React Validify

CircleCI Coverage Status

No dependencies, simplest way to validate and manage form state with hooks!


npm install react-validify

V5 Hooks

Messing around with a new syntax that keeps it easy to wrap your own inputs. This api lets you trigger a blur event when needed, which will trigger initial validation. If there are errors from that, typing onChange will validate until there are no longer errors. Still need to support a few more cases and add tests

import Input from './input';
import Submit from './submit';
import { Form, rules } from 'react-validify';

const { required, email } = rules;

const App = () => {
  let [values, setValues] = React.useState({ email: 'test' });
  // console.log(fields, 'herere');
  return (
        email: [required, email],
        date1: [greaterThanDate2],
        name: [required],
      <Input name="email" />
      <Input name="name" />
      <Input name="date1" />
      <Input name="date2" />
      <Submit />

Add useField to your own inputs inside the Form wrapper:

import React from 'react';
import { useField } from 'react-validify';

export default props => {
  let { handleChange, handleBlur, value, errors } = useField(;

  return (
      {errors ? <p>{errors[0]}</p> : null}
        onChange={event => handleChange(}

Add useSubmit to trigger submitting or validating

import React from 'react';
import { useSubmit } from 'react-validify';

const Submit = props => {
  let { canSubmit, handleSubmit } = useSubmit();

  return (
      onClick={() => handleSubmit(values => console.log('submit!', values))}
      style={{ opacity: canSubmit ? 1 : 0.5 }}
      Submit Form
export default Submit;

Create rules, super quick:

const testRule = (value, values) =>
  value.length > values.date2.length ? "Date can't be longer" : null;

Rules get a value and values arguments. This means you can validate an input, or validate it against other form values.

Rules are guaranteed to run on a field after the first time the field is blurred, and then any time an error is present, they will run onChange.
