Based on my previous work with making the Intuitive Date Input
Selection,
called DateBox. I have since created a very simple Engine which
abstracts
all the code, images, JavaScript, CSS, and the like within an engine
sandbox.

I may as well say this now, before the opinions come in. Some may
disagree
with this being an Engine, or the fact that it is "overkill". I
obviously
disagree with this statement based on my decision to use an engine. My
reasoning is based on the functionality achieved using the Engine's
ability
to leverage the sandbox for images, StyleSheets, and JavaScript files.
The
DateBox engine does also extend the base helper to provide a "date_box"
method which can be used within your views.

As new versions are released extending the functionality and adding new
functionality outlined on the WishList at http://datebox.inimit.com,
upgrading will simply require a svn up (if you installed with the -x
flag),
and a restart of your application to initialize the copying of all the
datebox_engine /public files within its sandbox in the global /public
directory.

To install, ensure that you are using the latest branches of engines or
edge_engines, and type the following:
script/plugin install [-x] datebox_engine

You can view the full readme at:
http://opensvn.csie.org/rails_engines/plugins/date...

You can see a working demo of DateBox at http://datebox.inimit.com

As mentioned, there are a growing number of WishList features have been
collecting. For those that are motivated, patches would gladly be
welcomed
to help further enhance this project :)

Look forward to hearing your feedback.

Regards,
Nathaniel.
