Mobile-friendly Anything Picker Plugin For jQuery - AnyPicker

AnyPicker is a jQuery plugin for building a generic picker where the users are able to select anything (dates, times, fonts, icons, etc) from a themeable, mobile-friendly picker view.

Key features:

  • 4 built-in themes: Default, iOS, Android and Mobile Phone.
  • 4 layouts: popup, relative, fixed and inline.
  • Responsive and cross-platform.
  • CSS3 powered animations.
  • i18n/RTL/LTR support.
  • Tons of configuration options and callbacks.
  • Custom templates.

Install it via package managers:

$ npm install anypicker

# Bower
$ bower install anypicker

Basic usage:

1. Load the jQuery AnyPicker plugin's main style sheet and a theme CSS of your choice in the document.

<!-- Font -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="anypicker-font.css">
<!-- Core -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="anypicker.css">
<!-- Themes -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="anypicker-ios.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="anypicker-android.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="anypicker-windows.css">

2. Create a normal input field the picker should be appended to.

<input type="text" id="demo" readonly>

3. Load jQuery library and the jQuery AnyPicker's JavaScript file at the end of the document.

<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="anypicker.js"></script>

4. Call the plugin to create a datetime picker for the input field.

  mode: "datetime"
