Using Webpack?

// webpack.config.js
plugins: [
    new webpack.ProvidePlugin({
      Vue: ['vue/dist/vue.esm.js', 'default'],
      jQuery: 'jquery',
      'window.jQuery': 'jquery',
      $: 'jquery',
      moment: 'moment',

Using Laravel Mix?

  • Update your webpack.mix.js file, ref
// webpack.mix.js
    'jquery': ['$', 'window.jQuery', 'jQuery'],
    'vue': ['Vue','window.Vue'],   
    'moment': ['moment','window.moment'],   

Icon Fonts missing?

  • Bootstrap v4 does not come with any icon fonts. You can import font-awesome v5 icons css.
// app.js
jQuery.extend(true, jQuery.fn.datetimepicker.defaults, {
    icons: {
      time: 'far fa-clock',
      date: 'far fa-calendar',
      up: 'fas fa-arrow-up',
      down: 'fas fa-arrow-down',
      previous: 'fas fa-chevron-left',
      next: 'fas fa-chevron-right',
      today: 'fas fa-calendar-check',
      clear: 'far fa-trash-alt',
      close: 'far fa-times-circle'

Usage Example

  <div class="container">
    <div class="row">
      <div class="col-md-12">
        <date-picker v-model="date" :config="options"></date-picker>

  // Import required dependencies 
  import 'bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.css';
  // Import this component
  import datePicker from 'vue-bootstrap-datetimepicker';
  // Import date picker css
  import 'pc-bootstrap4-datetimepicker/build/css/bootstrap-datetimepicker.css';
  export default {    
    data () {
      return {
        date: new Date(),
        options: {
          format: 'DD/MM/YYYY',
          useCurrent: false,
    components: {

As plugin

  import Vue from 'vue';
  import datePicker from 'vue-bootstrap-datetimepicker';
  import 'bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.css';
  import 'pc-bootstrap4-datetimepicker/build/css/bootstrap-datetimepicker.css';

This will register a global component <date-picker>


  • The component emits all available events
  • You can listen to them in your component like -
<date-picker v-model="date" @dp-hide="doSomethingOnHide" @dp-change="doSomethingOnChange"></date-picker>

Available props

The component accepts these props:

Attribute Type Default Description
v-model / value String / Date Object / moment / null null Set or Get date-picker value
config Object {} Datetime picker configuration options
wrap Boolean false Set this to true when wrapped in 'input-group'
