isString
isString :: a β†’ Boolean
Evaluates whether the given value is of type String​
import isString from 'deep-waters/isString';
​
isString('foo'); // β†’ true
​
isString(20); // β†’ false
isString, like any other type validator, is mostly used in composed validators:
import isString from 'deep-waters/isString';
import matchesPattern from 'deep-waters/matchesPattern';
​
const isEmail = compose(
isString,
matchesPattern(/^\w+([.-]?\w+)*@\w+([.-]?\w+)*(\.\w{2,3})+$/),
);
isString is built on top of ofClass validator and rely on Object.prototype.toString to check on the received value type in order to avoid typeof weird behaviours and encouraging a runtime strict type validation.
