Svelte Form

Simple Svelte Form model handler and form fields validation library. It is designed to give maximum freedom in the actual input component construction, i.e. there are not actual build-in input components, rather examples how to build one.

To see the details code documentation, please read the Code Documentation.

},
 
module: {
  rules: [

Essentials

Note: All code below uses ES2015+.

Create the Form

form.svelte:

import createForm from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// An example of a form without validation
const form = createForm({
  username: '',
  password: '',
});

To get more details about the createForm method, please see Create Form.

Input Binding

form.svelte:

<script>
import createForm from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
import TextInput from './input/text.svelte';
 
// An example of a form without validation
const form = createForm({
  username: '',
  password: '',
});
</script> 
 
<TextInput form={form} name='username' />

text.svelte:

<script>
  // Props
  export let form;
  export let name;
 
  // Get the form field
  $: field = form.field(name);
  // Value svelte store
  $: value = field.value;
  // State svelte store, {valid: boolean, error: string}
  $: state = field.state;
</script> 
 
<div class="input" class:error="{$state.valid === false}">
  <input type="text" bind:value="{$value}" />
  <p class="validation">{$state.error}</p>
</div>
 
<style lang="scss">
.input {
  .validation {
    display: none;
  }
  &.error {
    .validation {
      display: block;
    }
  }
}
</style> 
  • The state store is a derived store based on the value store, performing the input validation each time the value changes.
  • The form.field(name) method gets the field stores, for more details see Form Field Object.

Form State

The form state is a svelte store holding the form validation state.

form.svelte:

import createForm from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// An example of a form without validation
const form = createForm({
  username: '',
  password: '',
});
 
// You can directly subscribe to form state change
form.subscribe((f) => console.log(f.valid));
// or shorthand access.
console.log($form.valid)

To get more details about the form, please see Form Object.

Form Data

You can get the current form date anytime by calling:

import createForm from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// An example of a form without validation
const form = createForm({
  username: '',
  password: '',
});
 
// Get the form current data
const data = form.data();

Form Field Validation

Validation functions could be passed for individual form fields:

import createForm from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
import {required, email} from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// An example of a form without validation
const form = createForm(
  // Form fields
  {
    username: '',
    password: '',
  },
  // Form validation - optional
  // Collection of validation rules or single rule.
  {
    username: [
      required('This field is required'),
      email('Invalid email format')
    ],
    password: required('This field is required'),
  }
);

More information:

Builtin Validation Rules

Required

import {required} from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// Create new rule
const rule = required('Error message');

Equal

import {equal} from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// The value must be equal to 5
const rule = equal('Error message', 5);
 
// Equal can accept fn(val)->boolean as an argument for a custom
// equality matching.
const customMatcherRule = equal('Error message', (val) => {
  return val === 5;
});

Email

import {email} from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// Create new rule
const rule = email('Error message');

URL

import {url} from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// Create new rule
const rule = url('Error message');

Min

import {min} from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// The value must be 5 and more.
const rule = min('Error message', 5);

Max

import {max} from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// The value must be 5 and less.
const rule = max('Error message', 5);

Between

import {between} from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// The value must be between 5 and 10 inclusively.
const rule = between('Error message', 5, 10);

Regular Expression

import {rx} from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// The value must match custom regular expression.
const rule = rx('Error message', /\d+\.\d+/);

Exclude

import {exclude} from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// The value must not be present in the exclusion array.
const ruleA = exclude('Error message', [1, 2]);
const ruleB = exclude('Error message', ['toronto', 'new-york']);

Include

import {include} from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// The value must be present in the inclusion array.
const ruleA = include('Error message', [1, 2]);
const ruleB = include('Error message', ['toronto', 'new-york']);

Ignore Empty

This is a special rule which might be used to the ignore empty fields, i.e. any other validation rules will be tested only if the value in not empty.

import {ignoreEmpty, url} from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// An example usage
const form = createForm(
  // Form fields
  {
    website: '',
  },
  // URL validation will be tested only if the website in not empty.
  {
    website: [
      ignoreEmpty(),
      url('Invalid URL'),
    ],
  }
);
 

Custom Validation Rule

Custom validation rule must be a function accepting a tested value, and expected to return true when valid, or error message string in not valid, e.g.:

const invoice = (msg) => (value) => {
  if (value.match(/inv-\d+/) === null) {
    return msg;
  }
  return true;
}
 
// The actual rule expected by the form field, e.g. fn(val)->true|string
const rule = invoice('Invalid invoice number');

Trigger Form Validation

Validation could be trigger all fields in this manner:

import createForm from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
import {required, email} from '@spaceavocado/svelte-form';
 
// An example of a form without validation
const form = createForm(
  // Form fields
  {
    username: '',
    password: '',
  },
  // Form validation - optional
  // Collection of validation rules or single rule.
  {
    username: [
      required('This field is required'),
      email('Invalid email format')
    ],
    password: required('This field is required'),
  }
);
 
// Trigger validation of all fields
form.validate();
