how to validate data in javascript


we build project and websites , sometimes encounter problems that need solve, but what if we come out with problem of how we validate data in correct way, this is major question and what the data structure you want to validate!, like you want validate and email and password you want to add specific rules to keep users Entering emails correctly,but that too tough or you are not expert in validating strings or regex or anythings like that.

how to solve ?

developers like to use validation library to solve there problems and focus in there business, so this point help me to start building volder validation library helping people to describe data in good structure and well design.

what is volder

volder is javascript npm package, it's powerful Object schema validation, it lets you describe your data using a simple and readable schema and transform a value to match the requirements, it has custom error messages, custom types and nested schemas.

let's take an example

in this example we use volder package for user login validation, first thing install volder package
npm install --save volder

volder package has

  • Volder constructor to describe and structure your multiple data.
  • SingleVolder function it's used for describe single data.
  • volder support other types like Email or CreditCard.

this code shows you how to describe your data for user validation

import { Volder, Email } from 'volder';

const userSchema = new Volder({
    username: {
        type: [String, 'username must be in string'],
        alphanumeric: [true, 'username should only contain letters and numbers'],
        minLength: [4, 'username at least 4 characters'],
        maxLength: [16, 'username at most 16 characters'],
        required: [true, 'username is required'],
        trim: true
    email: {
        type: [String ,'email must be in string'],
        pattern: [Email, 'not valid email'],
        maxLength: [150, 'email be at most 150 characters'],
        required: [ true,'email is required'],
        trim: true
    password: {
        type: [String , 'password must be in string'],
        minLength:[8, 'password should be at least 8 characters'],
        maxLength: [30, 'password should be at most 30 characters'],
        required: [ true, 'password is required'],
        matches: ["^(?=.*[A-Za-z])(?=.*\d)[A-Za-z\d]$", 'password must contain numbers and letters']


const { valid, errors, value } = userSchema.validate(input);
