Calendar Rails 4

Hello. I want to build a week calendar (with options to toggle bewteen month and day visions) in a Rails 4 app.

I know that I can use a JS calendar, like FullCalendar, but, I dont know how to do this and if this will overload the client-side when i get a lot of events.

I tried to search about it, but I cant find nothing.

I used data_builder and did the month vision, but I want do this to a week vision too.

Can someone give me a hint or show me how to do this?

look at this that just got released: SimpleCalendar 1.1 released! | GoRails

Okay, and how can I transform this

Into this

The above image is a example that what I want to do.

Another thing is that when I use the SimpleCalendar and try to render the events, i get this error:

undefined local variable or method `start_time' for #<Event:0x49278d8>

[<img src="" border="0" width="320" height="74">](

Event.rb (model)
	class Event < ActiveRecord::Base
extend SimpleCalendar
has_calendar attribute: :start_time

There is an option called month_calendar that should give you that, but you can also look at the example that is on the documentation

Do you have a field in your database called start_time?

If this does not fill your requirements, you can also follow the railscasts on the comments on your stackoverflow post.

André, I have watched the revised episode of the calendar railscast but the episode cover only a month calendar, not a full day calendar (by hour). And, i dont have a field called start_time in my db.

I will take a look in that ajax example, thank you.

This is my own calendar helper:

I have build it from the rails casts. if you look at my weeks method there, you can probably do the same for a day. create an array of hours and use them to render what you want.

Hope it helps.

Thank you. I think that the simple_calendar can do this for me. I just need to learn how to render the hours inside the week, and how to render the events inside the hours.

I will take a look at your calendar helper, too.

Thank you again.
