Has it happened to you so far that you have to write your own form messages / notifications? Did you manage to style it? Does that take you too long? The solution is jQuery plugins for validating data in forms that make it easy to create validation rules.
WHAT IS JQUERY?
Its motto is “write less, do more” and through special plugins, developers are given even more opportunities to simplify code and manipulate objects.
Validating a form (eg entering an email) is very useful because it shows the user a typing error message at the very moment of typing and before submitting the form itself. The developers emphasize that “validation can be disabled (if you are skilled enough) and major validations should be done in the backend before the data is entered into the database (if entered into the database) or compared with the data from the database.”
