Fluent Validation Rules With Laravel Hyrule

Published on by

Fluent Validation Rules With Laravel Hyrule image

Laravel Hyrule is an object-oriented, composable, fluent API for writing validations in Laravel:

Hyrule works by providing a builder object that lets you build rules around the expected form fields. These fields can be simple scalar data types and complex arrays and objects. For example, here's a basic rule validating the first name to be a required string with a max length of 255 characters:

// Initialize a new builder
$builder = Hyrule::create();
 
// Describe your expected input:
$builder->string('first_name')
->required()
->max(255);
 
$rules = $builder->build();
 
$validator = Validator::make($data, $rules);

Most forms submit multiple fields and in order to traverse multiple fields you can chain them together using the end() method:

$builder
->string('first_name')
->required()
->max(255)
->end()
->string('last_name')
->required()
->max(255)
->end()
->integer('age')
->required()
->min(21)
->max(60)
->end();

Not only can you define validation for scalar fields, this package allows you to validate objects, arrays of scalar fields, and arrays of objects:

$builder
->object('nutritional_facts')
->required()
->integer('servings_per_container')
->required()
->min(1)
->end()
->string('serving_size')
->required()
->min(1)
->max(30)
->end()
->object('fat')
->integer('saturated_fat_grams')->end()
->integer('saturated_fat_percent')
->max(100)
->end();
->end();

As you can see in the above example, we've defined an object with properties, including a property that represents another embedded object.
