Bootstrap date and time pickers for rails (ready for rails 4).

Note: simple_form gem is supported.

Currently en, es, pt, zh-TW and ru locales are supported.

Note: please use it with bootstrap-rails


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'anjlab-widgets'

And then execute:

$ bundle


Add date and time pickers to your application.js

//= require anjlab/datepicker
//= require anjlab/timepicker

Add date and time pickers to your application.css.scss

@import 'twitter/bootstrap';

@import 'anjlab/datepicker';
@import 'anjlab/timepicker';

With FormBuilder

  <%= f.text_field :updated_at, value: Anjlab::Widgets.format_date(f.object.updated_at), "data-widget"=>"datepicker" %>
  <%= f.text_field :updated_at, value: Anjlab::Widgets.format_time(f.object.updated_at), "data-widget"=>"timepicker" %>

With simple_form!

You have two options here:

Overwrite standart :date, :datetime and :time inputs:

# config/initializers/simple_form.rb
SimpleForm.setup do |config|
  Anjlab::Widgets.simple_form as_default: true  #...


In your forms:

  <%= f.input :created_at # :datetime %>
  <%= f.input :created_at, as: :date %>
  <%= f.input :created_at, as: :time %>

Or use prefixed input types:

# config/initializers/simple_form.rb
SimpleForm.setup do |config|
  Anjlab::Widgets.simple_form  #...


In your forms:

  <%= f.input :created_at, as: :anjlab_datetime %>
  <%= f.input :created_at, as: :anjlab_date %>
  <%= f.input :created_at, as: :anjlab_time %>
