Date Range Picker for Twitter Bootstrap

This date range picker component for Twitter Bootstrap creates a dropdown menu from which a user can select a range of dates. I created it while building the UI for Improvely, which needed a way to select date ranges for reports.

If invoked with no options, it will present two calendars to choose a start and end date from. Optionally, you can provide a list of date ranges the user can select from instead of choosing dates from the calendars. If attached to a text input, the selected dates will be inserted into the text box. Otherwise, you can provide a custom callback function to receive the selection.

This component relies on Twitter Bootstrap, Datejs and jQuery.

Basic usage:

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="date.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="daterangepicker.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="bootstrap.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="daterangepicker.css" />

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {

Additional options allow:

  • Custom callback handler called when the date range selection is made
  • Setting initial start and end dates for the calendars
  • Overriding all labels in the interface with localized text
  • Bounding the minimum and maximum selectable dates
  • Starting the calendar week on any day of week
  • Overriding the direction the dropdown expands (left/right of element it's attached to)
  • Setting the date format string for parsing and printing dates
  • Showing week numbers
  • Maximum selectable range (i.e. 3 days, 1 week, 12 months)
  • Month and year dropdowns

Syntax for all the options can be found in the examples.html file.
