I’m happy to announce the first release of the Password Validation plugin, an extension for the jQuery Validation plugin.
This plugin extends the jQuery validation plugin, providing two components:
- A function that rates passwords for factors like mixed upper/lower case, mix of characters (digits, special characters), length and similarity to a username (optional).
- A custom method for the validation plugin that uses the rating function to display a password strength meter, requiring the field to have a “good” rating. The text displayed can be localized.
More details can be found on the new plugin page.
