🔗 TypedStruct + Domo combo in example_typed_integrations app

Description

Used in a struct's module, the library adds constructor, validation, and reflection functions. When called, constructor and validation functions guarantee the following:

  • A struct or a group of nested structs conforms to their t() types.
  • The struct's data consistently follows the business rules given by type-associated precondition functions.

If the conditions described above are not met, the constructor and validation functions return an error.

The business rule expressed via the precondition function can be shared across all structs referencing the appropriate type.

In terms of Domain Driven Design, types and associated precondition functions define the invariants relating structs to each other.

Tour

Let's say that we have a LineItem and PurchaseOrder structs with relating invariant that is the sum of line item amounts should be less then order's approved limit. That can be expressed like the following:

defmodule LineItem do
  use Domo

  defstruct amount: 0

  @type t :: %__MODULE__{amount: non_neg_integer()}
end

defmodule PurchaseOrder do
  use Domo

  defstruct id: 1000, approved_limit: 200, items: []

  @type id :: non_neg_integer()
  precond(id: &(1000 <= &1 and &1 <= 5000))

  @type t :: %__MODULE__{
          id: id(),
          approved_limit: pos_integer(),
          items: [LineItem.t()]
        }
  precond(t: &validate_invariants/1)

  defp validate_invariants(po) do
    amounts = po.items |> Enum.map(& &1.amount) |> Enum.sum()

    if amounts <= po.approved_limit do
      :ok
    else
      {:error, "Sum of line item amounts (#{amounts}) should be <= to approved limit (#{po.approved_limit})."}
    end
  end
end

Then PurchaseOrder struct can be constructed consistently with functions generated by Domo like the following:

PurchaseOrder.new()
{:ok, %PurchaseOrder{approved_limit: 200, id: 1000, items: []}}

The constructor function takes any Enumerable as the input value:

{:ok, po} = PurchaseOrder.new(%{approved_limit: 250})
{:ok, %PurchaseOrder{approved_limit: 250, id: 1000, items: []}}

It returns the descriptive keyword list if there is an error in input arguments. And it validates nested structs automatically:

PurchaseOrder.new(id: 500, items: [%LineItem{amount: -5}])
{:error,
 [
   items: "Invalid value [%LineItem{amount: -5}] for field :items of %PurchaseOrder{}.
    Expected the value matching the [%LineItem{}] type.
    Underlying errors:
       - The element at index 0 has value %LineItem{amount: -5} that is invalid.
       - Value of field :amount is invalid due to Invalid value -5 for field :amount
         of %LineItem{}. Expected the value matching the non_neg_integer() type.",
   id: "Invalid value 500 for field :id of %PurchaseOrder{}. Expected the
    value matching the non_neg_integer() type. And a true value from
    the precondition function \"&(1000 <= &1 and &1 <= 5000)\"
    defined for PurchaseOrder.id() type."
 ]}

The returned errors are verbose and are intended for debugging purposes. See the Error messages for a user section below for more options.

The manually updated struct can be validated like the following:

po
|> Map.put(:items, [LineItem.new!(amount: 150)])
|> PurchaseOrder.ensure_type()
{:ok, %PurchaseOrder{approved_limit: 200, id: 1000, items: [%LineItem{amount: 150}]}}

Domo returns the error if the precondition function attached to the t() type that validates invariants for the struct as a whole fails:

updated_po = %{po | items: [LineItem.new!(amount: 180), LineItem.new!(amount: 100)]}
PurchaseOrder.ensure_type(updated_po)
{:error, [t: "Sum of line item amounts should be <= to approved limit"]}

Getting the list of the required fields of the struct that have type other then nil or any is like that:

PurchaseOrder.required_fields()
[:approved_limit, :id, :items]

See the Callbacks section for more details about functions added to the struct.

