I'm having problems getting this to work - I'm not entirely sure where the tag gets the year/month from. Can you help?

masida (on May 6, 2007):

mrben,

You can use this template tag by putting this in your template:

{% month_cal 2007 5 %}

This would render the calendar for May 2007. Of course you can use variables instead of hardcoded year/month.

Hope that helps!

mrben (on May 9, 2007):

Hmmm - well, things are different anyway. First I got an AttributeError from line 42 - it didn't like date() as a method of a datetime object - and now when I load it it manages to load my events page (ie the same page) in the space where the calendar should be.

I'll keep fiddling....

atoponce (on May 30, 2007):

I've made a couple changes to the code, that others may find useful:

def month_cal(year=date.today().year, month=date.today().month):

This will draw the calendar dynamically based on the current month and year. Thus, you can call the variable in the template with no arguments or 2:

{% month_cal %} {# current month and year #}
{% month_cal 2007 6 %} {# specific june 2007 override #}

Also, your calendar draws the beginning of the week with Monday. Some prefer Sunday. This was easy with the following code change:

first_day_of_calendar = first_day_of_month - timedelta(first_day_of_month.weekday()+1)

and

if day.weekday() == 5:

Is it possible to view an example of the use of this?

#

f3afai (on April 3, 2008):

Can you put more instruction how to put all of the code into separate *.py files and html file, I'm new to this project

#

ludwigm (on August 1, 2008):

Change line 65 to terminate element correctly:

<th>{{ day|date:"D"|slice:":2" }}</th>

#

goober (on November 17, 2008):

Are there any updates for this snippet? Also, I tried using the templatetag and have included in my template file. For example,

{% load 129 %} {% month_cal 2008 11 %}

Can you elaborate a little bit more on the start_date and end_date attribute of the tag? Let's say, I have modified the from myapp.models import Event to party.models import Event based on the party model.

Thank you for your contribution.

jarofgreen (on July 26, 2009):

If you replace:

event_list = Event.objects.filter(start_dateyear=year, start_datemonth=month)

With:

event_list = Event.objects.filter(start_dategte=first_day_of_calendar, start_datelte=last_day_of_calendar)

Then appointments that are in the visible days of other months are also shown.

Or, for bonus points:

event_list = Event.objects.filter(end_dategte=first_day_of_calendar, start_datelte=last_day_of_calendar)

will include appointments that span multiple days

plungerman (on August 11, 2009):

using monthrange:

first_day_of_month = datetime.date(year, month, 1)

last_day_of_month = calendar.monthrange(year, month)

first_day_of_calendar = first_day_of_month - datetime.timedelta(first_day_of_month.weekday())

last_day_of_calendar = datetime.date(year,month,last_day_of_month[1]) + datetime.timedelta(7 - calendar.weekday(year,month,last_day_of_month[1]))

asinox (on August 16, 2009):

I want to know if this code will help me , i need that the user select initial date and final date from the same month of from one month to another in the same year, and in the template i need to show the 12 month's of the current year and show in different color the selected day's.... im new with Django, so i need to know if that will help me.
