jKal: Yet another jQuery datepicker plugin


jKal: Yet another jQuery datepicker plugin

by Javod Khalaj

jKal is a simple jQuery based datepicker plugin. I built this for a project with a very specific need, and felt it worked well enough that it might be of benefit to others.

jKal works best when the date chosen does not have to go forwards or backwards more than a few years, and the day of the week is not of major importance either. Otherwise you’re going to be doing a lot of clicking, and referencing of full calendars.

In the project where I used this plugin, the user almost always chose a date within 2 years of the current date, and the day of the week week did not matter. However, the months switched up often, and in this scenario, jKal allows for a very quick selection.

Project and demo is available on bitbucket:
