Learn use jsCalendar
Getting started

Add the jsCalendar code on your HTML's <head> section.

<!-- jsCalendar style -->
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="jsCalendar.css">
<!-- jsCalendar script -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="jsCalendar.js"></script>

Then, add a jsCalendar element on your page's <body> section

<!-- my calendar -->
<div class="auto-jsCalendar"></div>

*All .auto-jsCalendar elements are initiated as a calendar, when the page's load event fire.



Using CDNs

Since jsCalendar has a Github and an NPM project, you can use free CDNs that distributes such projects.
Two such well-known CDNs are the Unpkg CDN and the JsDelivr CDN.


jsCalendar using the Unpkg CDN

Full example with all the files and their integrity hashes using unpkg here and using jsdelivr here (the hashes are the same).

Notice: When using CDNs, always include integrity hashes.

Themes
Included themes

The jsCalendar.css includes 3 basic themes. The "Default Theme", the "Material Theme" and "Classic Theme". For additional themes, check the Themes section.


Of course, all these themes are just a few lines of CSS code, thus you can easily create your own theme according to your needs.



Default theme

The default theme of the jsCalendar is simple and clear.

<!-- Default theme -->
<div class="auto-jsCalendar"></div>
Material theme

For a minimalistic approach, try the simple Material theme.

<!-- Material theme -->
<div class="auto-jsCalendar material-theme"></div>
Classic theme

For a more old fashion look, try the Classic theme.

<!-- Classic theme -->
<div class="auto-jsCalendar classic-theme"></div>
Theme colors

Each one of the built-in themes has 5 color versions:
blue, yellow, orange, red, green
The blue color is the default.


For example the green version of the default theme is

<!-- Green theme -->
<div class="auto-jsCalendar green"></div>




Or give a try on the red version of the material theme.

<!-- Red material theme -->
<div class="auto-jsCalendar material-theme red"></div>
Parameters

You can customize each jsCalendar instance by defining data-* parameters on its HTML element or by passing them on the dynamic javascript creation of the calendar.

	});
	// Make changes on the day name elements

Get & Set Instances v1.4.3

The library maintains a list of jsCalendar instances created, based on the id of their target. This is helpful if you want to control an automatically created calendar. Calendars that their target element does not have an id, are not saved but you can manually binding them to a custom id.


API methods syntax

Get instancejsCalendar.get( id )
Set instancejsCalendar.set( id, calendar )
Remove instance from the listjsCalendar.del( id )

Parameters

idThe string id of the target element or a custom id
calendarA jsCalendar instance

Example code

<!-- My calendar element -->
<div class="auto-jsCalendar" id="my-calendar"></div>
Get auto-jsCalendar by target id<br>

You can edit the jsCalendar.lang.template.js file provided, to support a new language.


Open the template, then find and translate all the green text you see below.

// Language code
code : 'en',
// Months of the year
months : [
    'January',
