Collection of ActiveModel/ActiveRecord validations

Installation (Rails 3)

In your Gemfile:

gem 'activevalidators', :require => 'active_validators'

In your models, the gem provides new validators like email, or url:

class User
  validates :email_address, :email => true
  validates :link_url,      :url   => true

Exhaustive list of supported validators:

  • email : checks the email based on the mail gem
  • url : checks the url based on a regular expression
  • phone : checks the phone number based on a regular expression


Lots of improvements can be made:

  • Add I18n of error messages
  • Implement new validators
  • ...

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
