Looking for a time picker or a datetime picker?

React-Date-Picker will play nicely with React-Time-Picker and React-DateTime-Picker. Check them out!

Getting started

Compatibility

Your project needs to use React 16.3 or later. If you use an older version of React, please refer to the table below to find a suitable React-Date-Picker version.

React version Newest compatible React-Date-Picker version
≥16.3 latest
≥16.0 7.x

React-Calendar, on which React-Date-Picker relies heavily, uses modern web technologies. That's why it's so fast, lightweight and easy to style. This, however, comes at a cost of supporting only modern browsers.

Legacy browsers

If you need to support legacy browsers like Internet Explorer 10, you will need to use Intl.js or another Intl polyfill along with React-Date-Picker.

Installation

Add React-Date-Picker to your project by executing npm install react-date-picker or yarn add react-date-picker.

Usage

Here's an example of basic usage:

import { useState } from 'react';
import DatePicker from 'react-date-picker';

type ValuePiece = Date | null;

type Value = ValuePiece | [ValuePiece, ValuePiece];

function MyApp() {
  const [value, onChange] = useState<Value>(new Date());

  return (
    <div>
      <DatePicker onChange={onChange} value={value} />
    </div>
  );
}

Custom styling

If you want to use default React-Date-Picker and React-Calendar styling to build upon it, you can import them by using:

import 'react-date-picker/dist/DatePicker.css';
import 'react-calendar/dist/Calendar.css';
