check is a lightweight package for argument checking and general pattern matching. Use it like this:

Meteor.publish("chats-in-room", function (roomId) {
  // Make sure roomId is a string, not an arbitrary mongo selector object.
  check(roomId, String);
  return Chats.find({room: roomId});

Meteor.methods({addChat: function (roomId, message) {
  check(roomId, String);
  check(message, {
    text: String,
    timestamp: Date,
    // Optional, but if present must be an array of strings.
    tags: Match.Optional([String])

  // ... do something with the message ...

For more details see the check section of the Meteor docs.
