Simple Filterable Calendar In Pure JavaScript – vanilla-calendar

Description:

A simple, lightweight, vanilla JavaScript inline calendar that allows you to filter dates, set available dates/weekdays, enable/disable past dates and much more.

How to use it:

Import the vanilla-calendar’s JavaScript and CSS files:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="src/css/vanilla-calendar-min.css">
<script src="src/js/vanilla-calendar-min.js"></script>

Create a placeholder element for the inline calendar.

<div id="myCalendar" class="vanilla-calendar"></div>

Create a new instance and render a basic calendar inside the container you just created.

let myCalendar = new VanillaCalendar({
    selector: "#myCalendar"
})

Determine whether to enable past dates. Default: true.

let myCalendar = new VanillaCalendar({
    selector: "#myCalendar",
    pastDates: false
})

Set the available dates & weekdays. Default: empty array.

let myCalendar = new VanillaCalendar({
    selector: "#myCalendar",
    availableWeekDays: [
      {day: 'monday', others: values},
      {day: 'tuesday', others: values}
    ],
    availableDates: [
      {date: '2019-09-15', others: values},
      {date: '2019-09-16', others: values},
      {date: '2019-09-17', others: values},
      {date: '2019-09-25', others: values},
      {date: '2019-09-26', others: values}
    ]
})

Enable/disable date filtering. Default: false.

let myCalendar = new VanillaCalendar({
    selector: "#myCalendar",
    datesFilter: true
})

Localize the month & week names.

let myCalendar = new VanillaCalendar({
    selector: "#myCalendar",
    months: ['January', 'February', 'March', 'April', 'May', 'June', 'July', 'August', 'September', 'October', 'November', 'December'],
    shortWeekday: ['Sun', 'Mon', 'Tue', 'Wed', 'Thu', 'Fri', 'Sat']
})

Do some cool stuff as the user select a date.

let myCalendar = new VanillaCalendar({
    selector: "#myCalendar",
    onSelect: (data, elem) => {}
})

Customize the init date & today’s date.

let myCalendar = new VanillaCalendar({
    selector: "#myCalendar",
    date: new Date(),
    todaysDate: new Date()
})

API methods.

// re-init the calendar
myCalendar.init();

// destroy the calendar
myCalendar.destroy();

// reset the calendar
myCalendar.reset();

// update options
myCalendar.set(options);

      Did you figure out how to access date values from onSelector: (data, elem) => {}

        Thanks ! your code tweak worked but with one small change at line 2, where the console gave me a “illegal character error”.

        I changed this line->
        /*
        let d = date.getDay() – 1
        */
        With this ->
        /*
        let d = date.getDay() – 1
        */

    onSelect: (data, elem) => {
    console.log(data, elem);
    alert(data.date);
    }

    // data.date is the datevalue
