This tutorial shows how to add DayPilot Scheduler to an Angular 2 project created using Angular CLI.

See also the Angular 2 Scheduler Tutorial which shows how to create a new Angular 2 project manually. It also includes dynamically-loaded resources and events and a sample PHP backend.

This tutorial uses an older syntax for importing DayPilot components (DayPilot.Angular.* namespace) that is not compatible with AOT compilation.

For an example that uses Angular CLI 1.0, Angular 4 and supports AOT compilation please see the following tutorial:


Angular CLI requires Node.js 4.x with NPM 3.x installed.

Installing Angular CLI:

npm install -g angular-cli

New Angular 2 Project

Create a new Angular 2 project using Angular CLI:

ng new tutorial-angular-2-cli-scheduler

Add DayPilot Pro Angular 2 Module

Install the DayPilot Pro module from using the following npm command:

npm install --save

This will add the dependecy to package.json and download the DayPilot Pro module to node_modules/daypilot-pro-angular:

  "name": "tutorial-angular-2-cli-scheduler",
  "version": "1.0.1",
  "private": true,
  "angular-cli": {},

Adding Scheduler Reference to App Module

Add the Scheduler reference to the "declarations" section of src/app.module.ts (don't forget to import DayPilot namespace from 'daypilot-pro-angular' package):

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms';
import { HttpModule } from '@angular/http';
import { DayPilot } from "daypilot-pro-angular";

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';

  declarations: [
  imports: [
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

Adding Scheduler to the App Component

angular 2 cli scheduler

Now you can add the Scheduler to the main application component using <daypilot-scheduler> element:


<daypilot-scheduler [events]="events" [config]="config" #scheduler1></daypilot-scheduler>
<button (click)="add()">Add event</button>


import {Component, ViewChild} from '@angular/core';
import {DayPilot} from "daypilot-pro-angular";

  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
export class AppComponent {
  title = "Scheduler";
  last: number = 1;
  @ViewChild('scheduler1') scheduler1: DayPilot.Angular.Scheduler;

  events: any[] = [
    {start: "2016-09-09", end: "2016-09-10", id: 1, text: "Event 1", resource: "R1"}

  config: any = {
    scale: "Day",
    startDate: "2016-09-01",
    days: new DayPilot.Date("2016-09-09").daysInMonth(),
    timeHeaders: [
      {groupBy: "Month"},
      {groupBy: "Day", format: "d"}
    cellWidthSpec: "Auto",
    resources: [
      {name: "R1", id: "R1"},
      {name: "R2", id: "R2"},
      {name: "R3", id: "R3"},
    onTimeRangeSelected: args => {
      alert("start: " + args.start);
    onEventClicked: args => {
      alert("clicked: " + args.e.text());
    onEventMoved: args => {
    onEventResized: args => {

  add() {
    this.last += 1;{start: "2016-09-09", end: "2016-09-10", id: this.last, text: "Event " + this.last, resource: "R1"});

Building the Angular 2 CLI Project

Now you can build the project using ng build:

ng build

Or run it using ng serve:

ng serve

This command will start a web server at http://localhost:4200/. You can specify custom host and port if needed:

ng serve --host --port 8081

Sample Angular 2 CLI Project Download

The sample project download includes a blank project with modified package.json, app.module.ts, app.component.html, and app.component.ts.

The module dependencies are not included. You can download them by running:

npm install
