Create Angular 9 Calendar with ngx-bootstrap datepicker Example and Tutorial

In this tutorial, we'll see how to create an Angular 9 calendar UI with the datepicker component available from ngx-bootstrap.

We'll learn to build a calendar component using bootstrap and ngx-bootstrap datepicker component.

Date pickers are commonly used in web apps for choosing dates.

Dates can be selected by navigating between various dates using UI.

The ngx-bootstrap library provides a datepicker component with many configuration options that you can use to customize the calendar view in your Angular 9 web app.

Throughout this tutorial, we will learn with steps to build a calendar component.

Initializing an Angular 9 Calendar App with Angular CLI

Let's start bu initilizing a new Angular 9 app for our calendar example using Angular CLI.

We need to have the following prerequisites:

  • Node.js and NPM installed on your development machine,
  • Angular CLI v9 installed on your machine.

Generating your Angular 9 Project

Open a new command-line interface and run the following command:

ng new angular-9-calendar-example

Navigate to your project's folder using:

cd angular-9-calendar-example

Adding Bootstrap to Angular 9

Next, we need to integrate bootstrap and ngx-bootstrap with your Angular 9 project.

First, run the following command to install bootstrap 4 from npm:

npm install bootstrap --save

Next, install the ngx-bootstrap package:

npm install ngx-bootstrap --save

Importing and Configuring the Datepicker Component

Open the angular.json file and add the following styling:

"styles": [
     "node_modules/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css",
     "node_modules/ngx-bootstrap/datepicker/bs-datepicker.css",
     "src/styles.css"
]

Next, we need to import the date picker component. Open src/app/app.module.ts file and update it as follows:

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';

import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
import { BsDatepickerModule } from 'ngx-bootstrap/datepicker';

@NgModule({
  declarations: [
    AppComponent
  ],
  imports: [
    BrowserModule,
    BrowserAnimationsModule,
    BsDatepickerModule.forRoot()
  ],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})

export class AppModule { }

Adding a Calendar UI in your Angular 9 Template

Next, let's add a calendar component. Open the src/app/app.component.html file and add the following HTML code:

<div class="container">
  <div class="row">
    <div class="col-xs-12">
      <input type="text"
            placeholder="Choose date"
            class="form-control"
            bsDatepicker>
    </div>

    <div class="col-xs-12">
      <input
        type="text"
        placeholder="Choose date"
        class="form-control"
        bsDatepicker
        bsDaterangepicker
        [bsConfig]="{ isAnimated: true }">
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

That's it, save your file and run the following command in your terminal:

ng serve

Conclusion

In this tutorial, we have a simple example of a calendar with the datepicker component of ngx-bootstrap.
