    Cannot select previous dates

    I know there is a closed issue on this, but I cannot still get it to work,

    For what I can see, I also can't select any date before the current one. It says it's fixed, I just can't find a way get it working. Any examples on this? Thank you

    Can't select dates in the past

    Is there something I'm missing from the config? I have :init="false" but my picker only lets me select today or any day after.

                        style="position: absolute" :z-index="999"
                        @change="(v) => newTask.start_date = v">
                        <input v-model="newTask.start_date" class="mt-1 block w-full rounded-md border-gray-300 shadow-sm focus:border-dark-slate-gray-200 focus:ring focus:ring-dark-slate-gray-200 focus:ring-opacity-50"
                               placeholder="Example initial value">

    Docs: Include dayjs as a requirement

    Based on #4 , dayjs is now a peerDependency. Due to this, users must install dayjs themselves.

    However, the documentation fails to address this requirement and states that only TailwindCSS is required.

  • 5

    ask: dayjs is bundled

    You can see https://bundlephobia.com/[email protected], the dayjs is become part of your library. This means people might have different dayjs version in their project. For this case, dayjs should become peerDependencies, not dependencies. We let users install their own dayjs.

    But this is just my opinion, you might have your own reasons for this decision.

    Fix format date


    Because of the default value of the startDate prop it's not possible to use the formatDate prop without overriding the startDate every time.

    startDate: {
          type: String,
          required: false,
          default: dayjs().format('YYYY-MM-DD'), // hardcoded format does not respect the formatDate prop


    I removed the default value which is using a hardcoded format and added a today fallback for the initialization of the startDatepicker variable instead.

    feat: Add "selectedDate" props to display selected date

    If "startDate" is earlier than "selectedDate", it enables the option to navigate between these dates without disabling.

    Close #13.

    Add "selectedDate" props to display selected date


    Add "selectedDate" props to display selected date If "startDate" is earlier than "selectedDate", it enables the option to navigate between these dates without disabling.

    Example of use:

    <VueTailwindPicker :start-date="startDate" :selected-date="selectedDate" @change="(v) => selectedDate = v"

    data(){ return:{ startDate: "2020-01-01", selectedDate: "2020-05-01", } }

    I'm working on it to make a commit

    Thanks for everything <3

    format-date and format-display is not working


    When the format is set DD-MM-YYYY or DD/MM/YYYY the component does not work.

    <VueTailwindPicker :formatDate="'DD-MM-YYYY'" :formatDisplay="'DD-MM-YYYY'" @change="(v) => value = v"> <input v-model="value" placeholder="Example initial value"> </VueTailwindPicker>

    Doesn't work with [email protected]

    While using this package I've noticed that when you use version 1.10.0 (currently latest release) of dayjs this package stops working. I've not put much thought into this and reverted back to using 1.9.7 after which my application started functioning again.

    Command used to downgrade: npm install [email protected] --save


    import VueTailwindPicker from 'vue-tailwind-picker'
    import 'dayjs/locale/nl-be';


    <VueTailwindPicker :formatDate="'DD-MM-YYYY'"
                       @change="(v) => form.day = v">
        <jet-input id="day" v-model="form.day" class="mt-1 block w-full"

    Unrelated question!


    I saw you had a bottom nav bar component on tailwind components, and I really liked the SVG's you used. image

    Could you share where you got them from? Thanks so much, Parkerr
