FullCalendar 3.5.0 and Scheduler 1.7.0 offers built-in Bootstrap 3 theme support. Include a Bootstrap theme’s stylesheet on your page, set the
themeSystem options to
'bootstrap3' and you’re off to the races. Big thanks to @joankaradimov for the bulk of the implementation.

We are aware that Bootstrap 4 is in beta. Once a stable version is released, it shouldn’t be hard to make an adapter for FullCalendar.
Performance and other things
Version 3.5.0 provides a 25% performance improvement for event rendering. This is because less internal Moment objects are used while rendering. Rendering performance will continue to improve in future versions.
There are also a number of bugfixes in 3.5.0. See the full changelog »
What the future brings
Some of you may have noticed that in the past few months, there has been a lot of activity on Github, but sadly, features are not being rapidly pumped out. This is because FullCalendar (and Scheduler) are undergoing some long-overdue refactoring. The technical debt accumulated over the course of the project’s 8 year lifespan has slowed the development of new features. This next round of changes will be released as a backwards-compatible 3.6.0 and will provide a solid base for future features.
Examples of features that will be much easier to implement:
- new views, like year view and multi-month view
- better responsive rendering and more sane HTML markup
- horizontal scrolling in agenda views
- recurring events
After 3.6.0 is released, many of the above features will be tackled. Then, we will start gearing up for 4.0.0, which will be a backwards-incompatible release that will include:
- removal of jQuery as a dependency
- better timezone handling
- selective feature loading via ES6 modules
- reworked settings, callback signatures, and exposed models
