General-purpose validator for ngModel.

Angular.js comes with several built-in validation mechanism for input fields (ngRequired, ngPattern etc.) but using an arbitrary validation function requires creation of a custom formatters and / or parsers. The ui-validate directive makes it easy to use any function(s) defined in scope as a validator function(s). A validator function will trigger validation on both model and input changes.


  • AngularJS


You can get it from Bower

bower install angular-ui-validate

Load the script files in your application:

<script type="text/javascript" src="bower_components/angular/angular.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="bower_components/angular-ui-validate/dist/validate.js"></script>

Add the specific module to your dependencies:

angular.module('myApp', ['ui.validate', ...])


We use Karma and jshint to ensure the quality of the code. The easiest way to run these checks is to use grunt:

npm install -g gulp-cli
npm install && bower install

The karma task will try to open Firefox and Chrome as browser in which to run the tests. Make sure this is available or change the configuration in karma.conf.js

Gulp watch

gulp watch will automatically test your code and build a release whenever source files change.

How to release

Use gulp to bump version, build and create a tag. Then push to GitHub:

gulp release [--patch|--minor|--major]
git push --tags origin master # push everything to GitHub

Travis will take care of testing and publishing to npm's registry (bower will pick up the change automatically). Finally create a release on GitHub from the tag created by Travis.
