Anchor is a JavaScript library that lets you enforce high-level validation rules. It is used in Waterline and Sails to complement the type safety imposed by rttc.

(Built on top of the great work with https://www.npmjs.com/package/validator)



The up-to-date documentation for high-level anchor validation rules is maintained on the Sails framework website.

You can find a detailed reference of all validation rules under Concepts > Models & ORM > Validations.

For more details on standalone usage, see the source code in this repo.
