Using npm:

$ npm install react-infinite-calendar --save

Then, using a module bundler that supports either CommonJS or ES2015 modules, such as webpack:

// Using an ES6 transpiler like Babel
import InfiniteCalendar from 'react-infinite-calendar';
import 'react-infinite-calendar/styles.css'; // Make sure to import the default stylesheet

// Not using an ES6 transpiler
var InfiniteCalendar = require('react-infinite-calendar');

Alternatively, an UMD build is also available.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="react-infinite-calendar/styles.css">
<script src="react-infinite-calendar/dist/umd/react-infinite-calendar.js"></script>
var InfiniteCalendar = window.InfiniteCalendar.default;


Basic Example

import React from 'react';
import { render } from 'react-dom';
import InfiniteCalendar from 'react-infinite-calendar';
import 'react-infinite-calendar/styles.css'; // only needs to be imported once

// Render the Calendar
var today = new Date();
var minDate = Number(new Date()) - (24*60*60*1000) * 7; // One week before today

beforeSelect Function Callback invoked before the state is mutated. Can be used to prevent the state from being changed by returning false. Example: function(date) { return true / false; }
onSelect Function Callback invoked after beforeSelect() returns true, but before the state of the calendar updates
afterSelect Function Callback invoked after the state of the calendar has sucessfully been updated
onScroll Function Callback invoked when the scroll offset changes. function (scrollTop: number) {}
onScrollEnd Function Callback invoked 150ms after the last onScroll event is triggered. function (scrollTop: number) {}
keyboardSupport Boolean true Keyboard support (left, right, up, down, enter)

React Infinite Calendar has few dependencies. It relies on the great work done by react-virtualized/VirtualScroll for handling virtual scrolling logic and Moment.js for handling date manipulation. It also has the following peer dependencies: react, react-dom, react-addons-shallow-compare, and react-addons-css-transition-group.
