Property Default Description
lang "en" An optional parameter that allows you to set the language of the calendar. Each additional language requires its own localization file
sundayFirst true An optional parameter that allows you to choose the first day of the week in the calendar. (For example in the U.S. week starts on Sunday in Russia on Monday). If true - then the first day will be Sunday, if false - it will be Monday.
years "80" An optional parameter that specifies the years range, for calendar to operate with. It may take 1 or 2 values separated by a hyphen. The values must be integers. A single value, such as "80" means that years range is: 80 years ago - the present year. Values separated by a hyphen, such as "1900-2000" sets the exact diapason from 1900, until the year 2000.
format An optional parameter that specifies the format of the returned date. Basic values: empty - will return date in ISO8601 format; "moment" - will return moment() object; "string formed by the rules of Moment.js" - will return date in that format. For example "YYYY-MM-DD" - will return "2013-07-15".
clickable true An optional parameter, if set to false - clicks on the days will do nothing.
