Form Validation: Is full stack validation best practice?

Posted 10 months ago by ochirach


Is it best practice to have both front and back end form validation for applications where users are regularly posting information? Or is Laravel (back-end) validation good enough on its own?

In my case users will have to enter dates using the format dd/mm/yyyy (I can do this with a javascript but should I) only, all inputs should be stripped of all extra whitespace and I will use predictive input checks for all drop-down selections to name a few validation tests.
