  • GitHub – cue-lang/cue: The new home of the CUE language! Validate and define text-based and dynamic configuration
    The CUE Data Constraint Language

    Configure, Unify, Execute

    CUE is an open source data constraint language which aims to simplify tasks involving defining and using data.

    It is a superset of JSON, allowing users familiar with JSON to get started quickly.

    What is it for?

    You can use CUE to

    define a detailed validation schema for your data (manually or automatically from data)
    reduce boilerplate in your data (manually or automatically from schema)
    extract a schema from code
    generate type definitions and validation code
    merge JSON in a principled way
    define and run declarative scripts

    CUE merges the notion of schema and data. The same CUE definition can simultaneously be used for validating data and act as a template to reduce boilerplate. Schema definition is enriched with fine-grained value definitions and default values. At the same time, data can be simplified by removing values implied by such detailed definitions. The merging of these two concepts enables many tasks to be handled in a principled way.

    Constraints provide a simple and well-defined, yet powerful, alternative to inheritance, a common source of complexity with configuration languages.
