This library is a jQuery plugin for Bootstrap that lets you add a month calendar to your web page.

You can customize the display of the calendar and view it in several languages. You are also able to show calendar events by using an AJAX request with JSON data and add a legend.

You can add a function to the calendar to execute when the onclick event is triggered on a specific day.

Calendar example

For the calendar to function properly you need to include jQuery, and Twitter Bootstrap. View the manifestzabuto_calendar.jquery.json for more information on the supported versions.

Include the script zabuto_calendar.min.js and the stylesheet zabuto_calendar.min.css in your page.

<script src="{YOUR_PATH}/zabuto_calendar.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{YOUR_PATH}/zabuto_calendar.min.css">

Use this code to initialize the calendar:

<div id="my-calendar"></div>

<script type="application/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function () {
        $("#my-calendar").zabuto_calendar({language: "en"});
    });
</script>

Settings

You can customize the calendar with several settings:

  • language (string) Set the desired language of the calendar (de, en, es, fr, nl).
  • year (integer) Initialize the calendar in a different year than the current year.
  • month (integer) Initialize the calendar in a different month than the current month (January=1, December=12).
  • show_previous (boolean|integer) Disable the navigation to previous months completely or only allow a maximum number of months.
  • show_next (boolean|integer) Disable the navigation to next months completely or only allow a maximum number of months.
  • cell_border (boolean) Set a cell-border around the calendar itself, the days-of-week header and the individual days. Otherwise only a line is displayed.
  • today (boolean) Display today with a special badge.
  • show_days (boolean) Show the days-of-week header.
  • weekstartson (integer) Start the week on Sunday (0) or Monday (1).

Date Events

You are able to add date events by using a AJAX request with JSON data.

$("#my-calendar").zabuto_calendar( { ajax: { url: "{YOUR_URL}" } } );

The JSON data has to be an array of events in a specified format.

{date: yyyy-mm-dd, badge: boolean, title: string, body: string: footer: string, classname: string}

Modal Event Window

You can use the titlebody and footer elements of the element data in a Bootstrap.js modal window. The information will be shown with a click on the day of the event.

$("#my-calendar").zabuto_calendar( { ajax: { url: "{YOUR_URL}", modal: true } } );

Legend

You can add a legend to clarify the styling of the date events shown on the calendar. The legend consists of an array of objects in a specified format.

{type: string, label: string, badge: string, list: array}

Allowed values for type are 'text', 'block', 'list' and 'spacer'. The label is required for display type 'text' and optional for 'block'. It is not used for 'list' or 'spacer'. The badge can be used as an extra setting for display type 'text' to show badge information. The list contains an array of css classnames for the list of blocks for type 'list'.

Action onclick

You can add a function to the calendar to execute when the onclick event is triggered on a specific day.

$("#my-calendar").zabuto_calendar( { action: function() { myFunction(this.id); } } );

The function can be customized to your own needs. To retrieve the date you need to access the element information using the calendar day ID. You can also check if an event is available for this date.

function myFunction(id) {
    var date = $("#" + id).data("date");
    var hasEvent = $("#" + id).data("hasEvent");
}
