Getting started


Installation from PyPi:

pip install sanic-validation

Simple example

Code of the hello service:

from sanic import Sanic
from sanic.response import json
from sanic_validation import validate_json

app = Sanic()

schema = {'name': {'type': 'string', 'required': True}}

async def hello(request):
    return json({'message': 'Hello ' + request.json['name']})'')

An example of a bad request:

And the response:
