The HSDS Validator is an open source project that enables users to check if the structure of their data tables follows HSDS.
Users can either upload individual CSVs or a zip file with multiple CSVs. The HSDS Validator will test each file and return one of four results:
- “Valid” means that the table contains all HSDS specified fields and no others
- “Valid with additions” means that the table contains all HSDS fields as well as additional fields.
- “Invalid” means the table does not contain all HSDS fields.
- “Null” means no data was entered for that HSDS data table.
Sarapis hosts a deployment of the HSDS validator that you’re invited to use.
