Project Description


This app provides a form widget that uses three text inputs to enter the day, month and year of a date for a standard DateField. The field is based on Django’s forms.SplitDateTimeWidget.

Quick start

  1. Install django-splitdate:

    • From the pip repository: pip install django_splitdate
    • or directly from github: `pip install git+git://
  2. Add django_splitdate to your INSTALLED_APPS:

  3. (optional) Customize the Settings (see below)

  4. Use the SplitDateField in your Forms:

    from django_splitdate.forms import SplitDateField
    date = forms.SplitDateField()

Global Configuration

The SplitDateField can be configured globally in your file with the following options

SPLITDATE_ORDER (String or Dict):

Defines the ordering of the day, month and year fields.

The order of the fields is defined by a three character string, that contains the characters ‘d’(day), ‘m’(month), ‘y’(year) in the desired order.

The setting can either be such a string to be used on each SplitDateField no matter what language is selected, or a dictionary containing key, value pairs with a locale name as key and the corresponding order string as value to be used depending on the current locale


    ('en', 'mdy'),
    ('de', 'dmy')


A string defining the placeholder of the day field.

Default: _('DD')


A string defining the placeholder of the month field.

Default: _('MM')


A string defining the placeholder of the year field.

Default: _('YYYY')

Widget configuration

If you want to customize the widget of the SplitDateField, use the SplitDateWidget.

e.g. add a class:

from django_splitdate.forms import SplitDateField, SplitDateWidget
    date = forms.SplitDateField(widget=SplitDateWidget(attrs={'class':'myclass'}))

Additionally the widget takes the following local overwrites of the global configurations at initialization:

field_ordering (String or Dict):

Local overwrite for SPLITDATE_ORDER. Possible values, see above.

placeholder_day (String):

Local overwrite for SPLITDATE_PLACEHOLDER_DAY. Possible values, see above.

placeholder_month (String):

Local overwrite for SPLITDATE_PLACEHOLDER_MONTH. Possible values, see above.

placeholder_year (String):

Local overwrite for SPLITDATE_PLACEHOLDER_YEAR. Possible values, see above.

Running the tests

The included tests can be run standalone by running the tests/ script. The only requirement for this is Django >= 1.7. If you also want to run coverage, you need to install it before running the tests
