This is a super simple and lightweight jQuery plugin to provide client-side form validation without writing any JavaScript codes. With custom error messages and based on the native HTML5 data validation types and attributes. The plugin also has the ability to jump to the invalid form field when you click the submit button.

</script>
<script src="jquery-simple-validator.min.js"></script>

input:not([type="file"]).error,
textarea.error,
select.error {
  border: 1px solid red !important;

textarea.no-error,
select.no-error {
  border: 1px solid green !important;
}

div.error-field {
  color: red;
