Minimal example

    <flat-pickr v-model="date"></flat-pickr>

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

Detailed example

Using Bootstrap input group and Font Awesome icons

    <div class="form-group">
      <label>Select a date</label>
      <div class="input-group">
                placeholder="Select date"               
        <div class="input-group-append">
          <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 can be a date object as well
        date: '2020-10-16',
        // 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 {createApp} from 'vue';
  import VueFlatPickr from 'vue-flatpickr-component';
  import 'flatpickr/dist/flatpickr.css';
  // Your app initialization logic goes here
  const app = createApp().mount('#app')

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 callback methods in :config like original flatpickr do.

Available props

The component accepts these props:

Attribute Type Default Description
v-model 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
