output                path to JSON data output file

    optional arguments:
    -h, --help            show this help message and exit
    -v, --verbose         verbose mode
    -w [VALIDATE], --validate [VALIDATE]
                            use jsonschema to validate output and check if schema
                            is valid [3,4,6,7 (default)]
    --no-default          do not use 'default' fields in jsonschema
    --no-examples         do not use 'default' fields in jsonschema
    --maximum             generate as complex json as possible (by
                            implementation); for example ignore "required" and
                            favor "object" over less complicated fields
    --subschema SUBSCHEMA
                            extract subschema only by this json fragment pointer
    --from-python-package FROM_PYTHON_PACKAGE
                            'schema' is path to python package resource, this
                            option needs package name as argument


Some examples:

.. code-block:: bash

    $ jsonfromschema input_schema.json output_json_data.json

Verbose:

.. code-block:: bash

    $ jsonfromschema input_schema.json output_json_data.json -v

Validate output:
It use "jsonschema" module (pip install jsonschema) to validate output json to be valid with given schema.

.. code-block:: bash

    $ jsonfromschema input_schema.json output_json_data.json -w

Generate subschema:
Use JSON pointer (schema side) to generate only part of schema:

.. code-block:: bash

    $ jsonfromschema tests/test_schema_main.json.json output.json -w --subschema=/properties/string_default
    $ cat output.json
    "foo"

Use JSON Schema resources from some python packages:

.. code-block:: bash

    $ jsonfromschema ../tests/test_schema_main.json output.json -vw --subschema=/properties/string_default --from-python-package jsonfromschema
    $ cat output.json
    "foo"

Python Module
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

``API is not stable right now.``

.. code-block:: python

    import jsonfromschema.lib

.. code-block:: python

    generate_dict_from_text(root_name, schema_text, optional_args=None)
    generate_dict_from_file(schema_file, optional_args=None)
    generate_dict_from_package(package, path, optional_args=None)


optional_args:
    Default values are:

.. code-block:: python

        {
        'verbose': False,
        'no-default': False,
        'no-examples': False,
        'maximum': False,
        'pkg_resource_root': None,
        'subschema': None,
        }

Where:
    ``pkg_resource_root`` is package name, for example "jsonschema"

Changelog
---------

v0.1.4:
    1. try use --maximum value for more json types
    2. remove anoying python version from cli output

TODO

1. JsonSchema Draft-7 support (in progress)
2. Check Draft-4 support
