npm npm Build Status Dependency Status

A simple and reusable Datepicker component for React (with persian jalali calendar support) Demo.

This package uses react-persian-datepicker project under the hood.


The package can be installed via NPM:

npm install react-datepicker2 --save

At this point you can import react-datepicker2 and its styles in your application as follows:

import DatePicker from 'react-datepicker2';

Below is a simple example on how to use the Datepicker in a React view.

import React from 'react'
import moment from 'moment-jalaali'
import DatePicker from 'react-datepicker2';

export default class ReactClass extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    this.state = { value: moment() };
  render() {
    return <DatePicker
      onChange={value => this.setState({ value })}


The most basic use of the DatePicker can be described with:

<DatePicker onChange={value => this.setState({ value })} value={this.state.value} />

Local Development

The master branch contains the latest version of the Datepicker2 component. To start your example app, you can run npm install then npm start. This starts a simple webserver on http://localhost:8080.
