Material Datetime Picker


A take on the material design date picker modal, built for the web.Works well with Materialize, or standalone.


npm install material-datetime-picker


The picker depends on Google’s Material Design icons (packaged with Materialize), or included in the head of the document;

<link href="" rel="stylesheet">

For best results also include Google’s Material Font Roboto;

<link href='' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

If you want to use this project as a standalone <script>, you can use dist/material-datetime-picker.js. You’ll need to include moment.js and rome.js as well:

<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>
<script src="material-datetime-picker.js" charset="utf-8"></script>


Manual (recommended)

The picker can be instantiated and interacted with manually;

import MaterialDateTimePicker from 'material-datetime-picker';
const picker = new MaterialDateTimePicker()
    .on('submit', (val) => console.log(`data: ${val}`))
    .on('open', () => console.log('opened'))
    .on('close', () => console.log('closed'));
    .on('click', () =>;

As form input

The picker is decoupled from any single form element for simplicity. However, it should be simple to link the picker to a form input or button. For instance, given the input element <input class="c-datepicker-input" />, the following could be written;

import MaterialDateTimePicker from 'material-datetime-picker';
const input = document.querySelector('.c-datepicker-input');
const picker = new MaterialDateTimePicker()
    .on('submit', (val) => {
      input.value = val.format("DD/MM/YYYY");
input.addEventListener('focus', () =>;


All options are optional, including the el.

    // DOM Element to attach the datepicker. This element will receive 
    // events when the data changes. If an input element, will be 
    // populated with formatted date and time chosen.
    // `el` must be a DOM Element object. Selectpr strings or wrappers
    // like a jQuery selection are not supported.
    el: document.querySelector('.c-datepicker-btn'),
    // if `el` is set, the format used to display the datetime in the input, 
    format: 'DD/MM/YY', 
    //  the default value of the picker
    default: moment(),
    // the container to append the picker. If you change this, you need to make
    // sure your element has a z-index > 0 so that it displays in front of the scrim.
    container: document.body,    
    // cosmetic classes that can be overriden
    // mostly used for styling the calendar
    styles: {
        scrim: 'c-scrim',
        back: 'c-datepicker__back',
        container: 'c-datepicker__calendar',
        date: 'c-datepicker__date',
        dayBody: 'c-datepicker__days-body',
        dayBodyElem: 'c-datepicker__day-body',
        dayConcealed: 'c-datepicker__day--concealed',
        dayDisabled: 'c-datepicker__day--disabled',
        dayHead: 'c-datepicker__days-head',
        dayHeadElem: 'c-datepicker__day-head',
        dayRow: 'c-datepicker__days-row',
        dayTable: 'c-datepicker__days',
        month: 'c-datepicker__month',
        next: 'c-datepicker__next',
        positioned: 'c-datepicker--fixed',
        selectedDay: 'c-datepicker__day--selected',
        selectedTime: 'c-datepicker__time--selected',
        time: 'c-datepicker__time',
        timeList: 'c-datepicker__time-list',
        timeOption: 'c-datepicker__time-option',
        clockNum: 'c-datepicker__clock__num'
    // date range to allow (see rome validator factories)
    dateValidator: null
