Super Tiny jQuery & HTML5 Date Picker Plugin

Super Tiny jQuery & HTML5 Date Picker Plugin

A super lightweight and simple jQuery plugin to display a clean date picker as you click on an input/toggle button.

How to use it:

1. Include the jQuery datepicker plugin's CSS in the head of your document.

<link href="css/jquery.datepicker.css" rel="stylesheet">

2. Include the jQuery datepicker plugin's script at the end of the document.

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.datepicker.js"></script>

3. Create a text input with data-select="datepicker" attribute to enable the date picker when clicked on.

<input type="text" name="date" id="date" data-select="datepicker">

4. You can also add a toggle button with data-toggle="datepicker" attribute next the input field to open the date picker instead.

<button type="button" data-toggle="datepicker">

5. Default strings.
