PrimeCalendar provides all the java.util.Calendar functionalities for Persian, Hijri, and Japanese dates. PrimeCalendar can be used in every JVM-based projects such as Java/kotlin applications, Android apps, etc.

This library contains three types of calendar systems as well as their conversion to each other.

| Calendar System | Provider Class | Descriptions | | --- | --- | --- | |Iranian| PersianCalendar | The most accurate solar calendar in use today. | |Islamic| HijriCalendar | A lunar calendar consisting of 12 lunar months in a year of 354 or 355 days. | |Gregorian| CivilCalendar | The common calendar which is used in most of the world. | |Japanese| JapaneseCalendar | The calendar which is used in Japan. |

    jcenter()
}

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.aminography:primecalendar:1.3.0'
}

        <artifactId>primecalendar</artifactId>
        <version>1.3.0</version>
    </dependency>
</dependencies>

Usage

Calendar objects can be instantiated by the class constructors or using CalendarFactory.

Java

PrimeCalendar calendar = new PersianCalendar();
// or
PrimeCalendar calendar = CalendarFactory.newInstance(CalendarType.PERSIAN);

Kotlin

val calendar = HijriCalendar()
// or
val calendar = CalendarFactory.newInstance(CalendarType.HIJRI)

• Functionalities

Exactly all of the standard Calendar functionalities are implemented in PrimeCalendar including set, add, roll, etc.
To see list of methods and fields, refer to the wiki page.

val civil = CivilCalendar()
civil.set(2019, 5, 17)
println(civil.longDateString)

civil.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_YEAR, 192)
println(civil.longDateString)

civil.add(Calendar.WEEK_OF_YEAR, 14)
println(civil.longDateString)

civil.roll(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK, -3)
println(civil.longDateString)

---------------------------
> Monday, 17 June 2019
> Thursday, 11 July 2019
> Thursday, 17 October 2019
> Monday, 14 October 2019

• Date Conversion

Conversion of dates to each other is simply possible by calling the converter methods.

// Converting calendar instance to PersianCalendar:
val persian = calendar.toPersian()

// Converting calendar instance to HijriCalendar:
val hijri = calendar.toHijri()

// Converting calendar instance to CivilCalendar:
val civil = calendar.toCivil()

// Converting calendar instance to JapaneseCalendar:
val japanese = calendar.toJapanese()

Also, it is possible to convert an instance of java.util.Calendar to an instance of PrimeCalendar. For example:

import java.util.Calendar

val calendar = Calendar.getInstance()

// Converting to PersianCalendar:
val persian = calendar.toPersian()

• Kotlin Operators

There is a different way to use get, set, and add methods. Using operators you can do it much simpler. Suppose that the calendar is an instance of PrimeCalendar:

get

val year = calendar.get(Calendar.YEAR)

// equivalent operations: val year = calendar[Calendar.YEAR] val year = calendar.year


> set
```kotlin
calendar.set(Calendar.MONTH, 7)

// equivalent operations:
calendar[Calendar.MONTH] = 7
calendar.set(Month(7))
calendar.set(7.month)
calendar.month = 7

add

calendar.add(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, 27)

// equivalent operations: calendar[Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH] += 27 calendar += DayOfMonth(27) calendar += 27.dayOfMonth


<br/>

### • Localization
You can localize digits, month names, and week day names by passing locale in constructor. For Persian and Hijri calendars, the default locale is set to Farsi and Arabic respectively.

```kotlin
val persian = PersianCalendar()
println(persian.longDateString)

---------------------------
> پنج‌شنبه، ۲۳ خرداد ۱۳۹۸
val persian = PersianCalendar(Locale.ENGLISH)
println(persian.longDateString)

---------------------------
> Thursday, 23 Khordad 1398
