# How to use

Step 1

Step 2

include following js code at @section('footer_scripts') section

<script src="{{ asset('vendors/flatpickr/js/flatpickr.min.js') }}" type="text/javascript"></script>

Step 3

write HTML markup for it.


<div class="form-group">
    <label for="fancy">Date Selector :</label>
    <div class="input-group">
        <div class="input-group-append">
            <span class="input-group-text"><i class="livicon" data-name="calendar" data-size="16" data-c="#555555" data-hc="#555555" data-loop="true"></i></span>
        <input class="flatpickr flatpickr-input form-control" type="text" placeholder="select date">

Step 4

now, we need to initialize the plugin

you can place below code inside footer_scripts section or for better management, you can keep in a separate js file and reference that file in the current page.

Note: be sure to place initialization code below plugin js file
