validates_email-helper suggestion

Reported by Jonas Grimfelt | April 22nd, 2009 @ 07:10 PM

Except for the validation of login-email under the hood, would be neat if one could reuse this validator in a clean way like:

validates_email :other_email

Right now I call Authlogic validator in a quite shady way. If the functionality is there, maybe a model validation helper would be convenient for less redundant code?

    Hmm, that's an interesting idea. You may be onto something. For the time being you could do something like

    validates_format_of Authlogic::Session::Base.validates_format_of_email_options

    I can see why you don't like that. Let me give this some more thought.

    Alright, I extracted the regular expressions into Authlogic::Regex. So you can do


    So you can call your own validates_format_of :other_email, :with => Authlogic::Regex.email

    Hope this helps.
