{
  type: 'datepicker',
  name: 'date',
  message: 'Select a date time: ',
  format: ['Y', '/', 'MM', '/', 'DD', ' ', 'HH', ':', 'mm', ':', 'ss']
}

// 2017/09/26 10:56:36 PM
{
  type: 'datepicker',
  name: 'date',
  message: 'Select a date time: ',
  format: ['Y', '/', 'MM', '/', 'DD', ' ', 'hh', ':', 'mm', ':', 'ss', ' ', 'A']
}

  name: 'date',
  message: 'Select a date time: ',
  default: new Date('2017-09-28 17:36:05'),
}
min, max

These specify a range for entry. Users will be prohibited from entering a value higher or lower.

{
  type: 'datepicker',
  name: 'date',
  message: 'Select a date time: ',
  // Enter only 2017/9/1 6:00 to 2017/9/26 18:00
  min: {
    year: 2017,
    month: 9,
    day: 1,
    hour: 6
  },
  max: {
    year: 2017,
    month: 9,
    day: 26,
    hour: 18
  }
}
steps.{ years, months, days, hours, minutes, seconds }

These specify the allowed interval (modulo), but only work when useing up and down keys.

For instance:

// Minutes can only be entered in intervals of 15 minutes
{
  type: 'datepicker',
  name: 'date',
  message: 'Select a date time: ',
  steps: {
    minutes: 15
  }
}
