Pristine - Vanilla javascript form validation library

{:.hide}

~4kb minified, ~2kb gzipped, no dependencies

Living demo

Some examples of use can be found here.

Usage

Include the javascript file in your html head or just before the closing body tag


Now create some form and validate

window.onload = function () {

var form = document.getElementById("form1");

// create the pristine instance
var pristine = new Pristine(form);

form.addEventListener('submit', function (e) {
   e.preventDefault();

   // check if the form is valid
   var valid = pristine.validate(); // returns true or false

});

};

That's it

It automatically validates

required, min, max, minlength, maxlength
attributes and the value of type attributes like
email, number
and more..

Pristine
takes
3
parameters
  • form The form element

  • config An object containing the configuration. Default is bootstrap's configuration which is

let defaultConfig = {
    // class of the parent element where the error/success class is added
    classTo: 'form-group',
    errorClass: 'has-danger',
    successClass: 'has-success',
    // class of the parent element where error text element is appended
    errorTextParent: 'form-group',
    // type of element to create for the error text
    errorTextTag: 'div',
    // class of the error text element
    errorTextClass: 'text-help' 
};
  • live A boolean value indicating whether pristine should validate as you type, default is
    true

Install

$ npm install pristinejs --save

Custom Validator

pristine.addValidator(nameOrElem, handler, errorMessage, priority, halt);

Add a custom validator to a field

var pristine = new Pristine(document.getElementById("form1"));

var elem = document.getElementById("email");

// A validator to check if the first letter is capitalized pristine.addValidator(elem, function(value) { // here this refers to the respective input element if (value.length && value[0] === value[0].toUpperCase()){ return true; } return false; }, "The first character must be capitalized", 2, false);

Add a global custom validator

// A validator to check if the input value is within a specified range
// Global validators must be added before creating the pristine instance

Pristine.addValidator("my-range", function(value, param1, param2) { // here this refers to the respective input element return parseInt(param1) <= value && value <= parseInt(param2)

}, "The value (${0}) must be between ${1} and ${2}", 5, false);

Now you can assign it to your inputs like this


Add custom error messages


Add an attribute like

data-pristine--message
with the custom message as value to show custom error messages. You can add custom messages like this for as many validators as you need. Here
ValidatorName
means
required
,
email
,
min
,
max
etc.
