Re: [Patternfly] Recommended date picker widget?


We would like to implement/use a datetime widget in FreeIPA Web UI. There hasn't be any development in this thread so I wonder if [5] is still the way to go.

[5] looks good but it lacks time component. I've found [6], it has a good license as well(MIT) and supports time. Downside is that it brings new dependency: moment.js

I would like to avoid using something different than the component that will be in PF.

So I would like to ask some questions:

1. Has anybody done any datepicker components evaluation?
2. Are there already any date/time + patternfly implementations or patternfly draft? 3. Do you guys prefer to use separate date and time pickers? Note: for us it's essential to combine it into single date object.

Thank you,

hi, andreas!

In Cockpit we currently have a couple of places [1,2,3,4] were we'll need to use some kind of date picker.

I imagine this being a useful widget to other projects as well, so I wanted to check if Patternfly recommend any particular calendar widget library to use.
I found bootstrap-datepicker [5] that seems nice and has a Apache 2.0 license, but there are probably others out there.

you are correct.  patternfly does not include a date picker, but bootstrap-datepicker looks like a good choice, and the one i’d probably pick (good features, bower support, source less files, etc.).

UXD-team, are you seeing a need for date pickers?
