Complete::Sah - Sah-related completion routines


This document describes version 0.007 of Complete::Sah (from Perl distribution Complete-Sah), released on 2020-06-04.


 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, msg, payload, 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) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (payload) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.

Return value: (any)
