How to Make jQuery Calendar Plugin with Daily Events

<!-- jQuery -->
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.4.1.min.js"></script>
<!-- Underscore js -->
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/underscore.js/1.9.1/underscore-min.js"></script>

<script src="js/clndr.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

3. Build markup structure for calendar as follows:

        <div id="full-clndr" class="clearfix">
          <script type="text/template" id="full-clndr-template">
            <div class="clndr-controls">
              <div class="clndr-previous-button"><</div>
              <div class="clndr-next-button">></div>
              <div class="current-month"><%= month %> <%= year %></div>

            <div class="clndr-grid">
              <div class="days-of-the-week clearfix">
                <% _.each(daysOfTheWeek, function(day) { %>
                  <div class="header-day"><%= day %></div>
                <% }); %>
              <div class="days">
                <% _.each(days, function(day) { %>
                  <div class="<%= day.classes %>" id="<%= day.id %>"><span class="day-number"><%= day.day %></span></div>
                <% }); %>
            <div class="event-listing">
              <div class="event-listing-title">EVENTS THIS MONTH</div>
              <% _.each(eventsThisMonth, function(event) { %>
                  <div class="event-item">
                    <div class="event-item-name"><%= event.title %></div>
                    <div class="event-item-location"><%= event.location %></div>
                <% }); %>

4. Finally, initialize the plugin in jQuery document ready function with default settings.




5. To add events in calendar, load the plugin with following syntax.

$( function() {

  // PARDON ME while I do a little magic to keep these events relevant for the rest of time...
  var currentMonth = moment().format('YYYY-MM');
  var nextMonth    = moment().add('month', 1).format('YYYY-MM');

  var events = [
    { date: currentMonth + '-' + '10', title: 'Persian Kitten Auction', location: 'Center for Beautiful Cats' },
    { date: currentMonth + '-' + '19', title: 'Cat Frisbee', location: 'Jefferson Park' },
    { date: currentMonth + '-' + '23', title: 'Kitten Demonstration', location: 'Center for Beautiful Cats' },
    { date: nextMonth + '-' + '07',    title: 'Small Cat Photo Session', location: 'Center for Cat Photography' }

  clndr = $('#full-clndr').clndr({
    template: $('#full-clndr-template').html(),
    events: events,
    forceSixRows: true
