Is there a better, smaller alternative to the jQuery datepicker?
The ui.datepicker.js has app. 70kb which is pretty huge imo.
Could it be compressed?
you don't need the whole ui library just http://jqueryui.com/download disable the other stuff or you can use google ajax api cdn. the best alternative to jui datepicker is the html5 datepicker with is only supported by opera so far
<input type="datetime-local" />
