Install

Run the command below to install the package.
$ npm install --save validatable

This package uses promises thus you need to use Promise polyfill when promises are not supported.

Example

import {Validator} from 'validatable';

let v = new Validator();

let e = await v.validate(
  '', // value to validate
  [ // list of validations
    {
      validator: 'presence', // validator name
      message: '%{foo} must be present', // validator options
      foo: 'bar' // a custom variable for the message
    }
  ]
); // -> list of errors

See the ./tests folder for details.

| Option | Type | Required | Default | Description |--------|------|----------|---------|------------ | failFast | Boolean | No | false | When set to true, the validation stops after the first validation error. | validators | Object | No | built-in validators | Object with custom validators (this variable is merged with built-in validators thus you can override a validator key if you need to). | context | Object | No | null | A context reference which is applied to each validator method.
import {Validator} from 'validatable';

let v = new Validator({
  failFast: true,
  validators: {
    async coolness ({value, recipe}}) { return value === 'cool' } // custom validator
  },
  context: null
});

Validates a value against the provided options.

| Option | Type | Required | Default | Description |--------|------|----------|---------|------------ | value | Any | Yes | - | A value to validate. | recipes | Array | Yes | | A configuration object describing validators.
let value = 'John Smith';
let recipe = {
  validator: 'presence', // [required] validator name
  message: '%{foo} must be present', // [optional] validation error message (note that you can insert related recipe values by using the %{key} syntax)
  code: 422, // [optional] validation error code
  condition: () => true, // [optional] a condition which switches the validation on/off
  foo: 'bar' // [optional] a custom variable
};
let recipes = [recipe];
