Updated Laravel component for fullcalendar package base on Edo Freriks original package

1.0.5 2020-07-30 23:40 UTC

This package is auto-updated.

Last update: 2020-08-01 20:51:06 UTC


Notice: This is a fork of Edofre/laravel-fullcalendar package, which I have grown to love and use. This package is now code compliant for the newer versions of Laravel 7 and FullCalendar v5. This version will now install adding the required NPM packages directly without Bower or the fxp/composer-asset plugin.


If you are upgrading from a previous version I would remove Edofre/laravel-fullcalendar package, any unneeded Bower/fxp/composer-asset plugin components and any FullCalendar config and FullCalendar CSS/JS files from that previous package in your public folder.

Use with Laravel/Homestead

This package will NOT install properly under Laravel/Homestead at this time because of VirtualBox Issues.


The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

To install, either run

$ php composer.phar require schedulemycoach/laravel7-fullcalendar

or add

"schedulemycoach/laravel7-fullcalendar": "^1.0.5"

to the require section of your composer.json file.


The fxp/composer-asset plugin is no longer required for this package to install properly. We have converted this package to use Foxy. This plugin enables you to download NPM packages through composer and is included as part of this package. You can find more info on this page:


Add the ServiceProvider to your config/app.php

'providers' => [

And add the facade

'aliases' => [
        'Fullcalendar' => schedulemycoach\Fullcalendar\Facades\Fullcalendar::class,

Publish assets and configuration files

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=config
php artisan vendor:publish --tag=fullcalendar

The Config File

By publish the vendor config file you will find a new file called fullcalendar.php in the /config folder. These configs allow you to load either the minified or non-minified CSS and JS for Fullcalander.

Google Calendar Inclusion

Per the Fullcalendar NPM package the google calendar CSS/JS files are now included and do not need to be loaded seperately.

Manually loading script files

By setting the both the include_scripts options in the config file to false the scripts will not be included when generating the calendar. If you want to manually include the scripts you can call the following static function in your header/footer/etc.

For the Full files


For the Minified files



Below is an example of a controller action configuring the calendar

    public function index()
        // Generate a new fullcalendar instance
        $calendar = new \schedulemycoach\Fullcalendar\Fullcalendar();

        // You can manually add the objects as an array
        $events = $this->getEvents();
        // Or you can add a route and return the events using an ajax requests that returns the events as json

        // Set options
            'locale'      => 'nl',
            'weekNumbers' => true,
            'selectable'  => true,
            'themeSystem' =>'bootstrap',
            /* Scripts need for this are not included in the package. See bootstrap theming at */
            'initialView' => 'dayGridMonth',
         /* options are dayGridMonth,dayGridWeek,dayGridDay,dayGrid,timeGridWeek,timeGridDay,timeGrid,listYear,listMonth,listWeek,listDay,list */
            // Add the callbacks
            'eventClick' => new \schedulemycoach\Fullcalendar\JsExpression("
                function(event, jsEvent, view) {

        // Check out the documentation for all the options and callbacks.

        return view('fullcalendar.index', [
            'calendar' => $calendar,

     * @param Request $request
     * @return string
    public function ajaxEvents(Request $request)
        // start and end dates will be sent automatically by fullcalendar, they can be obtained using:
        // $request->get('start') & $request->get('end')
        $events = $this->getEvents();
        return json_encode($events);

     * @return array
    private function getEvents()
        $events = [];
        $events[] = new \schedulemycoach\Fullcalendar\Event([
            'id'     => 0,
            'title'  => 'Rest',
            'allDay' => true,
            'start'  => Carbon::create(2016, 11, 20),
            'end'    => Carbon::create(2016, 11, 20),

        $events[] = new \schedulemycoach\Fullcalendar\Event([
            'id'    => 1,
            'title' => 'Appointment #' . rand(1, 999),
            'start' => Carbon::create(2016, 11, 15, 13),
            'end'   => Carbon::create(2016, 11, 15, 13)->addHour(2),

        $events[] = new \schedulemycoach\Fullcalendar\Event([
            'id'               => 2,
            'title'            => 'Appointment #' . rand(1, 999),
            'editable'         => true,
            'startEditable'    => true,
            'durationEditable' => true,
            'start'            => Carbon::create(2016, 11, 16, 10),
            'end'              => Carbon::create(2016, 11, 16, 13),

        $events[] = new \schedulemycoach\Fullcalendar\Event([
            'id'               => 3,
            'title'            => 'Appointment #' . rand(1, 999),
            'editable'         => true,
            'startEditable'    => true,
            'durationEditable' => true,
            'start'            => Carbon::create(2016, 11, 14, 9),
            'end'              => Carbon::create(2016, 11, 14, 10),
            'backgroundColor'  => 'black',
            'borderColor'      => 'red',
            'textColor'        => 'green',
        return $events;

You can then render the calendar by generating the HMTL and scripts

    {!! $calendar->generate() !!}


Run the tests by executing the following command:

composer test
