angular-datetime

Codacy Badge Build Status codecov

This module includes a datetime directive and a parser service.

Features

  • This module includes:
    • A directive which can simulate datetime input within a text field.
    • A service which can convert a string of date into a Date object, and vice versa.
  • Support IE8. Note that old browsers (including IE8-11) require babel-polyfill to be installed.

Dependencies

Date string format

Apart from the formats provided officially, angular-datetime support some new tokens:

  • ZZ - represent timezone with colon (e.g. +08:00)

Demo

Installation

Via npm:

npm install angular angular-datetime-input --save
require("angular-datetime-input");

Or use pre-built dist:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/angular-datetime-input"></script>

Example

datetime service

// Setup dependency
angular.module("myApp", ["datetime"]);

// Use datetime parser
angular.controller("myController", function(datetime){
    // Create a parser
    var parser = datetime("yyyy-MM-dd");

    // Set to current date
    parser.setDate(new Date);
    parser.getText();    // -> "2015-01-30"

    // Parse a date string
    parser.parse("2015-01-30");
    parser.getDate();    // -> Date object
    
    // Set working timezone. Changing timezone will not affect date object but
    // date string (i.e. parser.getText()).
    parser.setTimezone("+0800");
    
    // Reset to default timezone.
    parser.setTimezone();

    // Catch the parsing error
    try {
        parser.parse("2015-123-456");
    } catch (err) {
        console.log(err);    // -> {code: "...", message: "...", ...}
    }
});

datetime directive

Check out the demo page for details.

<input type="text" datetime="yyyy-MM-dd" ng-model="myDate">
<input type="text" datetime="yyyy-MM-dd" ng-model="myDate" required>
<input type="text" datetime="yyyy-MM-dd" ng-model="myDate" datetime-timezone="+0300">
<input type="text" datetime="yyyy-MM-dd" ng-model="myDate" min="Jan 1, 1990" max="Dec 31, 2050">
<input type="text" datetime="yyyy-MM-dd" ng-model="myDate" datetime-model="yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss">
<input type="text" datetime="dd.MM.yyyy" ng-model="myDate" datetime-separator=",">

API reference

This module exports:

  • datetime service - a function to create DatetimeParser object.
  • datetimePlaceholder constant - a map that define the placeholder of each element.

datetimePlaceholder object

Just a plain object. Edit it in config phase to specify different placeholder.

Default value:

{
    year: "(year)",
    yearShort: "(year)",
    month: "(month)",
    date: "(date)",
    day: "(day)",
    hour: "(hour)",
    hour12: "(hour12)",
    minute: "(minute)",
    second: "(second)",
    millisecond: "(millisecond)",
    ampm: "(AM/PM)",
    week: "(week)"
}

datetime(format: String) => DatetimeParser

A function to construct a date parser. format is a string containing date definition tokens defined by Angular: https://docs.angularjs.org/api/ng/filter/date

DatetimeParser

A parser object which can convert String to Date and vice versa.

DatetimeParser.parse(text: String) => DatetimeParser

Parse text. This method might throw error.

DatetimeParser.getText() => String

Return formatted text.

DatetimeParser.setDate(date: Date) => DatetimeParser

Set date and conver date to text.

DatetimeParser.getDate() => Date

Return Date object.

These methods are usually used like:

date = parser.parse(text).getDate();
text = parser.setDate(date).getText();
DatetimeParser.setTimezone([timezone: String]) => DatetimeParser

Set the timezone of the parser. timezone is a string matching /[+-]\d{2}:?\d{2}/.

If timezone is not provided, reset timezone to browser default.

Setting timezone doesn't affect model value but update text.

time = parser.getDate().getTime();
parser.setTimezone(newTimezone);
time2 = parser.getDate().getTime();

console.assert(time == time2);
DatetimeParser.isEmpty() => boolean

Return true if there is any empty element.

DatetimeParser.isInit() => boolean

Return true if all elements are set.

DatetimeParser.unset() => DatetimeParser

Set all elements to empty.

Known issues

  • 2 digit year 'yy' is ambiguous when converting datestring back to date object (Ex. 14 -> 2014, 1914, ...). You should avoid it.
