Timeago

Timeago (GitHub: rmm5t / jquery-timeago, License: MIT) by Ryan McGeary generates fuzzy timestamps (like “less than a minute ago”) from ISO 8601 formatted dates and times:

$('selector').timeago();

It even has i18n support!

This plugin takes advantage of the Datetime Design Pattern microformat.

glDatePicker

glDatePicker (GitHub: glad / glDatePicker) by Gautam Lad is a lightweight date picker, featuring:

  • Forward/backward navigation
  • Current date highlight
  • Various date selection and navigation restriction options
  • Styles per-date picker

The most basic usage is just $('#date1').glDatePicker(), and there are lots of examples on the project’s homepage.
