Useful Laravel Validation Rule Packages

Useful Laravel Validation Rule Packages

Laravel Validation Rules is a GitHub organization containing a collection of useful validation rules that you can pull into any project quickly and not have to write them yourself. At the time of writing here’s the list of validation rule packages:

  • Colour (currently supports hex)
  • Country Codes
  • Credit Card
  • IP
  • Phone
  • Subdomain
  • Timezone
  • US States and CA Provinces

Here’s an example from the documentation using the US states validation package:

use LVR\State\Abbr;
use LVR\State\Full;

# Abbreviation vs Full
$request->validate(['test' => 'UT'], ['test' => new Abbr]); // Pass!
$request->validate(['test' => 'BC'], ['test' => new Abbr); // Pass!
$request->validate(['test' => 'Utah'], ['test' => new Full]); // Pass!
$request->validate(['test' => 'Alberta'], ['test' => new Full]); // Pass!

# Abbreviation - USA vs Canada
$request->validate(['test' => 'UT'], ['test' => new Abbr]); // Pass!
$request->validate(['test' => 'UT'], ['test' => new Abbr('US')]); // Pass!
$request->validate(['test' => 'BC'], ['test' => new Abbr('CA')); // Pass!

# Full - USA vs Canada
$request->validate(['test' => 'Utah'], ['test' => new Full('US')]); // Pass!
$request->validate(['test' => 'Alberta'], ['test' => new Full('CA')]); // Pass!
