Django Tempus Dominus

Django Tempus Dominus provides Django widgets for the Tempus Dominus Bootstrap 4 DateTime date and time picker.

A Note About the Future of This Package

The parent project to this package, Tempus Dominus, is being reworked. This package will not receive any feature updates until the parent project releases version 6, which will deprecate jQuery and Bootstrap as dependencies. When that occurs, we'll update this package to support v6.


  • From PyPI: pip install django-tempus-dominus

Then add tempus_dominus to INSTALLED_APPS in your Django settings.

Usage & Django Settings

The following settings are available:

  • TEMPUS_DOMINUS_LOCALIZE (default: False): if True, widgets will be translated to the selected browser language and use the localized date and time formats.
  • TEMPUS_DOMINUS_INCLUDE_ASSETS (default: True): if True, loads Tempus Dominus and moment JS and CSS from Cloudflare's CDN, otherwise loading the JS and CSS are up to you.

Three widgets are provided:

  • DatePicker
    • Defaults to YYYY-MM-DD
    • Defaults to L if TEMPUS_DOMINUS_LOCALIZE is True
  • DateTimePicker
    • Defaults to YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss
    • Defaults to L LTS if TEMPUS_DOMINUS_LOCALIZE is True
  • TimePicker
    • Defaults to HH:mm:ss
    • Defaults to LTS if TEMPUS_DOMINUS_LOCALIZE is True

In your Django form, you can use the widgets like this:

from django import forms
from tempus_dominus.widgets import DatePicker, TimePicker, DateTimePicker

class MyForm(forms.Form):
    date_field = forms.DateField(widget=DatePicker())
    date_field_required_with_min_max_date = forms.DateField(
                'minDate': '2009-01-20',
                'maxDate': '2017-01-20',
    In this example, the date portion of `defaultDate` is irrelevant;
    only the time portion is used. The reason for this is that it has
    to be passed in a valid MomentJS format. This will default the time
    to be 14:56:00 (or 2:56pm).
    time_field = forms.TimeField(
                'enabledHours': [9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16],
                'defaultDate': '1970-01-01T14:56:00'
                'input_toggle': True,
                'input_group': False,
    datetime_field = forms.DateTimeField(
                'useCurrent': True,
                'collapse': False,
                'append': 'fa fa-calendar',
                'icon_toggle': True,

Then in your template, include jQuery, {{ }}, and render the form:

    {# Include FontAwesome; required for icon display #}
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="">

    {# Include Bootstrap 4 and jQuery #}
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="" integrity="sha384-MCw98/SFnGE8fJT3GXwEOngsV7Zt27NXFoaoApmYm81iuXoPkFOJwJ8ERdknLPMO" crossorigin="anonymous">
    <script src="" integrity="sha384-q8i/X+965DzO0rT7abK41JStQIAqVgRVzpbzo5smXKp4YfRvH+8abtTE1Pi6jizo" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

    {# Django Tempus Dominus assets are included in `{{ }}` #}
    {{ }}
    <div class="container">
      <div class="row">
        <div class="col">
          <form method="post" action=".">
            {% csrf_token %}
            {{ form.as_p }}

This package is largely maintained by the staff of Wharton Research Data Services. We are thrilled that The Wharton School allows us a certain amount of time to contribute to open-source projects. We add features as they are necessary for our projects, and try to keep up with Issues and Pull Requests as best we can. Due to time constraints (our full time jobs!), Feature Requests without a Pull Request may not be implemented, but we are always open to new ideas and grateful for contributions and our package users.