Error messages for a user

It's possible to attach error messages to types with the precond macro to display them later to the user. To filter such kinds of messages, pass the maybe_filter_precond_errors: true option to Domo generated functions like that:

defmodule Book do
  use Domo

  defstruct [:title, :pages]

  @type title :: String.t()
  precond title: &(if String.length(&1) > 1, do: :ok, else: {:error, "Book title is required."})

  @type pages :: pos_integer()
  precond pages: &(if &1 > 2, do: :ok, else: {:error, "Book should have more then 3 pages. Given (#{&1})."})

  @type t :: %__MODULE__{title: nil | title(), pages: nil | pages()}
end

defmodule Shelf do
  use Domo

  defstruct books: []

  @type t :: %__MODULE__{books: [Book.t()]}
end

defmodule PublicLibrary do
  use Domo

  defstruct shelves: []

  @type t :: %__MODULE__{shelves: [Shelf.t()]}
end

library = struct!(PublicLibrary, %{shelves: [struct!(Shelf, %{books: [struct!(Book, %{title: "", pages: 1})]})]})

PublicLibrary.ensure_type(library, maybe_filter_precond_errors: true)
{:error,
 [
   shelves: [
     "Book title is required.",
     "Book should have more then 3 pages. Given (1)."
   ]
]}

That output contains only a flattened list of precondition error messages from the deeply nested structure.

Compile-time and Run-time validations

At the project's compile-time, Domo performs the following checks:

  • It automatically validates that the default values given with defstruct/1 conform to struct's type and fulfill preconditions (can be disabled, see __using__/1 for more details).

  • It ensures that the struct using Domo built with new(!)/1 function to be a default argument for a function or a default value for a struct's field matches its type and preconditions.

At run-time, Domo validates structs matching their t() types.

Domo compiles TypeEnsurer module from struct's t() type to do all kinds of validations. There is a generated function with pattern matchings and guards for each struct's field. Constructor and validation functions of the struct delegate the work to the appropriate TypeEnsurer module.

After the compilation, the flow of control of the nested StructA validation can look like the following:

+--------------------+
| PurchaseOrder      |     +---------------------------+
|                    |     | PurchaseOrder.TypeEnsurer |
| new(!)/1 ----------|--_  |                           |
| ensure_type(!)/1 --|-----|-> ensure_field_type/1     |
+--------------------+     |   private functions       |
                           +----|----------------------+
                                |
+-----------------------+       |
| LineItem              |       |  +-------------------------+
|                       |       |  | LineItem.TypeEnsurer    |
| new(!)/1              |       |  |                         |
| ensure_type(!)/1      |       +--|-> ensure_field_type/1   |
+-----------------------+          |   private functions     |
                                   +-------------------------+

In interactive mode (iex / livebook) Domo generates TypeEnsurer module dynamically as the last step of struct's module definition.

In mix compile mode Domo generates all TypeEnsurer modules after elixir compiler finishes its job. The generated code can be found in _build/MIX_ENV/domo_generated_code folder. However, that is for information purposes only. The following compilation will overwrite all changes there.

Depending types tracking

Let's suppose a structure field's type depends on a type defined in another module. When the latter type or its precondition changes, Domo recompiles the former module automatically to update its TypeEnsurer to keep the type validation up to date.

Domo tracks type-depending modules and touches appropriate files during compilation.

That works for any number of intermediate modules between the module defining the struct's field and the module defining the field's final type.

Integration with Ecto

Ecto schema changeset can be automatically validated to conform to t() type and associated preconditions. Then the changeset function can be like the following:

defmodule Customer do
  use Ecto.Schema
  use Domo, skip_defaults: true

  import Ecto.Changeset
  import Domo.Changeset

  schema "customers" do
    field :first_name, :string
    field :last_name, :string
    field :birth_date, :date

    timestamps()
  end

  @type t :: %__MODULE__{
          first_name: String.t(),
          last_name: String.t(),
          birth_date: Date.t()
        }

  def changeset(changeset, attrs) do
    changeset
    |> cast(attrs, typed_fields())
    |> validate_required(required_fields())
    |> validate_type()
  end

  # Domo adds typed_fields/0, required_fields/0 functions to the schema.
  # Domo.Changeset defines validate_type/1 function.
end

See typed_fields/0, required_fields/0, and Domo.Changeset module documentation for details.

See detailed example is in the example_avialia project.

