Vue 3 Datepicker

This is a basic (at least for now) reimplementation of in Vue 3 and with greatly cleaned up code.

All date manipulation and formatting are done via the amazing date-fns library, so it's a direct dependency of this picker.


Package is available on NPM:

npm i vue3-datepicker

The component is packaged mainly for use with bundlers, if you require a browser build - post an issue.


For more examples see


Props and attributes

Attribute fallthrough is enabled, so any attribute you apply to the component will be passed down to the input.

All props which accept formatting strings for dates use date-fns formatting function under the hood, so see that function's documentation for patterns.

Main interaction to date selection is done via v-model with Date as expected type of the value passed.

Full props documentation is available at

Package is transpiled and should be usable for everyone with ES6 and above, but the styling of the datepicker itself uses CSS Grid and CSS variables.
