validate.js is a lightweight client-side form validation plugin for jQuery that allows to validate and mask form fields using HTML5 data attributes and/or regular expressions.

How to use it:

1. Include the JavaScript file jquery-validate.js after you've loaded jQuery JavaScript library as this:

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery-validate.js"></script>

2. To validate your form, just add the following HTML data attributes to your form fields:

<input type="text" name="name" data-required>
<input type="text" name="price" id="price" placeholder="R$ 0,00" data-pattern="^(?:R\$)?\s*(\d+)(?:[,\.](\d)(\d)?)?\d*$" data-mask="R$ ${1},${2:`0`}${3:`0`}">

3. Include the JavaScript file jquery-validate.js after you've loaded jQuery JavaScript library as this:

  • data-conditional: Accepts one or more indexes separated by spaces from the 'conditional' object that should contain a the boolean return function.  
  • data-ignore-case: Specify if is case-insensitive. 
  • data-mask: Adds custom mask rules to the field.
  • data-pattern: Regular expression to validate the field
  • data-prepare: Accepts a index from the 'prepare' object that should contain a function to receive the field value and returns a new value treated.  
  • data-required: Specify if is required. 
  • data-trim: If true, removes the spaces from the ends in the field value. (The field value is not changed) false
  • data-validate: Used to call extensions.
<input type="text" name="name" data-required>
<input type="text" name="price" id="price" placeholder="R$ 0,00" data-pattern="^(?:R\$)?\s*(\d+)(?:[,\.](\d)(\d)?)?\d*$" data-mask="R$ ${1},${2:`0`}${3:`0`}">
...
