This is a Laravel composer package for validating URL's.

Validation for this package will include:

  • Validating for correct syntax, specified by internal regex libraries
  • Validating whether a given url exists or not
  • Checking if a given url exists on spam-related databases

Development Calendar:

17 March 2015 (St. Patricks Day!)

Today's development involved refactoring of code and file structure. I also added more formatted comments as appropriate.

An external library, php-multi-curl, was sourced to enable more reliable checking.

TO DO: Plan for proper unit testing - given the number of possible URL combinations to test, this will require some thinking and research.

16 March 2015

This is the very first day of development - not even considered a beta release yet.

Initial development today included:

  • Setting up classes to handle regex libraries (specifically for url syntax validation)
  • Setting up the initial base class for validation
  • Creating a Helpers class to manage miscellaneous functionality
  • Creating a class to hold adapted regex libraries (which will be sourced)