Integration with libraries generating t() type for a struct

Domo is compatible with most libraries that generate t() type for a struct and an Ecto schema, f.e. typed_struct and typed_ecto_schema respectfully. Just use Domo in the module, and that's it.

An example is in the example_typed_integrations project.

TypedStruct's submodule generation with :module option currently is not supported.

Installation

To use Domo in a project, add the following line to mix.exs dependencies:

{:domo, "~> 1.5"}

And the following line to the project's mix.exs file:

compilers: [:domo_compiler] ++ Mix.compilers()

To exclude the generated TypeEnsurer modules from mix test --coverage add the following line, that works since Elixir v1.13, to the project's mix.exs:

test_coverage: [ignore_modules: [~r/\.TypeEnsurer$/]]

To avoid mix format putting extra parentheses around precond/1 macro call, add the following import to the .formatter.exs:

[
  import_deps: [:domo]
]

Phoenix hot-reload

To enable Phoenix hot-reload for struct's type ensurers built by Domo, update the compilers in the mix.exs file like the following:

compilers: [:domo_compiler] ++ Mix.compilers() ++ [:domo_phoenix_hot_reload]

And add the following line to the endpoint's configuration in the config.exs file:

config :my_app, MyApp.Endpoint,
  reloadable_compilers: [:phoenix, :domo_compiler] ++ Mix.compilers() ++ [:domo_phoenix_hot_reload]

Umbrella application

Add the Domo dependency and compilers config as mentioned in the section above to the mix.exs file for each app using Domo.

You may add the same compilers config line to the app itself and to the root umbrella's mix.exs to enable recompile command to work correctly for iex -S mix run in the root.

Configuration

The options listed below can be set globally in the configuration with config :domo, option: value. The value given with use Domo, option: value overrides the global setting.

  • skip_defaults - if set to true, disables the validation of default values given with defstruct/1 to conform to the t() type at compile time. Default is false.

  • name_of_new_function - the name of the constructor function added to the module. The raising error function name is generated automatically from the given one by adding trailing !. Defaults are new and new! appropriately.

  • unexpected_type_error_as_warning - if set to true, prints warning instead of throwing an error for field type mismatch in the raising functions. Default is false.

  • remote_types_as_any - keyword list of type lists by modules that should be treated as any(). F.e. [{ExternalModule, [:t, :name]}, {OtherModule, :t}] Default is nil.

Run the Application.put_env(:domo, :verbose_in_iex, true) to enable verbose messages from domo in Interactive Elixir console.

Performance 🐢

Library affects the project's full recompilation time almost insignificantly.

The compilation times for the business application with 38 structs (8 fields each on average) having 158 modules in total are the following:

Mode       Average (by 3 measurements)  Deviation
No Domo    14.826s                      11.92
With Domo  15.711s                      7.34

Comparison: 
No Domo    14.826s 
With Domo  15.711s - 1.06x slower

The library ensures the correctness of data types at run-time and that comes with the computation price.

For the Tweet struct having 13 fields, the validation takes 3x times longer and 2x more memory then creating the struct with possibly invalid data. And validation of the Tweet struct (13 fields) after nesting a User struct (18 fields) takes 6x times longer and 5x more memory than simple struct's altering. That's a linear growth depending on the number of fields in the nested struct.

It may seem plodding, and it may look like a non-performant to run in production. It's not that. Validation can be executed wisely at the critical check-points of the app where valuable. As a result, users get the application with correct states that are valid in many business contexts.

The run-time benchmark can be executed after cloning the repo with cd benchmark && mix benchmark.

Limitations

Parametrized types are not supported because it adds lots of complexity. Library returns {:type_not_found, :key} error for @type dict(key, value) :: [{key, value}] definition. Library returns error for type referencing parametrized type like @type field :: container(integer()).

Primitive types referencing themselves are not supported. Library returns an error for @type leaf :: leaf | nil definition. On the other hand, structs referencing themselves are supported. The library will build TypeEnsurer for the following definition @type t :: %__MODULE__{leaf: t | nil} and validate.

Migration

To migrate to a new version of Domo, please, clean and recompile the project with mix clean --deps && mix compile command.

