This Package provides validation for correct sort position values for arrays.


You can install the package via composer:

composer require elbgoods/laravel-sort-positions-rule

if you want to adjust the error message translation you can add the translation files to your project:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Elbgoods\SortPositionsRule\SortPositionsRuleServiceProvider" --tag=lang


An example array to validate

        'id' => 1,
        'sort_position' => 1,
        'name' => 'foo'
    ], [
        'id' => 2,
        'sort_position' => 2,
        'name' => 'bar'

To validate the sort position values you have to add the SortPositionsRule rule to your rule set for the whole array. You must pass in the array key for the sort position in the first parameter (sort_position in the example array). Optionally you can pass a start value in the second parameter if you don't want to start your sort position values with 1.

use Elbgoods\SortPositionsRule\Rules\SortPositionsRule;

// ...

$rules = [
    // ...
    'array_with_sortable_data' => ['array', new SortPositionsRule('sort_position', 0)],
    // ...


composer test
