A Flutter package for using Jalali (Shamsi, Solar or Persian) date. You can convert Jalali and Georgian dates to each other. #

Converted from the popular Javascript library jalaali-js.

Calendar conversion is based on the algorithm provided by Kazimierz M. Borkowski and has a very good performance.

Changes #

Added date formatter for custom printing of date objects.

Usage #

Add it to your pubspec.yaml file:

    shamsi_date: ^0.5.2

Jalali class is used for Shamsi (Jalali or Persian) date and Gregorian class is used for Gregorian date. They can be instantiated by using their constructor:

Jalali(year, month, day)
Gregorian(year, month, day)

month and day default to 1

You can convert Jalali date to Gregorian by using toGregorian() method and convert Gregorian to Jalali date by using toJalali() method.

You can check Jalali date validity by isValid() method. And find month length by monthLength getter. And check if the year is a leap year by isLeapYear() method.

You can also convert DateTime object directly to Jalali or Gregorian date by using:


And convert Jalali and Gregorian to DateTime by using toDateTime() method. And you can get Jalali and Gregorian dates for now by using now() factory.

You can get week day number of Jalali and Gregorian by using weekDay getter. Week days range from 1 to 7. Jalali week starts with shanbe and Gregorian week starts with monday.

Date formatting is easy. At first you should make a function for you custom formatting: Say you want to format as WeekDayName Day MonthName TwoDigitYear, call your function format1

String format1(Date d) {
  final f = d.formatter;

  return '${f.wN} ${f.d} ${f.mN} ${f.yy}';

Then pass your Jalali or Gregorian dates to this function. Or another example: Say you want to format as TwoDigitDay/TwoDigitMonth/FourDigitYear or DD/MM/YYYY, call your function format2

String format2(Date d) {
  final f = d.formatter;

  return '${f.dd}/${}/${f.yyyy}';

And use it like before.

DateFormatter has these getters:

  • y: year (whatever length it has)
  • yy: two digit year
  • yyyy: four digit year
  • m: month (whatever length it has)
  • mm: two digit month
  • mN: month name
  • d: day (whatever length it has)
  • dd: two digit day
  • wN: week day name

You can get Date formatter by using formatter getter on Jalali and Gregorian date objects. Simply cash this formatter in a final value and then use string interpolation (as we have shown in examples) for making your desired output. This way of formatting is more powerful (and arguably easier) than using templates.

Jalali and Gregorian classes are Comparable so you can compare them using compareTo method. You can also use comparison operators to compare them. They also support equals and hashCode functions.

Here is a complete example:

import 'package:shamsi_date/shamsi_date.dart';

main() {
  // Gregorian to Jalali conversion
  final g1 = Gregorian(2013, 1, 10);
  final j1 = g1.toJalali();
  print('$g1 in Gregorian is $j1 in Jalali');
  // prints: 2013/1/10 in Gregorian is 1391/10/21 in Jalali

  // Jalali to Gregorian conversion
  final j2 = Jalali(1391, 10, 21);
  final g2 = j1.toGregorian();
  print('$j2 in Jalali is $g2  in Gregorian');
  // prints: 1391/10/21 in Jalali is 2013/1/10  in Gregorian

  // check validity
  print('$j1 is valid? ${j1.isValid()}');
  // -> true

  // check leap year
  print('1390 is leap year? ${Jalali(1390).isLeapYear()}');
  // -> false

  // find month length
  print('1390/12 month length? ${Jalali(1390, 12).monthLength}');
  // -> 29

  // convert DateTime object to Jalali and Gregorian
  final dateTime =;
  print('now is $dateTime');
  print('now is ${Gregorian.fromDateTime(dateTime)} in Gregorian');
  print('now is ${Jalali.fromDateTime(dateTime)} in Jalali');

  // convert Jalali and Gregorian to DateTime
  print('$j1 as DateTime is ${j1.toDateTime()}');
  print('$g1 as DateTime is ${g1.toDateTime()}');

  // now() factory method
  print('now is ${} in Gregorian');
  print('now is ${} in Jalali');

  // find weekDay
  print('${j1}.weekDay = ${j1.weekDay}'); // -> 6
  print('${g1}.weekDay = ${g1.weekDay}'); // -> 4

  // formatting examples:

  // example one:
  String format1(Date d) {
    final f = d.formatter;

    return '${f.wN} ${f.d} ${f.mN} ${f.yy}';
  // prints: پنج شنبه 21 دی 91
  // prints: Thursday 10 January 13

  // example one:
  String format2(Date d) {
    final f = d.formatter;

    return '${f.dd}/${}/${f.yyyy}';
  // 21/10/1391
  // prints: 10/01/2013

  // comparing dates
  print(j1 > j2); // -> false
  print(j1 <= j2); // -> true
  print(g1 >= g2); // -> true
  print(g1.compareTo(g2)); // -> 0
  print(g1 == g2); // -> true
  print(g1 != g1); // -> false
