Semantic Versioning Operation Specification

This evaluator checks if the given property within the evaluation context matches a semantic versioning condition. It returns 'true', if the value of the given property meets the condition, 'false' if not.

    "if": [
            "sem_ver": [{"var": "version"}, ">=", "1.0.0"]
        "red", null

The implementation of this evaluator should accept the object containing the sem_ver evaluator configuration, and a data object containing the evaluation context. The 'sem_ver' evaluation rule contains exactly three items:

  1. Target property value: the resolved value of the target property referenced in the targeting rule
  2. Operator: One of the following: =, !=, >, <, >=, <=, ~ (match minor version), ^ (match major version)
  3. Target value: this needs to resolve to a semantic versioning string. If this condition is not met, the evaluator should log an appropriate error message and return false

The sem_ver evaluation returns a boolean, indicating whether the condition has been met.

Please note that the implementation of this evaluator can assume that instead of {"var": "version"}, it will receive the resolved value of that referenced property, as resolving the value will be taken care of by JsonLogic before applying the evaluator.

The following flow chart depicts the logic of this evaluator:

flowchart TD
A[Parse targetingRule] --> B{Is an array containing exactly three items?};
B -- Yes --> C{Is targetingRule at index 0 a semantic version string?};
B -- No --> D[Return false];
C -- Yes --> E{Is targetingRule at index 1 a supported operator?};
C -- No --> D;
E -- Yes --> F{Is targetingRule at index 2 a semantic version string?};
E -- No --> D;
F -- No --> D;
F --> G[Compare the two versions using the operator and return a boolean value indicating if they match];
