Minimal Math Captcha JavaScript Library – jCaptcha.js


jCaptcha.js is a lightweight, vanilla JavaScript plugin which creates a simple, random, <canvas> based math captcha to protect against spam.

How to use it:

Insert the minified version of the jCaptcha.js library into the web page.

<script src="jCaptcha.min.js"></script>

Create an html form where you want to generate the math captcha.

<form class="form" action="">

  <input class="jCaptcha" type="text" placeholder="Type in result please">
  <button class="button" type="submit">Submit</button>


Initialize the math captcha.

var myCaptcha = new jCaptcha({

    // set callback function
    callback: function(response, $captchaInputElement) {

        if (response == 'success') {

            $captchaInputElement[0].placeholder = 'Submit successful!';


        if (response == 'error') {

            $captchaInputElement[0].placeholder = 'Please try again!';




Validate the math captcha on form submit.

document.querySelector('form').addEventListener('submit', function(e) {


  // captcha validate
