Complete::Sah - Sah-related completion routines


This document describes version 0.008 of Complete::Sah (from Perl distribution Complete-Sah), released on 2021-07-29.


 use Complete::Sah qw(complete_from_schema);
 my $res = complete_from_schema(word => 'a', schema=>[str => {in=>[qw/apple apricot banana/]}]);
 # -> {words=>['apple', 'apricot'], static=>0}




 complete_from_schema(%args) -> [$status_code, $reason, $payload, \%result_meta]

Complete a value from schema.

Employ some heuristics to complete a value from Sah schema. For example, if schema is [str => in => [qw/new open resolved rejected/]], then we can complete from the in clause. Or for something like [int => between => [1, 20]] we can complete using values from 1 to 20.

This function is not exported by default, but exportable.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

  • schema* => any

    Will be normalized, unless when schema_is_normalized is set to true, in which case schema must already be normalized.

  • schema_is_normalized => bool (default: 0)

  • word* => str (default: "")

Returns an enveloped result (an array).

First element ($status_code) is an integer containing HTTP-like status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element ($reason) is a string containing error message, or something like "OK" if status is 200. Third element ($payload) is the actual result, but usually not present when enveloped result is an error response ($status_code is not 2xx). Fourth element (%result_meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information, much like how HTTP response headers provide additional metadata.

Return value: (any)
