This plugin adds support for the required attribute in browsers that don't support this HTML5 feature including < IE10, iOS, Android.

The plugin just activates the h5validate jQuery script by Eric Elliott

There is no further configuration required.

For HTML input elements that use the 'required' attribute, this attribute will trigger a focus on the input element if not filled in by the user.

Pattern matching and error mark up can be found here -

For email input pattern validation add a "h5-email" class to the input element.

The script is minified and set to load in the footer.
