Modella Validators

Build Status

A plugin that provides a bunch of validators for modella.

Example Usage

var Person     = modella('Person').attr('name', { required: true }),
    validation = require('modella-validators');

Basic Validators


Verifies that a field is present.

var User = User.attr('username', {required: true});


Verifies that a field equals another field.

var User = User.attr('password')
               .attr('passwordConfirmation', { confirms: 'password' });


Checks that a field is of a given type

var User = User.attr('name', {type: 'string'});

In addition to string support for primitives, you can also pass in a constructor.

var User = User.attr('parent', { type: User });


Checks that a field is one of the specified choices

var User = User.attr('state', {choices: ['CONFIRMED', 'PENDING']})

Format Validators

Verify the value of a field against a regex pattern. modella-validators comes with a few regex strings built in under the formatStrings object.


Validates the field against the given regular expression

var User = User.attr('name', {format: /\w+ \w+/ });

Phone Number

Validates the field against a (North American) phone number format

var User = User.attr('phone', {format: 'phone' });

Email Address

Validates the field against a email address format

var User = User.attr('email', {format: 'email' });


Validates the field against a URL format

var User = User.attr('website', {format: 'url' });
