jQuery Datepicker Rails plugin

This simple gem allows you to add a date picker field into your views.

Getting Started

  1. Add into your Gemfile:

    gem 'jquery-rails'
  2. Execute this command to install the needed js files:

    rails generate jquery:install --ui
  3. Insert into your Gemfile:

    gem 'jquery_datepicker'

Usage

Add this to your view.

<%= datepicker_input "user","birthday" %>

Where “user” is your model name and “birthday” the name of the datefield.

You can also use it with the form helper like:

<% form_for(@user) do |f| %>
  <%= f.datepicker 'birthday' %>
  <%= f.submit 'Create' %>
<% end %>

Nested attributes are permitted as well:

<% form_for(@user) do |f| %>
  <% f.fields_for(@nested) do |f2| %>
    <%= f2.datepicker 'birthday' %>
  <% end %>
  <%= f.submit 'Create' %>
<% end %>

You can pass options as it would be a normal text_field, plus all the datepicker options available (jqueryui.com/demos/datepicker/#options)

<%= datepicker_input(:foo, :att1, :minDate => -20, :maxDate => "+1M +10D", :tabindex => 70) %>
