JalaliDateTime is a Dart package that provides a convenient way to work with Jalali (Persian) dates while using the underlying DateTime structure for time-related methods. This approach is designed to maintain stability and efficiency in your code.


  • Jalali Date Representation: The package allows you to easily represent Jalali dates, including year, month, and day.

  • DateTime Compatibility: Public apis for JalaliDateTime is almost identical to DateTime.

  • Persian DateTime Format: Includes a built-in PersianDateTimeFormat almost identical to DateTimeFormat provided by Intl. You can find more information about the intl package here.

  • Efficient Design: Each Jalali instance seamlessly holds its corresponding DateTime, minimizing overhead and computational load.

  • Stability: For time-related or computation methods such as comparison, subtraction, and more, JalaliDateTime utilizes the DateTime methods, ensuring reliability and accuracy.

  • Super Lightweight: This package maintains a small footprint by relying on just two dependencies: intl and meta.


To use JalaliDateTime in your Dart project, add it as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file:

  jalali_date_time: <latest>

Then, run flutter pub get to fetch the package.


Here's a basic example of how to use JalaliDateTime:

import 'package:jalali_date_time/jalali_date_time.dart';

void main() {
  // Create a JalaliDateTime instance for the current date and time
  final jalaliNow = JalaliDateTime.now();

  // Access Jalali components
  final year = jalaliNow.year;
  final month = jalaliNow.month;
  final day = jalaliNow.day;
  print('today: $year-$month-$day'); // today: 1402-6-27
  // Convert JalaliDateTime to DateTime
  final dateTime = jalaliNow.getDateTime();

  // Perform DateTime operations
  final tomorrow = dateTime.add(const Duration(days: 1));

  // Convert DateTime back to JalaliDateTime
  final jalaliTomorrow = JalaliDateTime.fromDateTime(tomorrow);
  print(jalaliTomorrow == tomorrow.toJalali()); // true
  final tyear = jalaliTomorrow.year;
  final tmonth = jalaliTomorrow.month;
  final tday = jalaliTomorrow.day;
  print('tomorrow: $tyear-$tmonth-$tday'); // tomorrow: 1402-6-28
  // Compare JalaliDateTime objects
  if (jalaliTomorrow.isAfter(jalaliNow)) {
    print('Tomorrow is after today.'); // Tomorrow is after today.
  print(DateTime(1986, 4, 26, 01, 23, 40).toJalali()); // 1365-02-06 01:23:40 +0330

  print(PersianDateTimeFormat.yMMMMEEEEd().format(jalaliTomorrow)); // سه‌شنبه, 1402-شهریور-28 (correct in rtl form)
  print(jalaliTomorrow.toFormat('yMMMMEEEEd') == PersianDateTimeFormat.yMMMMEEEEd().format(jalaliTomorrow)); //true

  print(tomorrow.toFormat('yMMMMEEEEd')); // Thursday, September 19, 2023
  // DateTime
  print(tomorrow.toFormat('yMMMMEEEEd') == DateFormat.yMMMMEEEEd().format(tomorrow)); //true
