# OmgValidator

OmgValidator is a collection of custom validators for Rails 3.x. These are simple validators that mostly use regular expressions for common validation requirements, including:

  • Alpha-dash characters

  • Alphanumeric characters

  • Alpha characters

  • Dates

  • Email addresses

  • IP addresses

  • US and Canadian (or compatible) Phone numbers

  • US and Canadian (or compatible) Postal/Zip Codes

  • Strong passwords

  • URL

  • US (or compatible) Zip Code

Using the gem is easy. Just add it to your gemfile.

gem "omg_validator", "~> 0.0.8"

Run bundle install and then use them in your models. For example:

validates :postal_code, postal_or_zip_code: true

Think of this package as a swiss army knife for your validation needs. It larges replaces the need to use validates_format_of validation helper method.
