A Django date widget optimised for usability in entering dates of birth

Project description

Build Status

A Django date widget optimised for usability in entering dates of birth.

This is based on the guidelines put forward by the UK Government Digital Service at


from django import forms
from dobwidget import DateOfBirthWidget

class PersonModelForm(forms.ModelForm):
    Model form for people.

    class Meta(object):
        model = Person
        fields = ['name', 'date_of_birth']
        widgets = {
            'date_of_birth': DateOfBirthWidget(),

The DateOfBirthWidget can take an optional order parameter, to make it useful in non-UK jurisdictions:

class Meta(object):
    model = Person
    fields = ['name', 'date_of_birth']
    widgets = {
        'date_of_birth': DateOfBirthWidget(order='MDY'),



  • Handle far future dates that raise OverflowError when given to


  • Do not clear inputs if an invalid date is entered


  • Bug fix around character-based input


  • Allow attrs of the individual subwidgets to be set using day_attrs, month_attrs and year_attrs.


  • Initial release
