This is a rails-plugin which can create a checkbox for attributes which are datetime-fields in the database. So, if you want to store the date when a user appected some terms or received some goods, but want to circumvent the need of selecting the proper date and time from 6 dropdowns, you can just use this plugin. It creates some wrapper-methods on the model for the attributes you specify and provides a form-helper which uses these. The model-method also work with standard checkbox-tags
