Discussion on: Form Validation: You're (likely) doing it wrong

The point of my examples are to quickly (without regard for it not being declarative, which I know a thing or two about, see: dev.to/dexygen/accidentally-declar...) emulate what's going on in the article linked to at the very top -- please read it if you haven't. And using HTML5 validation is like crossing a river on a bridge that doesn't even go half way across. Building the rest of the bridge to link up is not ideal, just better to build an entire bridge to your exact specifications to begin with.

i guess i would take a different analogy and say that html5 validation is more like sinking pylons into the river bed / bedrock so that you can run a more fully-featured roadway across the river.
