A flexible & mobile-friendly jQuery date range picker which allows to select a date range from a stylish calendar popup with custom preset ranges. 

How to use it:

  • Click on the date range input or the calendar icon.
  • Select a date range from the popup window.
  • Click on the blank area of the popup and done.

Usage:

1. Load the required dateRangePicker.css in the header of the document.

<link href="css/dateRangePicker.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

2. Use the Open Sans font for better experience.

<link href="//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:300,400" rel="stylesheet">
<style>
body {
  font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif;
}
</style>

3. Load the jQuery library and the jquery.dateRangePicker.js script at the end of the document.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-2.1.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.dateRangePicker.js"></script>

4. Create a regular text field for the date range input.

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

5. Call the plugin on the text field and set the basic options.

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('#demo').DateRangePicker({
    startDate: '2012-05-13',
    endDate: '2014-12-31'
  });
});
