Bootstrap’s datepicker element is a user-friendly and intuitive way to select a date easily. It’s available for mobile, desktops and also has an option to display it in the “right-to-left” format.
The date picker widget is often used for selecting dates in web applications or forms. The datepicker can be used to select an exact day, define an interval of days, months or years. The datepicker comes with some predefined formats according to the country like DD/MM/YYYY or MM/DD/YYYY which are displayed accordingly on the web page based on the browser language settings.
I believe that there are some potential use cases where the default bootstrap date-picker might not be the right choice. You might need the date picker to match your design style. Perhaps you need the calendar to display in a different language, or to work with a different language, or you might need the calendar to not disappear the minute the date is changed. Maybe there are just some items you need to remove from the date-picker, or some that you need to display because the default list is too short.
In conclusion, Bootstrap has some great date and time pickers which are just as simple to use as jQuery plugins. These should be enough for most situations, but if you want a bigger range of features or if you’re working with Angular, then something a bit more hardcore may be required. There’s plenty out there and it’s all relatively easy to find and integrate into your projects. Good luck!
