Version 3.0.0 highlights

It is been a while since the last release, a lot of work has been done, and I'm glad to finally present a new version of Air Datepicker.

The main goal was to remove jQuery dependency, and I'm happy to announce that Air Datepicker is no longer need any dependency, hurray! 🥳

Now it's written in ES6, uses native css variables for easy customization, and it's all built with webpack.

Soooo, here is the full list of changes:

  • no more jQuery
  • improve rendering process - remove redundant cell render when selecting date, which gave a large speed boost compared to the old version
  • date format tokens now use Unicode Technical Standard
  • TypeScript support
  • added selectedDates option, to be able to select dates from the start
  • added a possibility to create custom buttons
  • now one could change selected range by dragging dates
  • added container option which allows you to place datepicker in a custom element
  • navTitles can receive a function and could render dynamically
  • dateFormat now can receive a function
  • onSelect and onRenderCell callbacks are now receive a single object as an argument instead of multiple parameters
  • selectDate now receives second parameter with options
  • onChangeMonth, onChangeYear, onChangeDecades are replaced with single option onChangeViewDate
  • localization now must be provided as an object instead of string as it was before


  • To run project run npm i, then npm run dev:serve.
  • If you want to report a bug, please provide steps and code to reproduce it or create a live example. You could use this template for creating sandbox
  • If you have a question please ask it on StackOverflow with tag air-datepicker
  • If you have a proposal or PR please submit it to the main branch - please follow code style according to .eslint configuration. Also make sure that your effort is aligned with project roadmap - my goal is to keep datepicker clean and lightweight (under 15kb) without overcomplications or narrowly focused features

Thank you! 😊
