Add another 'Validation' Library

README

rdf-validate-shacl

Validate RDF data purely in JavaScript. An implementation of the W3C SHACL specification on top of the RDFJS stack.

npm version

We provide a SHACL playground based on this library.

Usage

The library only handles SHACL validation and not data loading/parsing. The following example uses rdf-utils-fs for this purpose. For more information about handling RDF data in JavaScript, check out Get started with RDF in JavaScript.

The validation function returns a ValidationReport object that can be used to inspect conformance and results. The ValidationReport also has a .dataset property, which provides the report as RDF data.

const fs = require('fs')
const factory = require('rdf-ext')
const ParserN3 = require('@rdfjs/parser-n3')
const SHACLValidator = require('rdf-validate-shacl')

async function loadDataset (filePath) {
  const stream = fs.createReadStream(filePath)
  const parser = new ParserN3({ factory })
  return factory.dataset().import(parser.import(stream))
}

async function main() {
  const shapes = await loadDataset('my-shapes.ttl')
  const data = await loadDataset('my-data.ttl')

  const validator = new SHACLValidator(shapes, { factory })
  const report = await validator.validate(data)

  // Check conformance: `true` or `false`
  console.log(report.conforms)

  for (const result of report.results) {
    // See https://www.w3.org/TR/shacl/#results-validation-result for details
    // about each property
    console.log(result.message)
    console.log(result.path)
    console.log(result.focusNode)
    console.log(result.severity)
    console.log(result.sourceConstraintComponent)
    console.log(result.sourceShape)
  }

  // Validation report as RDF dataset
  console.log(report.dataset)
}

main();

Validator options

The SHACLValidator constructor accepts an optional options object as second parameter. The available options are:

  • factory: RDF/JS data factory (must have a .dataset() method)
  • maxErrors: max number of errors after which the validation process should stop. By default, it only stops after all the errors are found.

Running the tests

$ npm test

Regenerating vocabularies

The SHACL vocabulary is imported from @zazuko/rdf-vocabularies and pre-parsed in src/vocabularies/shacl.js.

After updating the @zazuko/rdf-vocabularies dependency, run npm run generate-vocabularies to regenerate the pre-parsed vocabulary.

Limitations

rdf-validate-shacl does not support SHACL-SPARQL constraints

About

rdf-validate-shacl was originally a fork of shacl-js meant to make it compatible with RDF/JS libraries. Since then, we dropped support for the SHACL-JS extension and adapted the API to suit our needs.
