use Validator;

class AppServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider



* Register any application services.


* @return void


public function boot()


Validator::extend('is_even_string', function($attribute, $value, $parameters, $validator) {

if(!empty($value) && (strlen($value) % 2) == 0){

return false;


return true;




* Bootstrap any application services.


* @return void


public function register()





After,we have to give error message for new created custom validation rules, so register custom message open resoueces/lang/en/validation.php and put one line as i did bellow:
