Form Validation: Is full stack validation best practice?

Posted 1 year 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.
