About

This gem adds a very simple email address format validator to be used with ActiveRecord models in Rails 3.0+. It supports localized error messages.

Installation

Add the gem to your project's Gemfile:

gem 'email_validation'

Usage

This gem is an EachValidator, and thus is used with the validates method:

class User < ActiveRecord::Base
  validates :email_address,
            presence: true,
            email: true
end

The localization key is invalid_email, and can be specified in the localized YAML file like so:

en:
  activerecord:
    errors:
      messages:
        invalid_email: Email address is invalid.
