If there is not a theme selected, the extension will select a new random theme with each reload of the page to be used. To make it remember the random choice, pass :


List of available themes :
['base', 'black-tie', 'blitzer' 'cupertino','dark-hive', 'dot-luv', 'eggplant', 'excite-bike', 'flick', 'hot-sneaks', 'humanity', 'le-frog','mint-choc', 'overcast', 'pepper-grinder', 'redmond','smoothness', 'south-street', 'start', 'sunny','swanky-purse', 'trontastic', 'ui-darkness','ui-lightness', 'vader']

datepicker(app=app, local=['static/js/jquery-ui.js', 'static/css/jquery-ui.css'])
