Downloading the files

  • Create a file named spectre.js with the following content:
/**
 * This class supports validating Spectre framework (https://picturepan2.github.io/spectre/)
 */
(function($) {
    FormValidation.Framework.Spectre = function(element, options) {
        options = $.extend(true, {
            button: {
                selector: '[type="submit"]:not([formnovalidate])',
                // The class of disabled button
                disabled: 'fv-button-disabled'
            },
            err: {
                clazz: 'fv-help-block',
                parent: '^(.*)col-(xs|sm|md)-[0-9]+(.*)$'
            },
            // Spectre doesn't support feedback icon
            icon: {
                valid: null,
                invalid: null,
                validating: null,
                feedback: 'fv-control-feedback'
            },
            row: {
                selector: '.form-group',
                valid: 'has-success',
                invalid: 'has-danger',
                feedback: 'fv-has-feedback'
            }
        }, options);

        FormValidation.Base.apply(this, [element, options]);
    };

    FormValidation.Framework.Spectre.prototype = $.extend({}, FormValidation.Base.prototype, {
        /**
         * Specific framework might need to adjust the icon position
         *
         * @param {jQuery} $field The field element
         * @param {jQuery} $icon The icon element
         */
        _fixIcon: function($field, $icon) {
            var ns      = this._namespace,
                type    = $field.attr('type'),
                field   = $field.attr('data-' + ns + '-field'),
                $row    = $field.closest(this.options.fields[field].row || this.options.row.selector),
                $parent = $field.parent();

            // Place it after the container of checkbox/radio
            // so when clicking the icon, it doesn't effect to the checkbox/radio element
            if ('checkbox' === type || 'radio' === type) {
                if ($parent.is('label')) {
                    $parent.addClass('fv-' + type);
                    $icon.insertAfter($parent);
                }
            }
        }
    });
}(jQuery));
  • Create a file named spectre.css with the following content:
.fv-form-spectre .fv-control-feedback {
    width: 32px;    /* Height of Spectre input */
    height: 32px;
    line-height: 32px;
}

.fv-form-spectre .fv-help-block {
    margin-top: 5px;
}

.fv-form-spectre .fv-control-feedback {
    top: 21px;      /* Same as height of label */
}

/* Horizontal form */
.fv-form-spectre.form-horizontal .fv-control-feedback {
    top: 0;
}

.fv-form-spectre:not(.form-horizontal) label.sr-only~.fv-control-feedback {
    top: -4px;      /* labelHeight/2 - iconHeight/2 */
}

.fv-form-spectre .has-danger label,
.fv-form-spectre .has-danger .fv-help-block,
.fv-form-spectre .has-danger .fv-control-feedback {
    color: #e85600; /* Same as .has-danger */
}

.fv-form-spectre .has-success label,
.fv-form-spectre .has-success .fv-help-block,
.fv-form-spectre .has-success .fv-control-feedback {
    color: #32b643; /* Same as .has-success */
}

You should place spectre.js and spectre.css in formvalidation/dist/js/framework and formvalidation/dist/css directories respectively.

Including the library

<!-- Skeleton framework -->
<link href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/spectre.css/0.1.25/spectre.min.css" rel="stylesheet">

<!-- Optional: Include the Font Awesome for using some icons -->
<link href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.6.3/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />

<!-- FormValidation CSS file -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/vendor/formvalidation/dist/css/formValidation.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/vendor/formvalidation/dist/css/spectre.css">

<!-- jQuery v1.9.1 or higher -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="/vendor/jquery/jquery.min.js"></script>

<!-- FormValidation plugin and the class supports validating Skeleton form -->
<script src="/vendor/formvalidation/dist/js/formValidation.min.js"></script>
<script src="/vendor/formvalidation/dist/js/framework/spectre.js"></script>

Calling the plugin

When calling .formValidation(), you need to set the framework option:

$(form).formValidation({
    framework: 'spectre',
    ...
});
Some of forms use the row option to support multiple fields in the same row container
