Laravel Validator Object-Oriented Wrapper

Laravel Validator Object-Oriented Wrapper

The Laravel Validator object-oriented wrapper package by Krzysztof Rewak provides a map of all string rules into chained methods. The builder helps you write object-oriented style rules that translate back into their string counterparts:

$validator = new ValidationBuilder();
$validator->validate("email", function (Field $field): void {
    $field->string()->required()->email(["rfc"])
});

$validator->getRules();
// ["email" => "string|required|email:rfc]

Here’s an example of nested validation rules:

$validator = new ValidationBuilder();
$validator->validateEach("tags", function (Field $field): void {
    $field->array();
});
$validator->validateInEach("id", "tags", function (Field $field): void {
    $field->required()->exists("tags", "id");
});

$validator->getRules();
// ["tags.*:" => "array", "tags.*.id:" => "required|exists:tags,id"]

And finally, you can also use the builder in form requests:

/**
 * @return array
 */
public function rules(): array
{
    $this->builder->validate("email", function (Field $field): void {
        $field->required()->string()->email()->unique("users", "email");
    });
    $this->builder->validate("password", function (Field $field): void {
        $field->required()->string()->min(6)->confirmed();
    });

    return $this->builder->getRules();
}
