    import flatPickr from 'vue-flatpickr-component';
    import 'flatpickr/dist/flatpickr.css';

    export default {
        data() {
            return {
                date: null,
        components: {

Detailed example

Using Bootstrap input group and Font Awesome icons

        <div class="form-group">
            <label>Select a date</label>
            <div class="input-group">
                    placeholder="Select date"
                <div class="input-group-append">
                    <button class="btn btn-default" type="button" title="Toggle" data-toggle>
                        <i class="fa fa-calendar">
                            <span aria-hidden="true" class="sr-only">Toggle</span>
                    <button class="btn btn-default" type="button" title="Clear" data-clear>
                        <i class="fa fa-times">
                            <span aria-hidden="true" class="sr-only">Clear</span>
        <pre>Selected date is - {{date}}</pre>

    // bootstrap is just for this example
    import 'bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.css';
    // import this component
    import flatPickr from 'vue-flatpickr-component';
    import 'flatpickr/dist/flatpickr.css';
    // theme is optional
    // try more themes at -
    import 'flatpickr/dist/themes/material_blue.css';
    // localization is optional
    import {Hindi} from 'flatpickr/dist/l10n/hi.js';

    export default {
        name: 'yourComponent',
        data() {
            return {
                // Initial value can be a date object as well
                date: '2020-10-16',
                // Get more form
                config: {
                    wrap: true, // set wrap to true only when using 'input-group'
                    altFormat: 'M j, Y',
                    altInput: true,
                    dateFormat: 'Y-m-d',
                    locale: Hindi, // locale for this instance only          
        components: {

As plugin

import {createApp} from 'vue';
import VueFlatPickr from 'vue-flatpickr-component';
import 'flatpickr/dist/flatpickr.css';
// Your app initialization logic goes here
const app = createApp().mount('#app')

This will register a global component <flat-pickr>


  • The component can emit all possible events, you can listen to them in your component
<flat-pickr v-model="date" @on-change="doSomethingOnChange" @on-close="doSomethingOnClose"/>
  • Event names has been converted to kebab-case.
  • You can still pass your callback methods in :config like original flatpickr do.

Available props

The component accepts these props:

Attribute Type Default Description
v-model String / Date Object / Array / Timestamp / null null Set or Get date-picker value (required)
config Object { wrap:false } Flatpickr configuration options
events Array Array of sensible events Customise the events to be emitted
