README

Custom Validators for Laravel

By Simon Hampel.

Installation

The recommended way of installing this validation library is through Composer:

Require the package via Composer in your composer.json

{
    "require": {
        "hampel/validate-laravel": "~2.1"
    }
}

Run Composer to update the new requirement.

$ composer update

The package is built to work with the Laravel Framework.

Open your Laravel config file config/app.php and add the service provider in the $providers array:

"providers" => array(

    ...

    "Hampel\Validate\Laravel\ValidateServiceProvider"

),

Notes

Version 2.0 of this library removes several rules previously available:

unique_or_zero and exists_or_zero have been removed as they were deemed to be of little value

domain, domain_in, tld and tld_in have been moved to a new package hampel/tlds.

The getTlds helper function has also been removed and you should install the hampel/tlds package to gain access to all new functions for retrieving an up-to-date list of all valid TLDs directly from IANA or other sources.

Usage

This package adds additional validators for Laravel - refer to Laravel Documentation - Validation for general usage instructions.

bool

The field under validation must be the equivalent of a "boolean" (either true or false) in a variety of forms. Acceptable values include: "1", "true", "on" and "yes", "0", "false", "off", "no", "", and NULL

ipv4_public

The field under validation must be a public IPv4 address - ie. not in the "private" or "reserved" ranges.

ipv6_public

The field under validation must be a public IPv6 address - ie. not in the "private" or "reserved" ranges.

ip_public

The field under validation must be a public IPv4 or IPv6 address - ie. not in the "private" or "reserved" ranges.

uploaded_file

The field under validation must be an uploaded file of type Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\File\UploadedFile, as returned from Input::file(). The file upload must also be valid, that is, the upload must have succeeded with an error return of UPLOAD_ERR_OK (see File Upload Error Messages Explained for more details on file upload errors)
