Let's code

// Login form definition
$loginForm = (new Form)
    ->addInput('email', 'required|email|validate_email')
    ->addInput('password', 'required');

// Treatment
if ($loginForm->isValid()) {
    $email = $loginForm->email;
    $password = $loginForm->password;
    // Here we should log the user ;)
<?php if (!$loginForm->isValid('email')): ?>
    <div class="alert-error"><?= $loginForm->getInputErrorMessage('email') ?></div>
<?php endif; ?>
<input type="text" name="email" value="<?= $loginForm->email ?>" />

<?php if (!$loginForm->isValid('password')): ?>
    <div class="alert-error"><?= $loginForm->getInputErrorMessage('password') ?></div>
<?php endif; ?>
<input type="password" name="password" value="" />
