Introduction

Building a calendar can be troublesome, especially when you deal with recurring events. This package tries to solve this problem by making an easy to use event builder with extensibility.

The package is made for Laravel and uses Laravel Collections extensively.

For installing the package, just run and you are good to go.

$ composer require uruloke/lara-calendar

The service providers is autoloaded, so enjoy!

Example

Let's say we want to create an event which repeats every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We can generate this simply by doing the following:

$builder = new EventBuilder();
$builder->startsAt(Carbon::parse("2017-09-05 08:00"));
$builder->endsAt(Carbon::parse("2017-09-05 18:00"));
$builder->weekly([Monday::class, Tuesday::class, Wednesday::class, Thursday::class]);

// Dump the results
$builder->getNextEvents(3)

The dumped data for the next 3 events would then be:

Uruloke\LaraCalendar\EventCollection {#221
  #items: array:3 [
    0 => Uruloke\LaraCalendar\Models\Event {#225
      #start: Uruloke\LaraCalendar\Carbon {#230
        +"date": "2017-09-05 08:00:00.000000"
        +"timezone_type": 3
        +"timezone": "UTC"
      }
      #ends: Uruloke\LaraCalendar\Carbon {#231
        +"date": "2017-09-05 18:00:00.000000"
        +"timezone_type": 3
        +"timezone": "UTC"
      }
    }
    1 => Uruloke\LaraCalendar\Models\Event {#232
      #start: Uruloke\LaraCalendar\Carbon {#233
        +"date": "2017-09-06 08:00:00.000000"
        +"timezone_type": 3
        +"timezone": "UTC"
      }
      #ends: Uruloke\LaraCalendar\Carbon {#234
        +"date": "2017-09-06 18:00:00.000000"
        +"timezone_type": 3
        +"timezone": "UTC"
      }
    }
    2 => Uruloke\LaraCalendar\Models\Event {#235
      #start: Uruloke\LaraCalendar\Carbon {#236
        +"date": "2017-09-07 08:00:00.000000"
        +"timezone_type": 3
        +"timezone": "UTC"
      }
      #ends: Uruloke\LaraCalendar\Carbon {#237
        +"date": "2017-09-07 18:00:00.000000"
        +"timezone_type": 3
        +"timezone": "UTC"
      }
    }
  ]
}

Filters

Filter days out

There might be a specific day which you want to blacklist from your event. This can be achieved by using the withoutDay method. Just parse in a day and it will ignore that specific day.

$builder = new EventBuilder();
$builder->startsAt(Carbon::parse("2017-09-05 08:00"));
$builder->endsAt(Carbon::parse("2017-09-05 18:00"));
$builder->allWeekDays();
$builder->withoutDay(Carbon::parse("2017-09-07"));
