Features & characteristics:

  • Model based

  • Support for collection validations
  • Support for nested models
  • Contextified validators
  • Easy to use with custom validators (e.g. Moment.js)
  • Support for function composition
  • Validates different data sources: Vuex getters, computed values, etc.

Demo & docs


npm install vuelidate --save

You can import the library and use as a Vue plugin to enable the functionality globally on all components containing validation configuration.

import Vue from 'vue'
import Vuelidate from 'vuelidate'

Alternatively it is possible to import a mixin directly to components in which it will be used.

import { validationMixin } from 'vuelidate'

var Component = Vue.extend({ mixins: [validationMixin], validations: { ... } })

The browser-ready bundle is also provided in the package.


Basic usage

For each value you want to validate, you have to create a key inside validations options. You can specify when input becomes dirty by using appropriate event on your input box.

import { required, minLength, between } from 'vuelidate/lib/validators'

export default { data () { return { name: '', age: 0 } }, validations: { name: { required, minLength: minLength(4) }, age: { between: between(20, 30) } } }

This will result in a validation object:

$v: {
  name: {
    "required": false,
    "minLength": false,
    "$invalid": true,
    "$dirty": false,
    "$error": false,
    "$pending": false
  age: {
    "between": false
    "$invalid": true,
    "$dirty": false,
    "$error": false,
    "$pending": false
