Functional, extensible, input validation. Make sure the value you receive is EXACTLY what you expect.

Getting Started


npm install js-validate

Quick Use

```node var validator = require('js-validate'); ```
var validate = validator.start();
Validate against a single rule:
validate('123', 'min-length 2');  //--> true
Validate against multiple rules:
validate('123', ['min-length 2', 'number']);  //-->true

Built-in Rules

- alpha - alphanumeric **NOW ACCEPTS ADDITIONAL CHARACTERS** - boolean - capitals (counts capital characters) - ends-with - equals - length - matches **NEW** - matchesExactly **NEW** - max - max-length - min - min-length - number (isNumber) - numbers (Number Characters) - numeric (consists of numerical digits) - specials (Special Characters) - starts-with
Create a validator (rule) group:{
  'account-number': [
    'min-length 7',
    'starts-with 000-',
    'ends-with -00'
Validate against a group of rules:
validate('000-KLJ8989123-00', 'account-number');  //--> true
Create a custom rule:
  isOkay: function(input) {
    return input === 'ok';
Alphanumeric with additional characters
*Alphanumeric plus spaces*
validate('Mulberry Lane', 'alphanumeric');  //--> false

validate('Mulberry Lane', 'alphanumeric _space_');  //--> true

Alphanumeric plus any other character

validate('Box #123', 'alphanumeric _space_ #');  //--> true
validate('888-JS-VALIDATE', 'alphanumeric -');  //--> true
Keep this in mind when creating custom rules:
  • Validator rules must return a pure boolean (true | false)
  • The first parameter must be the user input
  • Unlimited additional parameters are supported
  • Custom rules are added to the default rule list
  • Custom rules may be used in conjunction with defaults in rule groups
