jQuery Validation Plugin - Form validation made easy

The jQuery Validation Plugin provides drop-in validation for your existing forms, while making all kinds of customizations to fit your application really easy.

Help the project

This project is looking for help! You can donate to the ongoing pledgie campaign and help spread the word. If you've used the plugin, or plan to use, consider a donation - any amount will help.

You can find the plan for how to spend the money on the pledgie page.

Getting Started

Include jQuery and the plugin on a page. Then select a form to validate and call the validate method.

    <input required>
<script src="jquery.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.validation.js"></script>

For more information on how to setup a rules and customizations, check the documentation.


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using grunt.

If you've wrote custom methods that you'd like to contribute to additional-methods.js, create a branch, add the method there and send a pull request for that branch.
