How to set date format in datepicker in the portal template?

How to set the dateformat in datepicker for a portal template? The problem is that now it's set per user so I have problems in the controller converting into a datetime object, because the format is not constant and I don't want to have 100 elifs to guess the date format.

< i-n-p-u-t type="text" name="date_from" class="form-control o_website_form_date" style="max-width: 200px;" required="required"/>

I've tried to add:

$('.datepicker').datepicker({
format: 'dd.mm.yyyy',
});
and a few other things and none of them worked.

What's wrong with this new text field, that posting code from portal qweb templates isn't possible!!!! That's why the input has '-' between letters.

Hi Samo,

Try "data-date-format" attribute in the input tag. Maybe it would help.

Ex:

<input type="text" data-date-format="YYYY-MM-DD"/>

Thanks... I was such an idiot. I've tried data-date-format="dd.mm.yyyy" that I found with google and it didn't seem to work. This data-date-format="DD.MM.YYYY" now works.
