A Django widget for the Tempus Dominus Bootstrap 4 DateTime picker.

Project description

Django Tempus Dominus

Django Tempus Dominus provides Django widgets for the Tempus Dominus Bootstrap 4 DateTime date and time picker. Why yet another date and time picker for Django? None supported the Tempus Dominus date and time picker, which is actively developed and feature rich. It is a successor to the popular bootstrap-datetimepicker JavaScript library.


  • From PyPI: pip install django-tempus-dominus

  • From source:

git clone git+
pip install -e django-tempus-dominus

Usage & Settings

A Django setting is provided to use the browser's localized date and time configuration:

  • TEMPUS_DOMINUS_LOCALIZE (default: False): if True, widgets will be translated to the selected browser language and use the localized date and time formats.

Three widgets are provided:

  • DatePicker
    • Defaults to YYYY-MM-DD
    • Defaults to L if TEMPUS_DOMINUS_LOCALIZE is True
  • DateTimePicker
    • Defaults to YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss
    • Defaults to L LTS if TEMPUS_DOMINUS_LOCALIZE is True
  • TimePicker
    • Defaults to HH:mm:ss
    • Defaults to LTS if TEMPUS_DOMINUS_LOCALIZE is True

In your Django form, you can use the widgets like this:

import datetime

from django import forms
from tempus_dominus.widgets import DatePicker, TimePicker, DateTimePicker

class MyForm(forms.Form):
    date_field = forms.DateField(widget=DatePicker())
    date_field_required_with_min_max_date = forms.DateField(
                'minDate': '2009-01-20',
                'maxDate': '2017-01-20',
    time_field = forms.TimeField(
                'enabledHours': [9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16],
    datetime_field = forms.DateTimeField(
                'minDate': ( + datetime.timedelta(days=1)).strftime('%Y-%m-%d'),  # Tomorrow
                'useCurrent': True,
                'collapse': False,

The options dictionary will be passed to Tempus Dominus. A full list of options is available here.

Then in your template, include jQuery, {{ }}, and render the form:

        <script crossorigin="anonymous" integrity="sha384-xBuQ/xzmlsLoJpyjoggmTEz8OWUFM0/RC5BsqQBDX2v5cMvDHcMakNTNrHIW2I5f" src=""></script>
        {{ }}
    <form method="post" action=".">
        {% csrf_token %}
        {{ form.as_p }}
