Jalali Date support for user interface. Easy conversion of DateTimeFiled to JalaliDateTimeField within the admin site, view and templates.


To use this module you need to install jdatetime(and of course you need django) and pytz module which you can install it with easy_install or pip

Version Compatibility

We tested the latest version on the some Django versions

  • django == 3.0.3
  • django == 2.2.9
  • django == 1.11.27

But I think it will work properly on other versions as well.


pip install django-jalali-date

        'date': '%y/%m/%d',
