    AngularJS Material Calendar

    Build Status Code Climate Coverage Status Bower NPM Version NPM Downloads License

    A calendar directive for AngularJS and Angular Material Design. It's lightweight at ~2.1 kB, and has a lot of configurability.




    <script src=""><script>


    Install it via Bower

    bower install --save material-calendar

    Or add it to your dependencies in your bower.json file:

       "dependencies": {
        "material-calendar": "~0.2"


    npm install --save angular-material-calendar


    First off, check out the demo.

    The documentation still needs to be written. It should be pretty straight forward to figure out if you're brave by using the example/index.html file, which shows a full-fledged instance of the directive in action.

    Long story short, though, it's much improved by using dedicated click handlers, setting a ngModel if desired, taking all kinds of labels, and allowing output of HTML into the day blocks. There's also an option to display it with each day taking up full page width, which is great for small mobile screens and displaying content.

    By default, the standard CSS and template are included in the single compiled JavaScript file, so if you're just looking to kick the tires, that's all you should need to use. The default template is in src/angular-material-calendar.html for reference, but you can also load a custom template with the template-url attribute of the directive, which should be a url that the $http service will fetch and inject.

    <md-calendar flex layout layout-fill
      title-format="'MMMM y'"

    The related scope looks like this:

    angular.module("materialExample").controller("calendarCtrl", function($scope, $filter) {
        $scope.selectedDate = null;
        $scope.firstDayOfWeek = 0;
        $scope.setDirection = function(direction) {
          $scope.direction = direction;
        $scope.dayClick = function(date) {
          $scope.msg = "You clicked " + $filter("date")(date, "MMM d, y h:mm:ss a Z");
        $scope.prevMonth = function(data) {
          $scope.msg = "You clicked (prev) month " + data.month + "" + data.year;
        $scope.nextMonth = function(data) {
          $scope.msg = "You clicked (next) month " + data.month + "" + data.year;
        $scope.setDayContent = function(date) {
          // You would inject any HTML you wanted for
          // that particular date here.
            return "<p></p>";

    Hacking On It

    Use gulp to spin up the server and re-compile resources on the fly. The gulp default task does all that for you. Just make sure to Selenium is up and running:

    ./node_modules/protractor/bin/webdriver-manager update
    # In one terminal 
    webdriver-manager start
    # In separate terminal 

    Protractor is set up to run all the tests during development. JavaScript code is linted with eslint, too, so make sure that's not complaining about code styling or other issues.

    Unit tests are thanks to Karma, so run those at the same time while developing. They'll detect code changes and run automatically in the background:

    # In another terminal 
    karma start


    Pull requests are most welcomed! The build process requires strict linting of code, so please follow the established ESLint style guide.

    Also, the first round of the directive was just a proof-of-concept and test coverage is not complete, please do add tests for all new features and bug-fixes, too! Most submissions won't be merged without a test.

    Also, if you could kindly add an extra test that's not related to your submission just to help us get to 100% coverage, that would be very much appreciated!

    To Do

    • Unit tests (the basic setup is there, need to fill them out)
    • Verify the correct handling of timezones (tests?)
    • Write documentation
    • Spread the work
    • Add to cdnjs, jsdelivr, etc.
    • Automate the website update process after successful CI build


    npm i angular-material-calendar
