# Eve Genie

A tool for making Eve schema generation easier.

Use case: You need to stand up an api quickly. You know what your data looks like in JSON but don’t yet know the syntax for Eve/Cerberus.

## Requirements

sudo pip install -r requirements.txt

## Use

### Cli

python geneve.py your_json_file

### In code

```python from evegenie import EveGenie eg = EveGenie(filename=’test.json’) # Or with open(‘test.json’, ‘r’) as ifile:

data = ifile.read()

eg = EveGenie(data=data) eg.write_file(‘mytest.settings.py’)


cat mytest.settings.py

user = {
‘schema’: {

‘name’: {‘type’: ‘string’}, ‘title’: {‘type’: ‘string’}, ‘age’: {‘type’: ‘integer’}, ‘alive’: {‘type’: ‘boolean’}, ‘inventory’: {‘type’: ‘list’}, ‘address’: {

‘type’: ‘dict’, ‘schema’: {

‘city’: {‘type’: ‘string’}, ‘state’: {‘type’: ‘string’}, ‘address’: {‘type’: ‘string’},





artifact = {
‘schema’: {

‘color’: {‘type’: ‘string’}, ‘cost’: {‘type’: ‘float’}, ‘stats’: {

‘type’: ‘dict’, ‘schema’: {

‘length’: {‘type’: ‘float’}, ‘weight’: {‘type’: ‘float’}, ‘power’: {‘type’: ‘integer’},


} ‘name’: {‘type’: ‘string’},



## Special evegenie strings

Certain strings passed in via the source json will be converted to eve schema types with sane defaults.

  • “fieldname”: “objectid:sample-entity” will add data_relation to sample-entity to the schema
  • “fieldname”: “0-100” will create an integer with a min of 0 and a max of 100
  • “fieldname”: “0.0-1.0” will create a float with a min of 0 and a max of 1
  • “fieldname”: {“allow_unknown”: true} will translate directly to fieldname that allows the unknown

## Test
