      import flatPickr from 'vue-flatpickr-component';
      import 'flatpickr/dist/flatpickr.css';
      export default {    
        data () {
          return {
            date: null,       
        components: {

    Detailed example

    This example is based on Bootstrap 4 input group

        <div class="form-group">
          <label>Select a date</label>
          <div class="input-group">
                    placeholder="Select date"               
            <div class="input-group-btn">
              <button class="btn btn-default" type="button" title="Toggle" data-toggle>
                <i class="fa fa-calendar">
                  <span aria-hidden="true" class="sr-only">Toggle</span>
              <button class="btn btn-default" type="button" title="Clear" data-clear>
                <i class="fa fa-times">
                  <span aria-hidden="true" class="sr-only">Clear</span>
        <pre>Selected date is - {{date}}</pre>
      // bootstrap is just for this example
      import 'bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.css';
      // import this component
      import flatPickr from 'vue-flatpickr-component';  
      import 'flatpickr/dist/flatpickr.css';
      // theme is optional
      // try more themes at - https://flatpickr.js.org/themes/
      import 'flatpickr/dist/themes/material_blue.css';
      // localization is optional
      import {Hindi} from 'flatpickr/dist/l10n/hi.js';
      export default {
        name: 'yourComponent',
        data () {
          return {
            // Initial value
            date: new Date(),
            // Get more form https://flatpickr.js.org/options/
            config: {
              wrap: true, // set wrap to true only when using 'input-group'
              altFormat: 'M j, Y',
              altInput: true,
              dateFormat: 'Y-m-d',
              locale: Hindi, // locale for this instance only          
        components: {

    As plugin

      import Vue from 'vue';
      import VueFlatPickr from 'vue-flatpickr-component';
      import 'flatpickr/dist/flatpickr.css';

    This will register a global component <flat-pickr>


    • The component can emit all possible events, you can listen to them in your component
    <flat-pickr v-model="date" @on-change="doSomethingOnChange" @on-close="doSomethingOnClose"></flat-pickr>
    • Event names has been converted to kebab-case.
    • You can still pass your methods in :config like original flatpickr do.

    Available props

    The component accepts these props:

    Attribute Type Default Description
    v-model / value String / Date Object / Array / Timestamp / null null Set or Get date-picker value (required)
    config Object { wrap:false } Flatpickr configuration options
    events Array Array of sensible events Customise the events to be emitted

    Please see CHANGELOG for more information what has changed recently.


    • ⚠️ Don't pass config option as inline literal object to :config prop.
    <!-- This will cause date picker to freeze -->

    • Vue.js cannot detect changes when literal object/arrays passed within template, see
