Unlock React Form Validation with Trivule: The Game-Changing Approach

If you love the simplicity of React, you’ll adore Trivule. This solution allows you to validate your forms easily and effectively. In this article, we will validate a form with two fields: email and message, to show how user-friendly and straightforward it is to use Trivule.

Creating the Project

To start, create a project with Vite:

npm create vite@latest
Enter fullscreen mode
Exit fullscreen mode

Follow the instructions to complete the setup. I chose the TypeScript option, but you can choose whichever suits you best.

Then, install Trivule:

npm install trivule
Enter fullscreen mode
Exit fullscreen mode

Validation Rules

  • Email: required, maximum 63 characters, must be a Gmail address.
  • Message: required, maximum 250 characters, must start with “Hello”.

Creating the React Component

Create a file form.tsx in your React working directory:

import React, { useEffect, SyntheticEvent } from "react";
import { TrivuleForm } from "trivule"; // Callback to define validation rules
const bindRules = (trivuleForm: TrivuleForm) => { trivuleForm.make({ email: { rules: "required|email|endWith:@gmail.com|max:63", messages: { endWith: "Only Gmail addresses are allowed", }, }, message: { rules: "required|startWith:Hello|max:250", }, });
}; // React Component
function Form() { const trivuleForm = new TrivuleForm({ invalidClass: "is-invalid" }); trivuleForm.afterBinding(bindRules); useEffect(() => { // The code runs once the form is found in the DOM trivuleForm.bind("#myForm"); }, []); const handleSubmit = (e: SyntheticEvent) => { if (!trivuleForm.passes()) { e.preventDefault(); return; } const data = trivuleForm.validated(); console.log(data); }; return ( <form id="myForm" onSubmit={handleSubmit}> <h3>Trivule + React-vite</h3> <div className="form-group"> <input type="text" name="email" /> <div className="alert alert-danger" role="alert"> <div data-tr-feedback="email"></div> </div> </div> <div className="form-group"> <textarea name="message"></textarea> <div className="alert alert-danger" role="alert"> <div data-tr-feedback="message"></div> </div> </div> <button type="submit">Submit</button> </form> );
} export default Form;
Enter fullscreen mode
Exit fullscreen mode

Integrating into the Application

Import and use the Form component in App.tsx:

import React from "react";
import "./App.css";
import Form from "./form"; function App() { return <Form />;
} export default App;
Enter fullscreen mode
Exit fullscreen mode

Styling Flexibility

Trivule is agnostic about the styling of your form. It provides an API that allows you to apply your own styles based on the validation status. You can define classes to indicate valid or invalid states, and Trivule will handle the rest.
