PhonyRails

(In its early days :) called PhonyNumber)

This Gem adds useful methods to your Rails app to validate, display and save phone numbers. It uses the super awesome Phony gem (https://github.com/floere/phony).

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'phony_rails'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install phony_rails

Usage

Normalization / ActiveRecord Extension

In your model add:

class SomeModel < ActiveRecord::Base

  # Normalizes the attribute itself before validation 
  phony_normalize :phone_number, :default_country_code => 'US'

  # Normalizes attribute before validation and saves into other attribute
  phony_normalize :phone_number, :as => :phone_number_normalized_version, :default_country_code => 'US' 

  # Creates method normalized_fax_number that returns the normalized version of fax_number
  phony_normalized_method :fax_number
end

The :default_country_code options is used to specify a country_code when normalizing.

PhonyRails will also check your model for a country_code method to use when normalizing the number. So '070-12341234' with country_code 'NL' will get normalized to '317012341234'.

You can also do-it-yourself and call:

# Options:
#   :country_code => The country code we should use.
#   :default_country_code => Some fallback code (eg. 'NL') that can be used as default (comes from phony_normalize_numbers method).

PhonyRails.normalize_number('some number', :country_code => 'NL')

Validation

In your model use the Phony.plausible method to validate an attribute:

validates :phone_number, :phony_plausible => true

or the helper method:

validates_plausible_phone :phone_number

this method use other validators under the hood to provide:

  • presence validation using ActiveModel::Validations::PresenceValidator
  • format validation using ActiveModel::Validations::FormatValidator

so we can use:

validates_plausible_phone :phone_number, :presence => true
validates_plausible_phone :phone_number, :with => /^\+\d+/
validates_plausible_phone :phone_number, :without => /^\+\d+/
validates_plausible_phone :phone_number, :presence => true, :with => /^\+\d+/

the i18n key is :improbable_phone

Display / Views

In your views use:

<%= "some number string variable".phony_formatted(:format => :international, :spaces => '-') %>

Find by normalized number

Say you want to find a record by a phone number. Best is to normalize user input and compare to an attribute stored in the db.

Home.find_by_normalized_phone_number(PhonyRails.normalize_number(params[:phone_number]))

Changelog

0.1.12

  • Further loosened gemspec dependencies.

0.1.11

  • Better gemspec dependency versions by rjhaveri.

0.1.10

  • Changes from henning-koch.
  • Some pending fixes.

0.1.8

  • Improved validation methods by ddidier.

0.1.6

  • Added :as option to phony_normalize.

0.1.5

  • some tests and a helper method by ddidier.

0.1.2

  • Using countries gem as suggested by brutuscat.
  • Fixes bugs mentioned by ddidier.

0.1.0

  • Added specs.

0.0.10

  • Same fix as 0.0.9 but for phony_formatted method.

0.0.9

  • Fix for using same options Hash for all models.

0.0.8

  • Improved number cleaning not to remove '+' and leading 0's. Now works with national numbers starting with 0 followed by country_code. Eg. 032 in BE.

0.0.7

  • Fixed problem with '+' number

0.0.6

  • Fixed problem with '070-4157134' being parsed as US number

TODO

  • Make this work: Home.find_by_normalized_phone_number(Home.normalize_number(params[:phone_number])) So we use Home.normalize_number instead of PhonyRails.normalize_number. This way we can use the same default_country_code.
  • Make country_code method configurable.
