Basic Example

import React from 'react'; import { render } from 'react-dom'; import InfiniteCalendar from 'react-infinite-calendar'; import 'react-infinite-calendar/styles.css'; // only needs to be imported once // Render the Calendar var today = new Date(); var lastWeek = new Date(today.getFullYear(), today.getMonth(), today.getDate() - 7); render( <InfiniteCalendar width={400} height={600} selected={today} disabledDays={[0,6]} minDate={lastWeek} />, document.getElementById('root') );

React Infinite Calendar has very few dependencies. It relies on react-tiny-virtual-list for virtualization and date-fns for handling date manipulation. It also uses recompose for extending the default functionality. It also has the following peerDependencies: react, and react-transition-group.
