A very simple date validator for handling year, month, and day values. The package works as a node module as well as in a browser.
npm install DateValidator
Once the package is installed, you can run the unit tests associated with the package also using NPM.
npm test DateValidator
DateValidator at the moment provides an object with a single method
validate method expects a year, month, and day string parameters and will validate based on such.
var date_validator = require"DateValidator"DateValidator;var is_valid = date_validatorvalidate"2012" "12" "31"; //true
In addition to being usable as a Node.js module, the validator can also be used client-side in the user's web browser. When you install
While you can copy the
date-validator.js file from the module's installation directory under
node_modles, an automated script has been provided to assist you in this copy process and to make it more streamlined. To do a client-side install, simply type the following
npm run-script DateValidator client-install
Once you run that command, you'll be prompted to provide the path to which to install
var validator = DateValidator;var is_valid = date_validatorvalidate"2012" "12" "31"; //true
By default, the DateValidator module places itself into the global scope in the browser. If you would prefer to NOT have it be directly attached to the
window object, you can add your own
namespace at the top of the date-validator.js file.
validate method will return
false for the following conditions:
- if any parameter is
- if any parameter is not numeric
- if any parameter is less than or equal to (<=) 0
- if the month is greater than 12
- if the day is invalid for the provided month (i.e. Feb 31);
