Lumberjack Validation

CI Coveralls

This package provides a simple way to validate form input. At it's heart it is a thin wrapper around the Rakit Validation library. For documentation on the types of rules you can use refer to their (Github docs)[https://github.com/rakit/validation.

Once installed, register the Service Provider in config/app.php:

'providers' => [



You can now create Form objects that can be used to validate for your form submissions:

Create a Form Object

class ContactForm extends AbstractForm
    protected $rules = [
        'name' => 'required',
        'email' => 'required|email'

Use the form to validate input

Your form can be injected into your Lumberjack Controllers and then used this this:

use App\Forms\ContactForm;

class IndexController
    public function handle(ContactForm $form)
        if ($form->validate($_POST)) {
            // Everything's good - do something with the input
        } else {
            $errors = $form->errors();
            $values = $form->values();
            // Re-show the form with the errors and entered values
