Localized Fullcalendar options

Posted by Daniel Hölbling on August 23, 2011

I usually try to avoid using too many jQuery plugins, especially for rather simple stuff like this. But displaying a calendar is pretty tricky (believe me - I wrote one using GDI+) and Fullcalendar has saved me countless hours so far.

One issue that cropped up now is that we needed our Fullcalendar to be localized in German. As with most things I came across so far, Fullcalendar already supports it - but the documentation is a bit cryptic on the issue so here is my localized options hash:

var localOptions = {
	buttonText: {
		today: 'Heute',
		month: 'Monat',
		day: 'Tag',
		week: 'Woche'
	monthNames: ['Jänner','Februar','März','April','Mai','Juni','Juli','August','September','Oktober','November','Dezember'],
	monthNamesShort: ['Jän','Feb','Mär','Apr','Mai','Jun','Jul','Aug','Sept','Okt','Nov','Dez'],
	dayNames: ['Sonntag','Montag','Dienstag','Mittwoch','Donnerstag','Freitag','Samstag'],
	dayNamesShort: ['So','Mo','Di','Mi','Do','Fr','Sa']

$('#calendar').fullCalendar($.extend({ ... your options ... }, localOptions));
