Livewire Resource Time Grid

This package allows you to build resource/time grid to show events in a "calendar" way. You can define resources as anything that owns an event, eg. a particular day, a user, a client, etc. Events loaded with the component will be then rendered in columns according to the resource it belongs to and the starting date of the event.

Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require asantibanez/livewire-resource-time-grid

Requirements

This package uses livewire/livewire (https://laravel-livewire.com/) under the hood.

It also uses TailwindCSS (https://tailwindcss.com/) for base styling.

Please make sure you include both of this dependencies before using this component.

Usage

In order to use this component, you must create a new Livewire component that extends from LivewireResourceTimeGrid

You can use make:livewire to create a new component. For example.

php artisan make:livewire AppointmentsGrid

In the AppointmentsGrid class, instead of extending from the base Component Livewire class, extend from LivewireResourceTimeGrid. Also, remove the render method. You'll have a class similar to this snippet.

class AppointmentsGrid extends LivewireResourceTimeGrid
{
    //
}

In this class, you must override the following methods

public function resources()
{
    // must return a Laravel collection
}

public function events()
{
    // must return a Laravel collection
}

In resources() method, return a collection holding the "resources" that own the events that are going to be listed in the grid. These "resources" must be arrays with key => value pairs and must include an id and a title. You can add any other keys to each "resource as needed"

Example

public function resources()
{
    return collect([
        ['id' => 'andres', 'title' => 'Andres'],
        ['id' => 'pamela', 'title' => 'Pamela'],
        ['id' => 'sara', 'title' => 'Sara'],
        ['id' => 'bruno', 'title' => 'Bruno'],
    ]);
}

In the events() method, return a collection holding the events that belong to each of the "resources" returned in the resources() method. Events must also be keyed arrays holding at least the following keys: id, title, starts_at, ends_at, resource_id.

Also, the following conditions are expected for each returned event:

  • For each event resource_id must match an id in the resources() returned collection.
  • starts_at must be a Carbon\Carbon instance
  • ends_at must be a Carbon\Carbon instance

Example

public function events()
{
    return collect([
        [
            'id' => 1,
            'title' => 'Breakfast',
            'starts_at' => Carbon::today()->setTime(10, 0),
            'ends_at' => Carbon::today()->setTime(12, 0),
            'resource_id' => 'andres',
        ],
        [
            'id' => 2,
            'title' => 'Lunch',
            'starts_at' => Carbon::today()->setTime(13, 0),
            'ends_at' => Carbon::today()->setTime(15, 0),
            'resource_id' => 'pamela',
        ],
    ]);
}

Now, we can include our component in any view. You must specify 3 parameters, starting-hour, ending-hour and interval. These parameters represent the times of a day the grid will render and how many divisions per hour it will display. (interval must be in minutes and less than 60)

Example

<livewire:appointments-grid
    starting-hour="8"
    ending-hour="19"
    interval="15"
/>

You should include scripts with @livewireResourceTimeGrid to enable drag and drop which is turned on by default. You must include them after @livewireScripts

@livewireScripts
@livewireResourceTimeGridScripts

This will render a grid starting from 8am til 7pm inclusive with time slots of 15 minutes.

example

By default, the component uses all the available width and height. You can constrain it to use a specific set of dimensions with a wrapper element.

Advanced Usage

UI customization

You can customize the behavior of the component with the following properties when rendering on a view:

  • resource-column-header-view which can be any blade.php view that renders information of a resource. This view will be injected with a $resource variable holding its data.
  • event-view which can be any blade.php view that will be used to render the event card. This view will be injected with a $event variable holding its data.
  • resource-column-header-height-in-rems and hour-height-in-rems can be used to customize the height of each resource view or time slot respectively. Defaults used are 4 and 8 respectively. These will be used as rem values.
  • before-grid-view and after-grid-view can be any blade.php views that can be rendered before or after the grid itself. These can be used to add extra features to your component using Livewire.

Example

<livewire:appointments-grid
    starting-hour="8"
    ending-hour="19"
    interval="15"
    resource-column-header-view="path/to/view/staring/from/views/folder"
    event-view="path/to/view/staring/from/views/folder"
    resource-column-header-height-in-rems="4"
    hour-height-in-rems="8"
    before-grid-view="path/to/view/staring/from/views/folder"
    after-grid-view="path/to/view/staring/from/views/folder"
/>

Interaction customization

You can override the following methods to add interactivity to your component

public function hourSlotClick($resourceId, $hour, $slot)
{
    // This event is triggered when a time slot is clicked.// 
    // You'll get the resource id as well as the hour and minute
    // clicked by the user
}

public function onEventClick($event)
{
    // This event will fire when an event is clicked. You will get the event that was
    // clicked by the user
}

public function onEventDropped($eventId, $resourceId, $hour, $slot)
{
    // This event will fire when an event is dragged and dropped into another time slot
    // You will get the event id, the new resource id + hour + minute where it was
    // dragged to
}

You can also override how events and resources are matched instead of using a resource_id and id respectively. To do this, you must override the following method

public function isEventForResource($event, $resource)
{
    // Must return true or false depending if the $resource is the owner of the $event
}

The base implementation for this method is

return $event['resource_id'] == $resource['id'];

You can customize it as you need. 👍
