Yet another jQuery-based date picker! This date picker provides an easy way of creating both single and multi-viewed calendars capable of accepting single, range, and multiple selected dates. Easy to style, with two example styles provided: an attractive ‘dark’ style, and a Google Analytics-like ‘clean’ style.

Quick start
