Timezone selector for Angular JS

A simple AngularJS directive to create timezone select. It uses chosen to create auto-complete timezone select. Timezone information comes from moment. Countries timezone data comes from TimezoneDB.

The user is able to choose their timezone by either typing the name of their country, or the name of the timezone directly.

The angular model that is bound to this directive will be set to the timezone name as used by moment-timezone i.e Pacific/Auckland.

Install using bower

bower install angular-timezone-selector

Make your Angular module depend on module angular-timezone-selector.

angular.module('timezoneSelectExample', ['angular-timezone-selector']);

Then use directive timezone-selector.

<timezone-selector ng-model="timezone">


Options can be included as attributes in the html element.

  • sort-by ["offset"] - This lets the list be sorted by UTC offset instead of alphabetical order.
  • display-utc ["true"] - This show UTC offsets in the timezone names
  • show-local ["true"] - This detects local timezone's and includes at the top. If jsTimezoneDetect is installed if will include the detected timezone otherwise it fallback on moment js and list all timezones with the same browsers UTC offset.
  • set-local ["true"] - This sets ngModel to detected timezone if it's not set yet. jsTimezoneDetect must be installed for this option to work.
  • primary-choices ["space seperated timezone names"] - This lets you put important timezone's at the top of the list or include extra aliases. Use names from momentjs-timezone, which you can list with the command:;.
  • width - Sets the width of the element

An example of using the options is below:

    primary-choices="UTC GB WET GMT Asia/Macau"


The screenshot below show angular-selector in action with all options enabled:

Custom placeholder:

An example of using a custom placeholder message:

<div ng-init="translations.placeholder = 'SeLecT your timezone :)'">
        primary-choices="UTC GB WET GMT Asia/Macau"

or with translate:

<div ng-init="translations.placeholder = ('TIMEZONE_PLACEHOLDER' | translate)">
        primary-choices="UTC GB WET GMT Asia/Macau"
