RESCalendar is a jQuery plugin to create a responsive, dynamic, scrolling, multi-language calendar interface that arranges the date slots on a horizontal line.

You can customize the event for each date in the JSON or an array of JS objects. Requires jQuery and moment.js libraries.

How to use it:

1. Import jQuery, moment.js and the RESCalendar plugin's files into the html file.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/rescalendar.css">
<script src="/path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/moment-with-locales.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/rescalendar.js"></script>

2. Create a container element in which you want to generate the calendar.

<div class="rescalendar" id="example"></div>

3. Define event data in the JavaScript as follows:

const eventData = [
      {
        id: 1,
        name: 'item1',
        startDate: '2019-03-01',
        endDate: '2019-03-03',
        customClass: 'yourClass'
      },
      {
        id: 2,
        name: 'item2',
        startDate: '2019-03-05',
        endDate: '2019-03-15',
        customClass: 'yourClass',
        title: 'Title 2'
      },
      {
        id: 3,
        name: 'item5',
        startDate: '2019-03-05',
        endDate: '2019-03-08',
        customClass: 'yourClass'
      }
]

4. Call the function on the container element and specify the date format. That's it.

$('#example').rescalendar({
  id: 'example',
  format: 'MM-DD-YYYY',
  data: eventData
  dataKeyField: 'name',
  dataKeyValues: ['item1', 'item2', 'item3']
});

5. Specify the language for the calendar. Default: en.

$('#example').rescalendar({
  locale: 'es'
});

6. More configuration options with default values.

$('#example').rescalendar({

  // initial date
  refDate: moment().format( 'YYYY-MM-DD' ),

  // the number of days to move on click
  jumpSize: 15,

  // calendar size
  calSize: 30,

  // disabled days
  disabledDays : [],

  // 0 = Sunday
  disabledWeekDays: [],

  // language strings
  lang: {
    'init_error' : 'Error when initializing',
    'no_data_error': 'No data found',
    'no_ref_date'  : 'No refDate found',
    'today'   : 'Today'
  }
  
});
