Can I use Cerberus to validate objects?#

Yes. See Validating user objects with Cerberus.

Are Cerberus validators thread-safe, can they be used in different threads?#

The normalization and validation methods of validators make a copy of the provided document and store it as document property. Because of this it is advised to create a new Validator instance for each processed document when used in a multi-threaded context. Alternatively you can use a threading.Lock to confirm that only one document processing is running at any given time.
