bootstrap datepicker today as default

I am using this bootstrap-datepicker for my datepicker. I'd like the datepicker to choose "today" for start day or default day.
I cannot figure out how to set "today" automatically, so I did an inefficient way

HTML:

<input type="text" value ="today();" id="datepicker"/>


JS:

$('#datepicker').datepicker();
function today(){
var d = new Date();
var curr_date = d.getDate();
var curr_month = d.getMonth() + 1;
var curr_year = d.getFullYear();
document.write(curr_date + "-" + curr_month + "-" + curr_year);
}


Online Sample: http://jsfiddle.net/BXZk2/

Just looking for an easy solution to make the default day as "TODAY".

Thanks

Answer

This should work:

$("#datepicker").datepicker("setDate", new Date());

And for autoclose (fiddle):

$('#datepicker').datepicker({
        "setDate": new Date(),
        "autoclose": true
});

jQuery > datepicker API
