Using Calendarize

In your twig templates you can access the calendarize field as you would with any other field.

  1. Normal sub field access

     {{ event.calendarizeHandle.startDate.format('Y-m-d') }}
     {{ event.calendarizeHandle.repeats }}
  2. Added functionality

     {{'Y-m-d') }} // next occurence
     {{ event.calendarizeHandle.ends }} // boolean if it ends on date
     {{ event.calendarizeHandle.readable }} // readable string of the occurence
  3. RRule functionality

     {{ event.calendarizeHandle.rrule }} 
     {{ event.calendatizeHandle.getOccurences(limit) }}
     {{ event.calendatizeHandle.getOccurrencesBetween(start, end, limit) }}
  4. Added Query functionality through craft variables

    • This queries entries with calendarize fields with upcoming occurences. Can take any normal criteria. Returns array of entries.

        {% set entries = craft.calendarize.upcoming({ section: ['events'] }) %}
    • This queres entries with calendarize fields with occurences after the provided date. Can take any normal criteria as the second argument. Returns array of entries.

        {% set entries = craft.calendarize.after('2019-01-04', { section: ['events'] }) %}


  • RRULE This plugin leverages the use of the PHP RRule library. Docs for this can be found here PHP RRule. The rrule method returns the pre configured rrule with all its available methods. In addition, the getOccurences method returns all occurences of the entry with a limit of 10 by default and the getOccurrencesBetween returns the occurence between 2 dates. If the end date is null, it will not enforce the end date and give all occurence greater than the start date provided.
