  1. Install package from npm.
npm install ng2-datepicker --save
  1. Include DatepickerModule into your application.
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { DatepickerModule } from 'ng2-datepicker';

import { DatepickerOptions } from 'ng2-datepicker';
import { getYear } from 'date-fns';
import locale from 'date-fns/locale/en-US';

// options sample with default values
options: DatepickerOptions = {
  minYear: getYear(new Date()) - 30, // minimum available and selectable year
  maxYear: getYear(new Date()) + 30, // maximum available and selectable year
  placeholder: '', // placeholder in case date model is null | undefined, example: 'Please pick a date'
  format: 'LLLL do yyyy', // date format to display in input
  formatTitle: 'LLLL yyyy',
  formatDays: 'EEEEE',
  firstCalendarDay: 0, // 0 - Sunday, 1 - Monday
  locale: locale, // date-fns locale
  position: 'bottom',
  inputClass: '', // custom input CSS class to be applied
  calendarClass: 'datepicker-default', // custom datepicker calendar CSS class to be applied
  scrollBarColor: '#dfe3e9', // in case you customize you theme, here you define scroll bar color
