Inline date edit with nojQuery

Inline Datepicker with vanilla JavaScript

I do write a lot of frontend, despite fact that I’m born to be backend guy. Long story short - we do have a lot of inline editing features especially elements like dates are pretty painful. HTML5 Introduced input type=date which is good enough to cover most of the cases, and we no longer need ugly and slow .datepicker() component from jQuery od 3rd party suppliers.

So if you do have edit you can just use <input type="date" value="yyyy-mm-dd"> field, and nice calendar will pop up. But we are looking for inline solution.

Clearing up git submodules problems

As some of you noted I moved by blog into Hugo . During the build process you have to pull many git repositories to compile full project. Because begging are always hard. For me it’s always trial and error I ended up with having many sub-repositories missing. I’m not going to show whole journey how to solve “the issue”.
