I am assuming that if I am using spec keys macro, I do not also need to check the data is a hash-map. So in the following code, the map? predicate would be redundant. Can someone confirm?

(spec/def ::customer-details
      :req [::first-name ::last-name ::email-address ::home-address ::social-secuirty-id])))


yes it’s redundant

s/keys does a map? check

Hello everyone. I really like Clojure.spec, it is really fun to use. I am currently wondering if there was a way to extract the default generator of a specs when using with-gen? The reason I am asking is I wish to provide more specific example than the default generator, but would still like to use the randomness of the default one. I know we can use gen/one-of, or gen/frequencies, but can we define the specific generator directly with with-gen? If not what would be a good/concise alternative to my problem, which is to define a spec with a custom generator which combine the default generator as well?


@neo2551 If I understand you correctly, we do this sort of thing a lot. Typically it's because of having a s/and. Here's an example of what we often have:

(s/def ::base-thing (s/keys :req [::a]))

(s/def ::thing
  (s/with-gen (s/and ::base-thing pred1? pred2?) #(gen/fmap (fn [base-thing] ) (s/gen ::base-thing))))

@kenny It is more if you define the ::color spec as keyword? and provide the #{:blue :red} as examples? In this case the base gen is concise, but in a more general case, I would need to copy/double the definition of my spec, will I?

I would still like to retain the ability to generate random keywords, while using my blue and red examples. One solution is gen/one-of, but I don’t see how I can get the random one without copying the base spec again.


(def colors #{:blue :red})
(s/def ::color (s/with-gen keyword? #(gen/one-of [(s/gen colors) (s/gen keyword?)])))

David Pham21:05:38

What if keyword? was some really long spec?


(s/def ::color (s/or :predefined #{:blue :red}
                     :other keyword?))


I'm not really sure I understand your problem 🙂
