Loosely validate a URL

url validator

Opinionated URL validator.

  • Does not support raw domains like github.com, though I wish there was a smart way to do so
  • Defaults protocol-less URLs like //github.com/ to HTTPs like https://github.com/
  • Domains will always have trailing slashes
  • Encode components
var validate = require('url-validator')
var url = validate('//github.com')
// => 'https://github.com/' 

If the url is invalid, then url will be false
