A lightweight jQuery plugin for quickly creating a calendar widget and an input based date picker on your web page. Fully customizable via CSS.

How to use it:

1. Load the jQuery calendar plugin after jQuery library in your Html document.

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/calendar.js"></script>

2. Create an empty element with CSS class of 'jquery-calendar'. The plugin will automatically generate a calendar widget into it.

<div class="jquery-calendar"></div>

3. Create a text field with CSS class of 'date-picker'. The plugin will automatically turn the input filed into a date picker.

<input class="date-picker" type="text" value="2014-7-1">

4. Custom the calendar & date picker styles in your CSS.
