Extract a Shared Yup Validation

In a growing React app with Yup validations, schemas can become repetitive. But since the validation schema is a JavaScript object, we can extract single validations, or a group of validations.

Here’s my schema definition for an address form:

validationSchema: yup.object().shape(addressValidation)

And the address validation:

const addressValidation = {
  address: yup.string().required(),
  address2: yup.string(),
  city: yup.string().required(),
  state: yup.string().required(),
  zip: yup.string().required(),
};

Reuse this helper anytime you need to collect an address.
