The Documentation has been moved to GitHubs Wiki Pages, but I will keep a table of contents list here and some basic instructions.

Basic Instructions

You can pass up to 2 arguments to the tail.DateTime constructor, the first parameter is required and need to be an Element, a NodeList, a HTMLCollection, an Array with Element objects or just a single selector as string, which calls the querySelectorAll() method on its own. The second parameter is optional and, if set, MUST be an object with your tail.DateTime options.
