DateTime Picker

I found a really cool DateTime Picker on GitHub, but it is an extension from JQuery UI's DatePicker. The problem I have is I am not using JQuery UI, but other UI widgets from other places. I don't want to have to include JQuery UI just for one DateTime Picker.

Can you just use the DateTime Picker as a standalone from JQuery UI, or would that require all of JQuery UI.

If it requires the entire JQuery UI, does anyone know of a nice looking Date Time picker out there that doesn't require a huge library of other widgets? I was hoping Twitter's Bootstrap might have such a widget, but they don't.

Thanks

Mark

Well if you want to use the jQuery UI version, you can build a custom build that just requires core and the datepicker. There are tons of date pickers out there, we only use jQuery UIs and it is not the best.

Yeah, I am not a fan of JQuery UI.

Thanks
