How to initialize datepicker in stimulus controller?

Lee Terng Gio asked in Javascript

I'm using datepicker and turbo frame. The datepicker is broken when the frame is replaced. I'm doing turbo:load in javascript file, it works when navigating between pages, but it will be broken when the form is replaced. I'm thinking to initialize datepicker in stimulus controller but I'm not familiar with stimulus. There aren't many documentation on stimulus, any idea?

Turbo:load runs when a page loads, not a frame. It's the same as the old turbolinks event. Frames are independent from page views which means you need to setup a Stimulus controller instead.

Check out stimulus-flatpickr and you won't have to build anything. 👍
