Form Verification


When we started brainstorming for Blaze we had the idea to offer our customers an embeddable javascript snippet that would automatically verify email input fields. Unfortunately, it got tossed on the back-burner due to a mix of limited resources and complications in how it could work.

Fast forward at least a year and the idea resurfaced. With that I had an epiphany on how I could get it working with limited development time by just making it use our existing API. After that it only took a few days of tinkering and a little bit of digging into some old code to get it working.

If you're collecting emails for a blog or to get sign ups to your own product, it's a great way to stop people from entering crap into your system. Check it out!
