Installation

Step One

Include required scripts and css files in the head of your website

Required stuff:

  • jQuery
  • Moment.js with locales
  • Polyfill (only for IE to fix fill issue because IE does not recognize fill mehtod)
  • Meeting Dealer core files
HTML Code Example
<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html lang="en">
<head>
	...
	<!-- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -->
	<!-- CDN files jQuery and Moment .js -->
	<!-- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -->
	<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.min.js" integrity="sha256-FgpCb/KJQlLNfOu91ta32o/NMZxltwRo8QtmkMRdAu8=" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
	<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/moment.js/2.22.2/moment-with-locales.min.js"></script>
	<!-- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -->
	<!-- cdn.polyfill.io - only for IE, to fix fill issue (IE not recognize method fill) -->
	<!-- if you dont use IE, remove it -->
	<!-- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -->
	<script src="https://cdn.polyfill.io/v2/polyfill.min.js?features=default,Array.prototype.includes"></script>
	
	<!-- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -->
	<!-- appointment maker core files .js -->
	<!-- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -->
	<script src="js/jquery.appointment-maker.min.js"></script>
	
	<!-- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -->
	<!-- appointment maker css files .css -->
	<!-- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -->
	<link href="css/jquery.appointment-maker.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
	...
</head>
	...
</html>

Step Two

Add a container (e.g. div element) to your website

HTML Code Example
<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html lang="en">
	...
<body>	
	...
	<div id="appointment-maker"></div>
	...
</body>	
</html>

Step Three

Initiate Meeting Dealer by $(you selector).appointment_maker()

HTML Code Example
<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html lang="en">
	...
<body>	
	...
</body>
<script>
	$('#appointment-maker').appointment_maker();
</script>
</html>

Methods

get_appointment

$('appointment maker selector').get_appointment() returns object with all infos (Event, Date, Time)

get_appointment()
$('#appointment-maker').get_appointment()
return get_appointment()
{
  "date": [
    "3",
    "2018",
    "11",
    "14"
  ],
  "time": "12:30",
  "event": {
    "listid": 0,
    "name": "Gynecologist",
    "customid": "event_001"
  }
}

Options

eventlist (required) (object)

Object with all events to show
{... name: ...} name is required
{... customid: ...} name is optional. Can be used for own identifier (e.g. in database)

eventlist example
eventlist: {0: {'name': 'Gynecologist', 'customid': 'event_001'},
			1: {'name': 'Dentist', 'customid': 'event_002'},
			2: {'name': 'Ophthalmologist', 'customid': 'event_003'},
			3: {'name': 'Dermatologist', 'customid': 'event_004'},
			4: {'name': 'Other'}}

With eventlist you can also set different appointments for each event. Best practice is to use ajax

eventlist ajax request example
eventlist: function(){
	var result;
	$.ajax({
		url: 'php_scripts/get_events.php',
		method: "POST",
		async: false,
		data: {},
		success: function(data) {
			result = $.parseJSON(data);
		},
		error: function() {
			result = {};
		}
	});
	return result;
}
Example php file for eventlist
<?php 
echo json_encode(array( array('name' => 'Gynecologist', 
							  'customid' => 'event_001', 
							  'start_date' => '2018-11-01', 
							  'end_date' => '2019-02-01', 
							  'disabled_days' => array('2018-11-26', '2018-12-13'),
							  'disabled_weekdays' => array(0,1,6), //(0 = Sunday -> 6 = Saturday)
							  'timelist' => array('0' => null,
												  '1' => array('09:00', '10:00', '11:00', '12:00', '15:00','16:00'),
												  '2' => array('09:00', '10:00', '11:00', '12:00', '15:00','16:00'),

												  '6' => null)),
					    array('name' => 'Dentist', 
							  'customid' => 'event_001', 
							  'disabled_days' => array(),
							  'disabled_weekdays' => array(0,6), //(0 = Sunday -> 6 = Saturday)
							  'timelist' => array('0' => null,
												  '1' => array('09:30', '10:30', '11:30', '12:30'),
												  '2' => array('09:30', '10:30', '11:30', '12:30', '15:30','16:30'),
												  '3' => array('09:30', '10:30', '11:30', '12:30'),
												  '4' => array('09:30', '10:30', '11:30', '12:30', '17:00'),
