ActiveModel URL Validator
class UrlValidator < ActiveModel::EachValidator
def validate_each(record, attribute, value)
valid = begin
URI.parse(value).kind_of?(URI::HTTP)
rescue URI::InvalidURIError
false
end
unless valid
record.errors[attribute] << (options[:message] || "is an invalid URL")
end
end
end

Thank you. It works perfectly. :)

@keilmillerjr

One issue I am having is that blank urls not validated by presence are still resulting in an error. I'll fork this and see if I can fix it.

@mopx

@keilmillerjr just add :allow_blank => true

@mdoliwa

@toobulkeh

.kind_of?(URI::HTTP) handles HTTPS.
