Calendar Base Build Status

NPM

Base methods for generating calendars using JavaScript.

Supports IE 6+, Chrome 1+, Firefox 3+, Safari 4+.

Installation

npm install calendar-base

Or manually copy dist/calendar-base.min.js to your project.

Usage

var Calendar = require('calendar-base').Calendar,
    cal = new Calendar();

cal.getCalendar(2015, 0);
// Returns an Array with the calendar for January 2015.

Usage with AMD and global variables is available through dist/calendar-base.min.js.

Check an online example or browse the examples folder for some simple use cases.

Date object notation

Every returned day or date argument follows this notation:

{
    day: 14,
    month: 9,
    year: 1986,
    weekDay: 4,
    selected: false,
    siblingMonth: false,
    weekNumber: 42
}

Properties month and weekDay respect JavaScript’s Date.prototype.

Only day, month, and year are necessary as input parameters for methods that require a date.

Calendar(options)

Constructor for a new calendar generator.

The object options may have the following properties:

  • startDate: current selected starting date (default undefined)
  • endDate: current selected ending date (default undefined)
  • siblingMonths: whether to include the previous and next months’ days before and after the current month when generating a calendar (default false)
  • weekNumbers: whether to include the week number on each day
  • weekStart: day of the week, respects Date.prototype.getDay (default 0, Sunday)

Calendar.diff(dateOne, dateTwo)

Returns the difference in days between dateOne and dateTwo as a Number.

> Calendar.diff({ year: 2010, month: 0, day: 1 }, { year: 2010, month: 0, day: 10 });
-9

Calendar.interval(dateOne, dateTwo)

Returns the amount of days between dateOne and dateTwo as a Number.

> Calendar.interval({ year: 2010, month: 0, day: 1 }, { year: 2010, month: 0, day: 10 });
10

Calendar.compare(leftDate, rightDate)

Compares two date objects, returns:

  • -1 if leftDate < rightDate
  • 0 if leftDate == rightDate
  • 1 if leftDate > rightDate

Useful for quick comparisons such as sorting an array of dates.

> Calendar.compare({ year: 2010, month: 0, day: 1 }, { year: 2010, month: 0, day: 10 });
1

Calendar.daysInMonth(year, month)

Returns the amount of days in the given month as a Number.

> Calendar.daysInMonth(2010, 0);
31

Calendar.isLeapYear(year)

Returns whether the given year is a leap year, as a Boolean.

> Calendar.isLeapYear(2100);
false

Calendar.calculateWeekNumber(date)

Returns the week number for the specified date.

> Calendar.calculateWeekNumber({year: 1986, month: 9, day: 14 });
42

Calendar.prototype.getCalendar(year, month)

Returns an Array of dates with the days from the given month, always starting at the configured week day.

If sibling months is disabled, paddings are added as false to align the week days, otherwise the respective days from the previous or next months are included.

> var cal = new Calendar({ siblingMonths: true });
> cal.getCalendar(2015, 5);
[ { day: 31, weekDay: 0, month: 4, year: 2015, siblingMonth: true },
  { day: 1, weekDay: 1, month: 5, year: 2015 },
  { day: 2, weekDay: 2, month: 5, year: 2015 },
  ...
  { day: 4, weekDay: 6, month: 6, year: 2015, siblingMonth: true } ]

Calendar.prototype.setDate(date)

Alias to Calendar.prototype.setStartDate.

Calendar.prototype.setStartDate(date)

Sets the current selected starting date.

> cal.setStartDate({ year: 2015, month: 0, day: 1 });

Calendar.prototype.setEndDate(date)

Sets the current selected ending date.

> cal.setEndDate({ year: 2015, month: 0, day: 31 });

Calendar.prototype.isDateSelected(date)

Checks wheter the given date is inside the selected dates interval, returns a Boolean.

> cal.isDateSelected({ year: 2015, month: 0, day: 10 });
true

Important note on week numbers

Week numbers are calculated based on the ISO 8601 standard, which assumes calculations based on weeks starting on Mondays. Be extra careful displaying the week number if your calendar doesn't start on a Monday.
