Laravel 5 Full Calendar Helper

Latest Stable Version Total Downloads Latest Unstable Version License

For Laravel 4.2: use the laravel-4 branch

This is a simple helper package to make generating http://fullcalendar.io in Laravel apps easier.

Installing

Require the package with composer using the following command:

composer require maddhatter/laravel-fullcalendar

Or add the following to your composer.json's require section and composer update

"require": {
	"maddhatter/laravel-fullcalendar": "~1.0"
}

Laravel 5.4 (and earlier)

Register the service provider in your app.php config file:

MaddHatter\LaravelFullcalendar\ServiceProvider::class,

And optionally create an alias:

'Calendar' => MaddHatter\LaravelFullcalendar\Facades\Calendar::class,

Laravel 5.5+

The provider and Calendar alias will be registered automatically.

You will also need to include fullcalendar.io's files in your HTML.

Usage

Creating Events

Using event():

The simpliest way to create an event is to pass the event information to Calendar::event():

$event = \Calendar::event(
    "Valentine's Day", //event title
    true, //full day event?
    '2015-02-14', //start time, must be a DateTime object or valid DateTime format (http://bit.ly/1z7QWbg)
    '2015-02-14', //end time, must be a DateTime object or valid DateTime format (http://bit.ly/1z7QWbg),
	1, //optional event ID
	[
		'url' => 'http://full-calendar.io'
	]
);

Implementing Event Interface

Alternatively, you can use an existing class and have it implement MaddHatter\LaravelFullcalendar\Event. An example of an Eloquent model that implements the Event interface:

class EventModel extends Eloquent implements \MaddHatter\LaravelFullcalendar\Event
{

    protected $dates = ['start', 'end'];

    /**
     * Get the event's id number
     *
     * @return int
     */
    public function getId() {
		return $this->id;
	}

    /**
     * Get the event's title
     *
     * @return string
     */
    public function getTitle()
    {
        return $this->title;
    }

    /**
     * Is it an all day event?
     *
     * @return bool
     */
    public function isAllDay()
    {
        return (bool)$this->all_day;
    }

    /**
     * Get the start time
     *
     * @return DateTime
     */
    public function getStart()
    {
        return $this->start;
    }

    /**
     * Get the end time
     *
     * @return DateTime
     */
    public function getEnd()
    {
        return $this->end;
    }
}

IdentifiableEvent Interface

If you wish for your existing class to have event IDs, implement \MaddHatter\LaravelFullcalendar\IdentifiableEvent instead. This interface extends \MaddHatter\LaravelFullcalendar\Event to add a getId() method:

class EventModel extends Eloquent implements \MaddHatter\LaravelFullcalendar\IdentifiableEvent
{

	// Implement all Event methods ...

    /**
     * Get the event's ID
     *
     * @return int|string|null
     */
    public function getId();

}

Additional Event Parameters

If you want to add additional parameters to your events, there are two options:

Using Calendar::event()

Pass an array of 'parameter' => 'value' pairs as the 6th parameter to Calendar::event():

$event = \Calendar::event(
    "Valentine's Day", //event title
    true, //full day event?
    '2015-02-14', //start time, must be a DateTime object or valid DateTime format (http://bit.ly/1z7QWbg)
    '2015-02-14', //end time, must be a DateTime object or valid DateTime format (http://bit.ly/1z7QWbg),
	1, //optional event ID
	[
		'url' => 'http://full-calendar.io',
		//any other full-calendar supported parameters
	]
);

Add an getEventOptions method to your event class

<?php
class CalendarEvent extends \Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model implements \MaddHatter\LaravelFullcalendar\Event
{
	//...

	/**
     * Optional FullCalendar.io settings for this event
     *
     * @return array
     */
    public function getEventOptions()
    {
        return [
            'color' => $this->background_color,
			//etc
        ];
    }

	//...
}

Create a Calendar

To create a calendar, in your route or controller, create your event(s), then pass them to Calendar::addEvent() or Calendar::addEvents() (to add an array of events). addEvent() and addEvents() can be used fluently (chained together). Their second parameter accepts an array of valid FullCalendar Event Object parameters.

Sample Controller code:

$events = [];

$events[] = \Calendar::event(
    'Event One', //event title
    false, //full day event?
    '2015-02-11T0800', //start time (you can also use Carbon instead of DateTime)
    '2015-02-12T0800', //end time (you can also use Carbon instead of DateTime)
	0 //optionally, you can specify an event ID
);

$events[] = \Calendar::event(
    "Valentine's Day", //event title
    true, //full day event?
    new \DateTime('2015-02-14'), //start time (you can also use Carbon instead of DateTime)
    new \DateTime('2015-02-14'), //end time (you can also use Carbon instead of DateTime)
	'stringEventId' //optionally, you can specify an event ID
);

$eloquentEvent = EventModel::first(); //EventModel implements MaddHatter\LaravelFullcalendar\Event

$calendar = \Calendar::addEvents($events) //add an array with addEvents
    ->addEvent($eloquentEvent, [ //set custom color fo this event
        'color' => '#800',
    ])->setOptions([ //set fullcalendar options
		'firstDay' => 1
	])->setCallbacks([ //set fullcalendar callback options (will not be JSON encoded)
        'viewRender' => 'function() {alert("Callbacks!");}'
    ]);

return view('hello', compact('calendar'));

Sample View

Then to display, add the following code to your View:

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/moment.js/2.9.0/moment.min.js"></script>
    <script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/fullcalendar/2.2.7/fullcalendar.min.js"></script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/fullcalendar/2.2.7/fullcalendar.min.css"/>


    <style>
        /* ... */
    </style>
</head>
<body>
    {!! $calendar->calendar() !!}
    {!! $calendar->script() !!}
</body>
</html>

Note: The output from calendar() and script() must be non-escaped, so use {!! and !!} (or whatever you've configured your Blade compiler's raw tag directives as).

The script() can be placed anywhere after calendar(), and must be after fullcalendar was included.

This will generate (in February 2015):

You can’t perform that action at this time.
