Don't use AJV. Use JSON.

See original GitHub issue

This SDK uses a library called AJV for schema validation. However, it makes creating and using CloudEvent objects very complicated through a set of setters and getters.

It would be a lot simpler to be able to directly create CloudEvent objects given a JSON object. Further field validation could be done externally through a different function rather than a ajv.compile(schema) and external spec.

I don’t have any particular love or hate for AJV. But do you have another suggested tool for schema validation? AJV gets 31 million downloads a week, so I think it’s probably pretty well liked.

Yeah, the usage now is a lot cleaner than it was before. It does take 60% of the bundle size, so I was a little concerned if we’re trying to slim this package down. Maybe it could an optional dependency in the future.

Should be fine to keep until there’s a better suggestion.
