    CLABE Validator


    !! This is a fork from https://github.com/center-key/clabe-validator !!

    !! Just to make urgent changes for a production system. !!

    JavaScript library to analyze or create a CLABE number for a Mexican bank account

    License:MIT npm Dependencies Vulnerabilities Hits Build

    CLABE (Clave Bancaria Estandarizada — Spanish for "standardized banking code") is a banking standard from the Mexican Bank Association (Asociación de Bancos de México — ABM) for uniform numbering of bank accounts.  CLABE numbers are 18 digits long.  See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CLABE

    A) Online form

    Try it out:

    B) Setup


    Include in a web page:

    <script src=clabe.min.js></script>

    or from the jsdelivr.com CDN:

    <script src=https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/clabe-validator@1.3/dist/clabe.min.js></script>


    Install package:

    $ npm install clabe-validator

    Import package:

    const clabe = require('clabe-validator');

    C) Validator usage

    Pass the CLABE number as an 18-character string into clabe.validate(clabeNum).

    1. Example JavaScript code

    const clabeNum = '002010077777777771';
    const clabeCheck = clabe.validate(clabeNum);
    console.log(clabeCheck.ok ? '¡Que bueno!' : '¡Muy mal!');
    console.log('Your bank: ' + clabeCheck.bank);

    2. Example JSON result for a valid CLABE number

       ok:       true,
       error:    null,
       formatOk: true,
       tag:      'BANAMEX',
       bank:     'Banco Nacional de México, S.A.',
       city:     'Aguascalientes',
       account:  '07777777777'

    3. Example JSON result for an invalid CLABE number

       ok:       false,
       formatOk: true,
       error:    'invalid-city',
       message:  'Invalid city code: 000'

    The formatOk field indicates if the CLABE's length and checksum are both valid (even if the bank code or city code are invalid).

    4. Possible errors

    Error code Error message Format Ok
    invalid-length Must be exactly 18 digits long false
    invalid-characters Must be only numeric digits (no letters) false
    invalid-checksum Invalid checksum, last digit should be: [DIGIT] false
    invalid-bank Invalid bank code: [CODE] true
    invalid-city Invalid city code: [CODE] true

    D) Calculator usage

    Pass the bank code, city code, and account number into clabe.calculate(bankCode, cityCode, accountNumber) and get the 18-character CLABE number back.

    const clabeNum = clabe.calculate(2, 10, 7777777777);
    console.log(clabeNum === '002010077777777771');  //true