Adoption

It's possible to adopt Domo library in the project having user-defined constructor functions named new/1 that interferes with Domo generated function name. Here's how:

  1. Add :domo dependency to the project, configure compilers as described in the installation section
  2. Set the name of the Domo generated constructor function by adding config :domo, :name_of_new_function, :constructor_name option into the confix.exs file, to prevent conflict with user-defined constructor function name
  3. Add use Domo to existing struct, f.e. FirstStruct
  4. Change all struct building calls to be done with Domo generated function with the name set on step 3 f.e. FistStruct.constructor_name(%{...})
  5. Remove user-defined constructor function new/1
  6. Repeat for each struct in the project

Callbacks

Constructor, validation, and reflection functions added to the struct module using Domo.

new!/1/0

Creates a struct validating type conformance and preconditions.

The argument is any Enumerable that emits two-element tuples (key-value pairs) during enumeration.

Returns the instance of the struct built from the given enumerable. Does so only if struct's field values conform to its t() type and all field's type and struct's type precondition functions return ok.

Raises an ArgumentError if conditions described above are not fulfilled.

This function will check if every given key-value belongs to the struct and raise KeyError otherwise.

new/2/1/0

Creates a struct validating type conformance and preconditions.

The argument is any Enumerable that emits two-element tuples (key-value pairs) during enumeration.

Returns the instance of the struct built from the given enumerable in the shape of {:ok, struct_value}. Does so only if struct's field values conform to its t() type and all field's type and struct's type precondition functions return ok.

If conditions described above are not fulfilled, the function returns an appropriate error in the shape of {:error, message_by_field}. message_by_field is a keyword list where the key is the name of the field and value is the string with the error message.

Keys in the enumerable that don't exist in the struct are automatically discarded.

Options

  • maybe_filter_precond_errors - when set to true, the values in message_by_field instead of string become a list of error messages from precondition functions. If there are no error messages from precondition functions for a field's type, then all errors are returned unfiltered. Helpful in taking one of the custom errors after executing precondition functions in a deeply nested type to communicate back to the user. F.e. when the field's type is another struct. Default is false.

ensure_type!/1

Ensures that struct conforms to its t() type and all preconditions are fulfilled.

Returns struct when it's valid. Raises an ArgumentError otherwise.

Useful for struct validation when its fields changed with map syntax or with Map module functions.

ensure_type/2/1

Ensures that struct conforms to its t() type and all preconditions are fulfilled.

Returns struct when it's valid in the shape of {:ok, struct}. Otherwise returns the error in the shape of {:error, message_by_field}.

Useful for struct validation when its fields changed with map syntax or with Map module functions.

typed_fields/1/0

Returns the list of struct's fields defined with explicit types in its t() type spec.

Does not return meta fields with __underscored__ names and fields having any() type by default.

Includes fields that have nil type into the return list.

Options

  • :include_any_typed - when set to true, adds fields with any() type to the return list. Default is false.

  • :include_meta - when set to true, adds fields with __underscored__ names to the return list. Default is false.

required_fields/1/0

Returns the list of struct's fields having type others then nil or any().

Does not return meta fields with __underscored__ names.

Useful for validation of the required fields for emptiness. F.e. with validate_required/2 call in the Ecto changeset.

Options

  • :include_meta - when set to true, adds fields with __underscored__ names to the return list. Default is false.

  • Fix bug to skip validation of struct's enforced keys default value because they are ignored during the construction anyway
  • Increase validation speed by generating TypeEnsurer modules for Date, Date.Range, DateTime, File.Stat, File.Stream, GenEvent.Stream, IO.Stream, Macro.Env, NaiveDateTime, Range, Regex, Task, Time, URI, and Version structs from the standard library at the first project compilation
  • Fix bug to call the precond function of the user type pointing to a struct
  • Increase validation speed by encouraging to use Domo or to make a precond function for struct referenced by a user type
  • Add Domo.has_type_ensurer?/1 that checks whether a TypeEnsurer module was generated for the given struct.
  • Add example of parsing with validating of the Contentful JSON reply via Jason + ExJSONPath + Domo

  • Fix bug to validate defaults having | nil type.

