ValiFi

  • ValiFi is android library for validating fields or whole forms.
  • It's working with data binding and validations are visible immediately when user adds input.
  • It's highly customizable and simple for use.
  • works with kotlin

Features

  • predefined fields (password, email, username, ..)
  • forms for lots of fields
  • custom and asynchronous validations
  • option for own fields

How to use

Initialize the library

1. Add gradle dependency

implementation 'com.mlykotom:valifi:1.3.7'

2. Setup project with data binding

android{
    ...
    dataBinding.enabled = true
    ...
}

3. Install the library in application class

public class MyApplication extends Application {
    @Override
    public void onCreate() {
        ValiFi.install(this);
    }
}

Use in your code

1. Create field you want to validate

public final ValiFieldEmail email = new ValiFieldEmail();

2. Use it from layout

Library uses two-way data binding so be careful of adding android:text="@={...}"

<android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout
    ...
    app:errorEnabled="true"
    app:error="@{viewModel.email.error}">

    <android.support.design.widget.TextInputEditText
        ... 
        android:text="@={viewModel.email.value}"
        android:hint="E-mail address" />
</android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout>

...

<Button
    ...
    android:enabled="@{viewModel.email.valid}"
    android:text="Submit" />

3. Destroy the field

In order to prevent leaks, field must be destroyed before destroying the screen!

This is easily done by calling:

@Override
public void onDestroy() {
 email.destroy();
 super.onDestroy();
}

That's it!

When user types his e-mail, it will automatically validates input and enables/disables submit button.
