jQuery timeAutocomplete Plugin

What is this?

It's a time picker similar to how Google Calendar's time picker works for events. It's meant to be smart, sexy and intuitive.

Some things that make is super duper fantastic:

  • Start time defaults to users current time (within your set increment).
  • Tabbing out of the field without selecting a time will cause it to make an educated guess. Try typing a badly formatted time like 115 or 1 or 1pm or 28 then tabbing out.
  • If the end time is less than the start time, evaluate it to the opposite am/pm of the start time. Example: 7:00AM - 5... 5 will default to PM.
  • Fetch time in H:i:s format (13:30:00) for comparing/validating. Done so by calling $(input).data('timeAutocomplete').getTime()
  • Uses placeholder attribute if detected, if not, it uses our own placeholder text.
  • Oh, and it's tested :) - see tests/index.html to run tests