v1.3.0 (2021-08-15)

  • Change the default name of the constructor function to new! to follow Elixir naming convention. You can always change the name with the config :domo, :name_of_new_function, :new_func_name_here app configuration.
  • Fix bug to validate defaults for every required field in a struct except __underscored__ fields at compile-time.
  • Check whether the precondition function associated with t() type returns true at compile time regarding defaults correctness check.
  • Add examples of integrations with TypedStruct and TypedEctoSchema.

v1.2.9 (2021-08-09)

  • Fix bug to acknowledge that type has been changed after a failed compilation.
  • Fix bug to match structs not using Domo with a field of any() type with and without precondition.
  • Add typed_fields/1 and required_fields/1 functions.
  • Add maybe_filter_precond_errors: true option that filters errors from precondition functions for better output for the user.
  • Extracted ---/2 operator and tag chain functions from Domo.TaggedTuple into tagged_tuple library.

v1.2.8 (2021-07-15)

  • Add Domo.Changeset.validate_type/* functions to validate Ecto.Changeset field changes matching the t() type.
  • Fix the bug to return custom error from precondition function as underlying error for :| types.

v1.2.7 (2021-07-05)

  • Fix the bug to make recompilation occur when fixing alias for remote type.
  • Support custom errors to be returned from functions defined with precond/1.

v1.2.6 (2021-06-21)

  • Validates type conformance of default values given with defstruct/1 to the struct's t() type at compile-time.
  • Includes only the most matching type error into the error message.

v1.2.5 (2021-06-14)

  • Add remote_types_as_any option to disable validation of specified complex remote types. What can be replaced by precondition for wrapping user-defined type.

v1.2.4 (2021-06-07)

  • Speedup resolving of struct types
  • Limit the number of allowed fields types combinations to 4096
  • Support Range.t() and MapSet.t()
  • Keep type ensurers source code after compiling umbrella project
  • Remove preconditions manifest file on mix clean command
  • List processed structs giving mix --verbose option

v1.2.3 (2021-05-31)

  • Support struct's attribute introduced in Elixir 1.12.0 for error checking
  • Add user-defined precondition functions to check the allowed range of values with precond/1 macro

v1.2.2 (2021-05-05)

  • Add support for new/1 calls at compile time f.e. to specify default values

v1.2.1 (2021-04-25)

  • Domo compiler is renamed to :domo_compiler
  • Compile TypeEnsurer modules only if struct changes or dependency type changes
  • Phoenix hot-reload with :reloadable_compilers option is fully supported

v1.2.0 (2021-04-12)

  • Resolve all types at compile time and build TypeEnsurer modules for all structs
  • Make Domo library work with Elixir 1.11.x and take it as the required minimum version
  • Introduce ---/2 operator to make tag chains with Domo.TaggedTuple module (will be removed in v1.2.9)

v0.0.x - v1.0.x (2020-06-20)

  • MVP like releases, resolving types at runtime. Adds new constructor to a struct

Roadmap

  • [x] Check if the field values passed as an argument to the new/1, and put/3 matches the field types defined in typedstruct/1.

  • [x] Support the keyword list as a possible argument for the new/1.

  • [x] Add module option to put a warning in the console instead of raising of the ArgumentError exception on value type mismatch.

  • [x] Make global environment configuration options to turn errors into warnings that are equivalent to module ones.

  • [x] Move type resolving to the compile time.

  • [x] Keep only bare minimum of generated functions that are new/1, ensure_type!/1 and their _ok versions.

  • [x] Make the new/1 and ensure_type!/1 speed to be less or equal to 1.5 times of the struct!/2 speed.

  • [x] Support new/1 calls in macros to specify default values f.e. in other structures. That is to check if default value matches type at compile time.

  • [x] Support precond/1 macro to specify a struct field value's contract with a boolean function.

  • [x] Support struct types referencing itself for tree structures.

  • [x] Evaluate full recompilation time for a project using Domo.

  • [x] Add use option to specify names of the generated functions.

  • [x] Add documentation to the generated for new(_ok)/1, and ensure_type!(_ok)/1 functions in a struct.
