Validating a list of "dictionaries"

See original GitHub issue

I have a schema that works out very well, but there’s one issue: one part of my YAML files can include a key where the values are a list of dictionary values (ie, each element is a key/value pair. How would I go about validating this?

The most I know is that I need a list (since the root key is going to be a list), but the values of each list are dictionaries which doesn’t seem to have a validator available atm?

EDIT: I think the correct method is list(map(str(), key=str()), required=False, none=True), is this correct?

Hi, thanks for using Yamale! What you have will work just fine. If you need to constrain the keys of the map further, you can use the regex validator instead of the str validator.

And thanks @mechie for jumping in to help answer questions.
