DateValidator Build Status

The DateValidator project is to create a simple Date validator for both client-side and server-side JavaScript. At the moment, the goal is to keep things small and focus only on ensuring Day, Month, and Year are valid. It is not intended to have the power of the node-dateutils project.

Installation

npm install datevalidator

Testing the Package

Once the package is installed, you can run the unit tests associated with the package also using NPM.

npm test datevalidator

Node Usage

DateValidator at the moment provides a single method validate. The validate method expects a year, month, and day string parameters and will validate based on such.

var date_validator = require("DateValidator");
var is_valid = date_validator.validate("2012", "12", "31"); //true 

Using DateValidator Client-Side

DateValidator is also compatible with client-side JavaScript development by way of Browserify. To Learn more about Browserify, go to http://browserify.org/.

DateValidator 1.0.7 provides a more globally accessible way of using DateValidator outside of Browserify. The algorithm is the same as of v2.0; however, the client-side instructions are different and provided with that version.

Html

<script type="text/javascript" src="path/to/date-validator.js"></script>

JavaScript

var validator = DateValidator;
var is_valid = date_validator.validate("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.

False Conditions

The validate method will return false for the following conditions:

  • if any parameter is undefined
  • 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);
